Endowment & Special Gifts

The Burroughs endowment was established in the 1970s. Investment income from our endowment is the largest source of school revenue after tuition and Annual Giving. Devoted and generous alumni, parents, and friends have established endowed funds to provide a permanent income to Burroughs. These donors sustain the Burroughs experience through gifts that last forever. Under professional management, these funds support immediate and long-term goals. As of June 30, 2021, the market value of the school's endowment and other managed funds was $62 million.

A gift of endowment ensures that Burroughs has the resources required for a second century of service and learning. As we prepare for the school’s Centennial in 2023, one of our major strategic goals is to substantially grow the endowment to control tuition increases, support our enduring commitment to tuition aid, and ensure staff salaries and professional development are competitive. As a donor of endowed funds, you:

  • Provide a permanent place for your extended family to direct their gifts to Burroughs.
  • Celebrate your family, a loved one, or a favorite faculty member by naming your fund.
  • Secure permanent funding for Burroughs because the principal of your endowed fund is invested and untouched in perpetuity. Your gift lasts forever.
  • Connect with the beneficiaries of your generosity through personalized reports that will give you the satisfaction of knowing how your funds impact the school.
  • Consider a bequest to the Burroughs endowment to support what matters most to you.

A belief in education is a belief in the future. Gifts of endowment honor the thousands of remarkable people who have taught and learned on the Burroughs campus. The curious, kind, competitive, and talented people who help one another, love one another and grow-up together.
