Endowment contributions demonstrate the heart and soul of what makes Collegiate School so great. In the 100 year history of our School, many people have contributed time, talent and spirit in a unique and inspiring way to touch the lives of our students and faculty. 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 154 restricted and unrestricted endowment and scholarship funds. As of June 30, 2015, these endowments were valued at $58.9 million.
