St. Andrew's endowment makes possible the existence and presence of these twin core strengths. Investment income from our endowment underwrites St. Andrew's financial aid program and faculty support funds; without our endowment draw, we would not be able to attract the caliber or the diversity of students or teachers we do today. The current and future strength of St. Andrew’s depends on our ability to deepen the School’s historic, generous commitment to financial aid and faculty development.

How Endowment Giving Works
Endowment gifts can be made directly to the school's original endowment, established by school founder A. Felix duPont, or to a subsidiary endowment fund that supports a specific financial aid scholarship or academic department. Donors who wish to create a new endowed fund can do so with a minimum gift of $100,000, and may choose the name of the fund and determine its purpose and parameters in collaboration with the School's Advancement team. For a list of existing funds and new endowment fund opportunities, please see below.
The tradition of creating named endowed funds in academic communities reflects a school’s highest ideals and mission. Endowed funds celebrate the essential dynamic that makes great education possible: the connection between gifted, generous, creative teachers and promising, engaged, passionate students.
