It is the desire of the donors that this fund should benefit the University in perpetuity. If the need for this fund should cease to exist or so diminish as to provide unused income, then another use shall be designated by the Board of Trustees in consultation with the Dean of the College of Medicine, Chairperson of the Department of Family Medicine, or program administrative officer in order to carry out the desire of the donors.
