Help to Grow the Endowment Fund

Third graders reading in Washington Park for their annual Readathon in partnership with the South Carolina Aquarium and MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital.

The Charleston Day School Board of Trustees established a general endowment fund in the 1970’s with a seed gift of $1,200. Today, the fund is valued at $2.8 million. At its current level, the endowment generates approximately 1% of the annual operating budget. While this is a good start, the total endowment of $2.8 million dollars is far below the average $7 million endowment for a school of comparable size. We know that with a stronger endowment and enhanced financial aid offerings, the School will be well positioned to educate generations of Charleston-area children true to the mission of scholarship, integrity, respect and responsibility. In 2014, the School began a strategic fundraising effort to grow the endowment. Gifts of any size can help enhance our endowment.
