The growth of The Hillside School endowment is one of the school’s highest priorities. With a larger endowment, The Hillside School has greater flexibility and ability to respond to economic cycles and has additional resources to attract and retain the best teachers. Endowment funds support scholarship, professional development, academic programming, facilities, and various other needs that fall within the mission of advancing The Hillside School. All endowed funds are awarded in perpetuity.
Growing endowment is also a practical matter. Because of the size of our student population and our low student-faculty ratio and because of the gap between the costs of this excellent, highly individualized education and families’ ability to pay, net tuition revenues account for approximately 80 percent of the cost of a Hillside School education. In order to improve our quality initiative, our endowment income must continue to grow.
Endowed funds may be established with a minimum gift of $20,000, given at once or over a period of time. The following are a list of The Hillside School endowed funds.
