Endowment Giving

Every year we strive to grow our Endowment Funds as a long-term strategy, and have enjoyed good success in this regard in recent years with the help of our very generous donors. The School's General Endowment consists of a number of invested funds which operate in perpetuity. The preservation of capital in our endowed funds is the responsibility of the St. George's School Foundation Trustees. The interest earned on these funds is disbursed primarily in support of financial aid for deserving boys, as well as to support a variety of programs at the School.
