The Endowment supports educational initiatives that require ongoing funding or larger sums that cannot be supported by the annual Teacher Grant Program. A stable, permanent source of income will allow The Foundation to support long-term, district-wide needs and visionary programming. The Endowment is managed by a professional investment firm in accordance with strict investment principles identified in The Foundation’s By-Laws. A financial committee meets regularly to monitor the investment portfolio.
