The dollars received from naming rights will be used to create an endowment and only the interest earned on the endowment will be spent to support the named opportunity unless otherwise noted. This will ensure the perpetuity of the program’s existence. In the case of capital projects, the interest earned from the endowment will support the programs and/or operating costs associated with the specific site.
