The excellence of Johns Hopkins rests on its ability to attract and retain the very finest faculty members and academic leaders. Endowed professorships support the work of outstanding faculty, significantly advancing their work as teachers, scholars, researchers, and clinicians.

Endowment gifts are invested by Johns Hopkins. A portion of the income is spent each year for the designated purpose and the remainder is added to the principal.

Funding an Endowed Professorship
Donors may fund an endowed professorship with a gift of $2.5 million. A gift of $5 million will create an academic directorship. An endowed deanship may be created with a gift of $10 million.

Naming Opportunities
Donors may choose to name an endowed professorship for themselves and/or in honor or memory of someone else. Donors often indicate a preference for the academic area to be supported by the professorship they endow; other donors prefer that the dean of the school identify the areas of greatest need.

For more information about creating an endowed professorship, please contact the director of development at any of the institution's schools or contact:
