Gifts to endowment help secure the long-term future of Stevenson.
Endowed funds have a common objective: to provide support not just for one year or even one generation, but in perpetuity. An endowed fund is a permanently invested fund from which a 4% draw is available for a designated purpose each year.
There are three ways to give to endowment:
- Make a gift to the Stevenson’s General Endowment Fund
- Make a gift to one of the established endowed funds listed below that support financial aid, faculty enrichment, and programs
- Establish a new endowment with a minimum investment of $100,000.
