Endowment Giving

A gift to the Endowment is an investment in the future of The McGillis School. Endowment growth is an area of strategic importance for McGillis. McGillis endowment funds are invested in perpetuity and fund income provides resources used to meet current operating budget priorities.

 

What is an Endowment Fund?

An Endowment fund is a savings account for the School which is invested according to policies adopted by the Board of Trustees. A portion of the earnings is then spent each year to help cover the School's annual expenses, either for the general operating budget or for specific programs designated by donors.

 

Why is it Important?

An Endowment Fund provides a steady source of income for McGillis making it possible for the School to be less reliant on tuition and annual fundraising programs to balance the budget each year. A larger Endowment fund enhances our ability to fulfill our mission now and for many years to come. 

 

Endowment Funds

The McGillis Community Scholarship Endowment Fund 

Established in 2017 by The Robert Norris Foundation, this fund provides scholarships to students with demonstrated financial need. All members of the McGillis community are invited to donate to this fund, ensuring that access to the McGillis experience will exist for current and future generations of McGillis students.

 

The Joanne S. McGillis Endowment Fund

Established in 2015 by Joanne McGillis to fund and support competitive salaries, benefits, professional development, and other related expenses in order to attract and retain the very best teachers, Head of School, and administration the School can afford.

The McGillis School and community are a part of who I am. After thirteen years, I am among colleagues who care passionately about the mission and are willing to go above and beyond to understand and support our children, their families, and each other. As I sit and watch my high school senior who began at McGillis as a first grader (kindergarten was not an option at the time) fill out her college applications, I see a young confident woman who continues to embody thinking critically, living ethically, and making a difference in this world. I will forever give to McGillis because I believe this school makes a difference in the lives of our future leaders.
