There are three numbers used to report the balance for an endowment. The schema for these numbers is as follows:
- An “H” or “G” in front of the number indicates accumulated gifts that are to be held in perpetuity as stipulated by the donor.
- An “R” in front of the number indicates accumulated net revenues (interest, dividends, gains and losses, less expenses) that are allowed to be spent under the terms of the University’s spending policy.
- An ”E” in front of the number indicates the accumulated total of gifts and net revenues.
