Endowment contributions demonstrate the heart and soul of what makes Collegiate School so great. For over 100 years, many people have contributed time, talent and spirit in a unique and inspiring way to touch the lives of our students and faculty at Collegiate. Through generous contributions from families, classmates and friends, named scholarships and endowments have been established to perpetuate the legacy of these individuals.

Creating a Legacy Through Endowment

Gifts to Collegiate’s endowment are particularly valuable because they are invested in perpetuity, creating a permanent source of funding for ongoing priorities, such as faculty and staff professional development, scholarship and facilities maintenance. The generous endowment donor can be assured that these gifts will serve their intended purposes for as long as the School continues to exist. The gift is never spent; each year a portion of the investment gain is used to support the School’s activities.

Collegiate has an impressive collection of 170 restricted and unrestricted endowment and scholarship funds. As of June 30, 2022, these endowments were valued at just over $84.6 million.

Endowment Growth & Returns

Endowed Scholarships and Funds

During the 2022-23 school year, income was received for the following endowments and restricted funds. It is Collegiate’s policy to use a portion of the market value of endowed funds to support programs designated by the donors and the Board of Trustees. The balance of the income is reinvested in order to preserve the value of Collegiate School’s endowment relative to inflation. For more information on Collegiate’s endowed funds or to establish a new one, please contact Kristen Williams, Chief Development Officer, at 804.741.9722 or

Collegiate School Endowments

“A vibrant culture of philanthropy has sustained Collegiate’s ability to offer excellence in education for over 100 years. Endowment plays a vital role in allowing the School to fulfill its mission and ensure long-term financial stability.”
