Thanks to the generosity of the EHS community, the School has seen especially great success in a significant priority identified in the 2018 Strategic Plan: growth of endowment earmarked for financial aid. With gifts and commitments of nearly $18 million to this effort, the School’s annual financial aid budget has increased by 13% since 2018.
EHS supporters are making the Episcopal experience affordable for more families and more of the country’s best and brightest students. In thank-you letters to donors, scholarship recipients explain what that means to them:
