It assists the university in generating private support and manages, invests, and administers private gifts, including endowments and real property. It makes expenditures to or for programs of the university above and beyond the support that can be provided by state funds.

Over the past five years, George Mason's endowment has grown from $14.8 million to $33.5 million, and assets from $30 million to $80 million.
