The University must report each year to the Kellogg Foundation on the activities supported by our Kellogg Legacy Project Endowment. We must report in categories that align with the goals of the Foundation. To facilitate this reporting, all projects must report on their accomplishments and successes using a form which requests relevant information in each category. Please complete the form below.

The Kellogg Legacy Project Endowment (Endowment) is a multi-million dollar investment in the future of our students, our state, and our nation. This remarkable gift from one of the nation's leading foundations supporting education will help us strengthen student success programs, improve support for faculty teaching and scholarly innovation, expand relations with our external community, and provide strong impetus to our first-ever comprehensive capital campaign. Proceeds from the endowment will be invested by the President in projects and activities that strengthen the university and advance its major goals, particularly the success of our disadvantaged or underprivileged students.

Once fully endowed at $40 million, the Endowment earnings should enable funding about $2 million per year. This amount assumes a return of 5%. Only what is earned may be spent; the corpus of the endowment may not be touched. In years when earnings are less than 5%, less will be spent. In years when earnings exceed 5%, the excess will be returned to the corpus of the Endowment, enabling it to grow over time.
In keeping with the goals of the Kellogg Legacy Project Endowment, projects selected for funding will strengthen the core values of the university and advance its major goals. A successful proposal will outline how the project will meet one or more of the following requirements related to the university mission and the Kellogg Legacy Project Endowment goals, including: scholarship, service to the State of California or the local community, learn-by-doing pedagogy, student success, support for disadvantaged and/or underrepresented students, and/or returning veterans.
Some projects previously funded by the Kellogg Legacy Project are described at, http://polycentric.csupomona.edu/news_stories/2011/08/kellogg-endowment-grants-2010-12.html.
Proposals must provide measurable objectives and an effective assessment plan to determine if the project objectives are being achieved. A detailed budget must also be provided that outlines specifically how the funds will be used. If it is determined that the budget is not feasible the project will not be funded. Typical funding requests are between $20,000 - $70,000 per year. Length rules indicated in the application form must be followed.
The Endowment will not merely replace state support and funds should not be requested for items that should be state funded. Limited funds may be requested for small construction or renovation projects. Capital projects or the augmentation of faculty or staff will not be considered for funding. Support may be requested to enhance existing programs or to launch new initiatives.
Multiple year funding may be requested, though continued funding will depend on availability of funds and achievement of intermediate project objectives. No project will be funded for more than three years and multi-year projects will be funded on a declining basis, typically:
100% the first year,
75% the second,
50% the third.
No project will be funded indefinitely and a sustainability plan should be provided if the project is to continue beyond the funding period.
The President may always waive campus restrictions on the Endowment.
