About the Endowment Fund

The Washington School Foundation was organized in 1999 when Washington School received tax-exempt status. The primary purpose of the WS Foundation is to create and manage an Endowment Fund to provide for Washington School’s continued academic excellence. Only the income of the Endowment Fund will be used to enhance the academic programs and curriculum, including providing supplements for administrative and faculty compensation.

The Foundation is governed by a separate Board of Trustees. The Trustees have identified the Endowment Fund as the key to offsetting Washington School’s tuition-driven operating budget and securing the school’s standards of academic excellence.

In 2005, the Board of Trustees initiated a major fundraising campaign. Since that time, Washington School’s Endowment has grown to over $3.3 million in cash and pledges. Because the Board of Trustees believes that continuing to provide a quality, college preparatory education for the children of our community is truly Washington School’s greatest mission, they remain committed to building the Endowment Fund.

There are several ways to give to the Endowment Fund. Please consider a tax-deductible donation to the Washington School Foundation, and join our mission today!
