Make a Gift to an Endowment
Endowment plays a critical role in allowing the school to fulfill its mission and ensure long-term financial stability. Thank you for considering a gift to one of our endowments.
- Endowment funds 5% of the operating budget, providing scholarship funds, enhancing the academic program, and supporting faculty professional development while sustaining the school's long-term stability.
- Country Day's endowment is the largest among independent schools in North Carolina—signaling our leadership and our ambition.
- 58 restricted and unrestricted endowment and scholarship funds valued at $50.7 million (as of June 30, 2020).
- While endowments are established through sizable initial gifts, they may grow through smaller, ongoing gifts from other supporters of the school.
