English Department

Use the form below to conveniently and securely make your online donation toward an endowment in the names of Russell and Ruth Peck—a permanent fund supporting the Department of English that will bear their names in perpetuity.

The University of Rochester aims to raise $1,000,000 by December 31, 2013, the minimum required for a named directorship. If the total reaches $1,500,000 by December 31, 2013, the fund may alternatively be used for a named professorship. Otherwise the endowment will be designated for a purpose which most closely meets the goal of honoring Professor Peck’s legacy at the University. Under New York State law, the University may expend so much of this endowment fund as the Board of Trustees deems prudent after considering the preservation and purpose of the fund, economic factors including inflation, the expected total return from investment of fund assets, the University’s investment policy, and other resources and alternatives to expending the fund.
