The Trinity Valley School Endowment Fund provides ongoing, yearly support. The impact of the Endowment Fund is powerful, and its continued growth is critical to the long-term sustainability of Trinity Valley School.
Gifts to the Endowment Fund and gifts to the Annual Giving Campaign both help limit our dependence on tuition. Up to 5 percent of the three-year, rolling average of the Endowment Fund is contributed to the annual operating budget, thus helping to bridge the gap between tuition income and the actual expense of a Trinity Valley School education. The Endowment Fund is also comprised of gifts designated by the donor to provide for financial aid and programs and to support teaching chairs, departments, and administrative positions.
Gifts to Endowment are invested in the Trinity Valley School General Endowment Fund or an endowment fund designated for a specific purpose. Endowment gifts are, by definition, restricted. The gift may not be spent - only the interest income is available for spending.
The Trinity Valley School Endowment Fund began in 1982 with a generous gift from the Amon G. Carter Foundation. The Endowment Fund has grown to its current value of more than $25 million through continued gifts as well as market growth.
