Endowing the future of St. Paul’s School for Girls
Why endowment is important
Gifts to the St. Paul’s School for Girls’ endowment provide
resources that will enable our school to maintain the quality of the St. Paul’s
School for Girls experience and allow us to enhance our outstanding educational
program in perpetuity.
Building the school’s endowment is one of our highest
strategic priorities. Like all independent schools, SPSG relies on income from
endowment funds to provide support for ongoing programs such as scholarship,
programming, and faculty chairs. Essentially, endowment acts as the school’s
savings account; funds are invested by the Finance Committee of the Board of
Trustees with the goals of producing both yearly income and appreciation of the
value of the original gift. Because gifts to endowment are in perpetuity,
donors directly impact the school now and for future generations. A strong
endowment strengthens our school.
Gifts to our endowment may
be unrestricted or restricted to a particular fund or area of school life.
Endowed funds can support the development of innovations in education, athletic
or performing arts programs, provide financial support for scholarships, and
allow us to offer competitive salaries, rewards and opportunities for
professional growth for our faculty.
Endowment is an investment in our mission.
Gifts of $25,000 or more to unrestricted endowment provides the school
with a solid level of financial security and flexibility. Gifts to the
endowment send a strong message to the entire community that donors believe in
Financial Aid is
one area that is crucial to the school’s ability to recruit a talented and
diverse student body. For a gift of
$100,000, a scholarship may be named for the donor, a friend, or loved one. A
gift of approximately $600,000 would provide sufficient income for full
financial aid for one student annually.
