Endowed funds established during the Greater > Than campaign


“Cornell’s endowment is comprised of over 700 individual funds, most named by donors in honor or memory of beloved family members, classmates, or faculty. Our endowment is a snapshot of Cornell’s history and individuals’ hopes for its future. It reflects the love and commitment that Cornellians have for our special corner of the world.” — Jonathan Brand, President

The college is deeply grateful to all individuals who have made gifts to Cornell’s endowment since the launch of the Greater > Than campaign on July 1, 2015. These individuals have made outright endowment commitments of $50,000 or more to establish new, or add to existing, endowed funds:
