1. Al-Quds Waqf fund & Endowment
Al-Quds endowment is an integral part of the assistance provided to Al-Quds University, it is of great value, and would provide opportunities for students in need. This idea is based on the principle of investment, as an amount of money given is frozen, while the returns of this money are used to cover goals such as (scholarships, building development, orphan’s sponsorship, ...) which will have a positive impact in supporting Al-Quds University. The university is working continuously to raise the amount of endowment in order to raise the amount of the returns from it, to provide more needed scholarships. Endowment levels:
General Endowment: Any amount is suspended in order to support the General Endowment at Al-Quds University.
Private Endowment: A private endowment can be called by donating $400,000.
The endowment goal is allocated before implementation begins.
