About the Endowment

Principles of the endowment align with the motto of university founder M.E. Davenport:  Make a Living, Make a Life, Make a Contribution.  Funded initiatives will epitomize these tenets by advancing the highest ideals, innovations, and practices in the areas of academics, career preparation, and civic commitment.


Across three centuries, Davenport classrooms have always trained for emerging high-demand fields.  By supporting the most innovative and anticipatory ideas in learning, leadership, and achievement, the Legacy Endowment will help assure that a Davenport University education continues to prepare students for relevant, meaningful careers.
