Since 1978, the Foundation has managed and administered funds for the benefit of institutions and foundations affiliated with the University System of Maryland. Our investment objective is to generate returns so that distributions can be made to support the spending activities of the System institutions, and to preserve capital as adjusted for inflation. The endowment pool is comprised of just over 3,700 individual endowment accounts of 23 institutions. Distributions to these institutions support students, faculty, research, facilities, and special initiatives.
