An endowment is a collection of assets invested to support ENMU-Roswell’s educational mission in perpetuity. With your gift, you may establish an endowment towards a specific purpose.

Annual Giving

 An annual gift can be made at any time for any reason. Annual gifts are used to defray day-to-day expenses as increasing enrollment and demands strain ENMU-Roswell’s resources.  Unrestricted donations provide the Foundation’s directors the flexibility to identify where funds are needed most to improve and strengthen ENMU-Roswell.  Your contributions can also be restricted to one or more specific areas of interest to you.

Memorial/Named Scholarships

You may make a contribution to the Foundation in the memory of a family member or friend.  You may make a general gift or a gift to be designated for a specific area.  You can also choose to award a one-time scholarship.

Presidential Scholarship

The ENMU-Roswell Presidential Scholarship is the most prestigious scholarship awarded by Eastern New Mexico University-Roswell and funded by the Foundation. It is a competitive scholarship program open to the top 10-percent of Chaves County and Artesia high school graduates. The scholarship covers tuition/fees and books at the Roswell campus for two years as students complete the requirements for an associate degree.

Leaving a Legacy

When considering your long range estate and financial plans or preparing your will, we ask you to remember ENMU-Roswell. You can name the Foundation in your will as a beneficiary of your estate with either a specific amount or a percentage of the remainder.  You may also give assets other than cash, such as real estate, mineral rights, or art.
