An endowment provides stability, opportunities for innovation, and a hedge against fluctuations in the economy. Established in 2001, the purpose of the endowment fund is to stabilize school finances and provide a margin of financial flexibility and security to help to maintain the vitality and viability of the school.
As of Spring 2021, the school’s endowment has reached $1 million, and discussions will soon be underway to consider options around stewardship of interest income to benefit our learning community. Examples for consideration include:
We are grateful for contributions to the school endowment fund, and for the remarkable momentum behind the fund instigated by generous school families, friends and alumni. Donations in excess of $500 are recognized with an engraved brick in the school’s beautiful Centennial Plaza.
