Endowment and Special Projects
In addition to Annual Giving and the Shaping the Future Campaign for the 60th Anniversary, The Country School welcomes gifts earmarked for specific projects or initiatives. Some of these directly support our program; others support people. Some of these initiatives include:
- Endowment Fund
- STEAM Fund
- Children's Garden Fund
- Outdoor Education Fund
- The Heritage Society - Planned Giving
Endowment funds are similar to savings accounts that generate income from the investment of the principal. When a gift is made to the General Endowment Fund, Founders' Promise Endowment Fund or MacLane Endowment Fund the gift is invested, allowed to grow, and to produce income.At The Country School, all monies and interest earned through endowment are earmarked for scholarship.
During the spring 2012 Farmhouse Reserve/Full STEAM Ahead Celebration, funds were raised to advance Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (or STEAM) at The Country School. We welcome gifts earmarked for this signature program, which will help prepare our students for life and careers in the 21st Century.
The Country School welcomes gifts to particular aspects of our program, and in recent years we have been pleased to receive generous donations earmarked for Outdoor Education, another longstanding Country School signature program. These donations help ensure that we continue to deliver the kind of unforgettable, life-changing outdoor experiences that our alumni prize.
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!
