Other Giving Options

Naming Halls/Classrooms/Labs:

Eligible donors may request their names be given to halls, classrooms, laboratories or auditoriums of the University. By naming a facility, you can ensure that the name of your company or loved ones lives on at the Sabancı University campus while making a contribution to the education of youth.

Establishing Named Fund:

Individuals or institutions may establish funds in their name to support Sabancı University students in their academic efforts or social projects. Funds may be named after the donor, in honor or memory of other persons, after an institution, or a specific project.

There are two types of named funds:

  • Named Endowment Funds:  one or more assets are donated to SU and their capital values are preserved (adjusting for inflation) while revenues are allocated as grants; or
  • Named Funds: donors make a commitment to give a certain amount every year.

The establishment of named funds is subject to the approval of the Board of Trustees for each donation and each name.
