University School is grateful for its exceptional endowment. As it grows, the endowment allows the school to strive to be one of the nation’s leaders in the education of boys and ensures that future generations of students will continue to be educated in the University School tradition.
Currently, University School’s endowment is $86 million, subject to variation due to market fluctuations, and provides approximately $2.4 million in annual revenue to the school. University School carefully invests and manages its endowed funds under the supervision of its Board of Trustees. Based on spending limits established by the Board, a certain portion of the income generated by the endowment is spent to support the people and programs that differentiate the school from its peers and the remainder is reinvested to ensure the school’s financial stability for generations to come. Gifts to the endowment provide critical support that allows University School to implement the initiatives identified in the school’s strategic plan.
The school can boast many named endowment funds. These named endowments provide the essential support that allows University School to attract and retain an outstanding and dynamic faculty, maintain the best and brightest student body, and provide its students with opportunities for engagement outside the walls of the school.
