Funds functioning as endowment support the Newcomb Institute. That amount is now valued at approximately $36 million and generates almost $2 million for our programs each year. The Newcomb Foundation Board ensures that Newcomb Institute spends that money wisely. Named endowments support a variety of other activities, including lecture series, grants, and the Newcomb Archives.
Endowments and funds functioning as endowments do not meet the full financial cost of operating NI, which funds the activities of the Newcomb Alumnae Association. Annual support from alumnae and friends provide critical funds to enhance the services and opportunities necessary to educate undergraduate women for leadership at Tulane University.
A gift of $1,500+ to Newcomb Institute’s Annual Fund earns membership to Tulane’s Associates program. Tulane Associates are alumni, parents and friends who invest in the university's mission by making annual unrestricted leadership gifts.
