Capital & Endowment Gifts – Awards, Prizes, and Programs
Thanks to an outpouring of gifts and the School’s strong management of funds during a global pandemic, Episcopal’s endowment grew by $5 million to reach $258 million in 2020. We continue executing the 2018 Strategic Plan with a call for “bold growth” in the endowment, which will help moderate tuition increases, make the School affordable for more families, and strengthen its distinctive programs and staff.
Income from the endowment funds faculty masterships, salary enhancements, and faculty educational programs; provides financial assistance to deserving students; enhances academic programs; and covers ongoing campus maintenance costs. Endowment funds also ensure that the campus remains an ideal setting for learning and incorporates state-of-the-art technology in all disciplines. Above all, a growing endowment helps moderate tuition increases.
