Gifts to the endowment serve as a financial foundation securing Watkinson's future and providing resources to the school’s operating budget. Many of the school’s permanently endowed funds support professional development, scholarships and academic programs. The school invests the endowed gifts and annually draws on the fund that fall within the endowment guidelines as approved annually by the Board of Trustees.
We are grateful to our alumni, parents and friends who have established and contributed to a variety of funds that enhance and sustain existing educational offerings as well as helped to launch new programs.
Adding to existing named funds in order to grow the corpus of the fund, and therefore increase the amount available to support the budget each year, is one of the ways that the Watkinson constituencies can demonstrate their ongoing dedication to “give students the power to shape their lives and the world around them.” Listed at right are named restricted funds with a corpus of $25,000 or more.
