What is the Endowment?

Endowment funds are similar to savings accounts that generate income from the investment of the principal. For example, a gift to the MacLane Fund for Scholarship is placed in the endowment, allowing it to grow and produce more income. While the principal is not touched, an annual distribution from the earnings supports the school. A gift to the endowment is not a gift to the annual fund, but many families choose to support both.

Gifts of Time and Expertise

Each year, volunteers give thousands of hours of time and expertise to our community, invaluable resources as we attempt to offer the best education possible to our students.

We thank all our donors, volunteers, and supporters!
