The endowment provides core support for our mission and guarantees the financial future of the School.
Through the years, generous alumni, families, and friends have established long-term funds dedicated to supporting specific activities, programs, and initiatives in the School. These restricted funds help to provide financial stability for the School while ensuring enduring support for an aspect of school life for which donors feel particular passion.
