Above and beyond Breck’s need for yearly operating support is our need for the school’s long-term financial health and sustainability. Breck’s Endowment Fund is the school’s investment or savings account. It is made up of gifts from generous donors and of investment growth and earnings. Donor contributions are carefully invested and managed according to policies set by the Investment Committee of the Board of Trustees. Since tuition alone does not cover the full cost of a Breck education, the school relies on a prudent draw from the endowment each year, in addition to other fund-raising activities. In addition, there are funds within Breck's endowment designated by donors for specific purposes.
Donors may make a gift of any size to one of Breck's Endowment funds, or they may elect to established a named endowment fund. A Named Endowed Fund that supports priorities of Breck School may be created with a donation of $250,000 or more. The following are Endowment Naming Opportunities:
- Financial Aid Endowment Fund: Provides tuition assistance for eligible students.
- Program Endowment Fund: Provides resources which underwrite a specific program or academic area.
- Professional Development Endowment Fund: Provides funds for faculty and staff to attend special courses, workshops, conferences, seminars and other learning opportunities to enhance their knowledge and effectiveness.
