Does Skutt Catholic have an endowment?
Skutt Catholic has an established endowment fund, as well as several endowed scholarships. Each of these were created for a specific purpose and includes gifts and bequests that are generally designed to keep the principal corpus intact so it can grow over time, but allow the school to use the annual investment income for programs, or operations, or purposes specified by the donor(s) to the endowment.
What is an endowed scholarship?
An endowed scholarship is an endowment established to fund tuition and other school related expenses. Over the years, Skutt Catholic has been blessed with generous donors who have established endowed scholarships to provide financial tuition assistance to qualifying families, and as a very special legacy to a beloved alum who has passed on.
What are the benefits of an endowed scholarship?
An endowed scholarship offers several benefits to the donating individuals or organization:
