Endowment Matters

Developing strong-minded, gentle-hearted Spartans takes true dedication and secure financial footing. Unlike other schools of our caliber, St. Stephen’s runs a lean financial operation and maintains a modest endowment. Yet, without a larger endowment, we risk limiting opportunities for our students and faculty. That is why we are launching the most ambitious endowment initiative in our school’s history — one that will uphold and preserve the St. Stephen’s experience for generations of Spartans to come.

In recent years, St. Stephen’s has done the hard work of preserving and rebuilding our campus environment. Now it is time to invest in people — the heart and soul of our school community.

Endowment is the great differentiator between schools that stay true to their values and those that do not.

Now Is The Time

Now is the time for those of us who go our own way to come together for St. Stephen’s. Yes, we have a fierce attachment to our land, to The Hill, but our attachment to one another and our belief in the kind of people we send into the world is even greater. This is the time to stand up for Spartans.

We welcome gifts to the General Endowment, which provide the greatest flexibility.
