Endowed Giving

St. Christopher’s is blessed with generations of generous alumni, parents and friends who have established endowed funds to support the school. Through these gifts, endowment donors become an integral part of the St. Christopher’s legacy by making the sustainability of the school a priority. Their endowed gifts provide a permanent source of income that positively impacts our students, faculty and programs for generations to come.

A Strong Endowment Ensures Sustainability

A strong endowment allows St. Christopher’s to plan for the school’s future as well as meet current strategic priorities such as affordability, faculty support, and academic program enhancements that safeguard the excellence of a St. Christopher's education for future generations. 

Through prudent investment management by the St. Christopher’s School Foundation, our endowment generates permanent income that supports the school’s operating budget and helps to mitigate the need for large tuition increases, therefore maintaining affordability for all families. Increasing St. Christopher’s endowment remains one of the most important financial objectives of the school.

Ways to Give to Endowment

Establishing a new endowed fund or supporting an already existing endowed fund creates a permanent legacy for you and your family at St. Christopher’s. Donors are often moved to contribute to endowed funds to honor or memorialize a family member, friend or a beloved faculty member, ensuring they will be remembered at St. Christopher’s for generations to come. 

Donors may support endowed funds through gifts of cash, securities, or by making a planned gift. To learn more about how to support the St. Christopher’s endowment, please contact Jane Garnet Brown via email or call (804) 282-3185 x5220.
