Endowments

Endowments provide financial support for the future needs of the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry. You can create a named endowment by making a $50,000 gift or pledge.

These types of gifts help support the dental school by providing student scholarships, faculty support, chairs or professorships,  or funds for patient care, departments or facilities. 

If you would like to create an endowment, please contact Dr. Craig Yarborough, Associate Dean of Institutional Advancement at 415.929.6430 or cyarborough@pacific.edu.

The Power of the Powell Match — Dollar-for-dollar match of new gifts to endowments

A full $85 million of the Powell's gift is dedicated to matching, one for one, new endowment gifts of $50,000 or more. For more information about the Powell Match please visit: Pacific.edu/Powellmatch
