Foundation Endowment Funds

An endowment fund is created when a donation is given to St. Paul’s School Foundation to serve as a perpetual legacy that can honor or memorialize an individual loved one or an entire family. The endowment fund remains intact in perpetuity, while its earnings support a purpose chosen by the donor. Naming opportunities begin at $10,000. An endowment fund is created when a donor(s) sign a gift agreement with St. Paul's Episcopal School.
