707 Endowments

Fiscal Operations Manual
Section 700: Reserves and Investment Management
Effective: 01/01/2003
Revised: 01/25/2010

Endowments are donations from a donor where the donor specifies that the principal cannot be expended.  The money is invested in stocks by the Oregon University System.  The spending rate is determined by the State Board of Higher Education based on a 5-year moving average over the entire pool of investments of the OUS.  These funds (6XXXXX) are distributed and posted on a monthly basis to appropriate restricted gift funds.

Endowment fund investments are pooled system wide.  The Controllers Division is responsible for calculating the gain and loss on these investments.  The institutions cannot make any entries that reduce Endowment Funds.  For more information, contact the Office of Business Affairs at 7-0624.
