What is an Endowment?

An endowment is usually a fund which is established to provide an income for the beneficiary. The fund is generally invested for life that is called in ‘perpetuity’, which means there is no time limit, it’s permanent. Only the income, (money earned) is distributed, not the original principal.

Growing our School and Our People

Making an Endowment gift will help us grow our school by providing additional permanent resources on an annual basis. The funds will significantly improve the quality of support we can give our students and teachers and will enhance the school’s future financial well-being.

Gifts to the Endowment Fund are invested by trustees of the Rudolf Steiner School Trust and the income generated supports the Trust’s Special Character Enhancement Fund. Gifts may also be assigned to designated Special Funds.
