Memorial and Tribute Gifts

Memorial and Tribute gifts are ways to honor the life and accomplishments of a friend, relative, teacher or student, who may have special ties to Presentation College. When making a gift to memorialize or honor someone, please send to:

Presentation College Office of Advancement
1500 N. Main St.
Aberdeen, SD 57401

Include the following information:

•Name of the person being recognized. If a memorial gift, please include the date of death (copy of obituary, if possible, is helpful).

•Name of the individual(s) to whom notice of this gift should be sent.

•Name, address and amount of each donation included in the envelope.

•Telephone number of the principal donor, in case there are any questions.

•Memorial and tribute gifts are placed in our scholarship endowment, unless otherwise requested. A memorial or tribute card is then sent to the family, mentioning the name and address of the donor, but not the amount of the gift. Special accounts may be set up in the name of the recognized individual, if requested.

Named Endowed Gifts

Endowments are established as permanent fund gifts, which provide annual income for a specific program or purpose, such as scholarships, professorships or academic programs. Endowed funds can be named for the donor or anyone the donor wishes to designate. A minimum gift of $10,000 is required to establish an endowment at Presentation College. For more information, contact the Advancement Office at (605) 229-8454.


Scholarship Gifts

Each year, hundreds of students directly benefit from the generous financial support of our alumni and friends through academic and leadership scholarships. Scholarships are an excellent way to pay tribute to the special ties you have to Presentation College. The gift can be named in memory or honor of someone, at the discretion of the donor(s). Friends and family members can contribute to scholarships at any time.

There are two types of scholarships: direct and endowed.

Endowed Scholarships

Endowed funds are maintained in perpetuity and a portion of the annual investment return is used to fund the purpose specified by the donor.

Endowed, named scholarships require a minimum gift of $10,000. At the time the donor makes the gift, Presentation College prepares a Memorandum of Agreement which documents the donor’s intended use of the endowment and the College’s administration of the fund. The amount used to fund the scholarships is established each year by the College Board of Trustees. Earnings in excess of the payout are used to grow the fund. Endowments are a convenient way to provide a long-term commitment to Presentation College, while leaving a legacy reflecting your interests and generosity.

Direct Scholarships

With a direct scholarship, the gift is given directly to students, as specified by the donor. This requires a minimum gift of $1,000.
