Increasing and protecting our endowment is vital to the health and well-being of Calvert School. Gifts of any size may be made to the endowment, however, to create a new, named endowment fund requires a minimum gift of $25,000. Named endowments provide a way to celebrate the lives of generous donors, family members, friends, or any special group, forever linking their names to the life and purpose of Calvert School.
Each year, 4.2 percent (on a rolling three year average) of the principal of each endowed fund is spent to support faculty, scholarships, student programs, and other areas. Unrestricted endowment gifts give Calvert the flexibility to allocate funds to meet our greatest, most pressing needs. We welcome and encourage you to give an unrestricted gift to the endowment, to support one of our existing funds, or to create a named endowed fund of your own.
