Named Endowed Funds
A named endowed fund is a gift established in perpetuity, with endowment income used every year to provide support for a particular purpose agreed upon by the donor and the school. These funds support all areas of school life, ranging from faculty support, curricula development, to maintaining the school’s historic campus. In addition, 26.5 percent of the student body at Concord Academy is receiving financial aid during the 2019–20 school year. Aid packages at CA are about more than access; rather, these funds provide students with everything they might need, beyond room and board, and covering all aspects of school life — such as the cost of books and going to the movies — to ensure all students have the same opportunities.
Concord Academy is grateful for these funds, which ensure long-term financial equilibrium and represent lasting tributes to faculty, staff, alumnae/i, parents, and friends.
The school welcomes the creation of new funds or additional gifts to any of the funds listed here. If you would like more information, please contact Christine Flashner, director of development, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (978) 402-2262.
