Capital gifts help the School accomplish brick-and-mortar projects and other initiatives that are not part of the funding provided by the Annual Fund. Capital gifts are raised over a number of years through a capital campaign to help the School fulfill its long-term objectives, such as building a new facility, renovating classrooms, or purchasing technology for a 21st century education.
Derryfield’s endowment is a symbol of financial stability, and functions as the “savings account” for the School. The endowment demonstrates the School’s commitment to future generations of students, and the loyalty of the School’s constituents. Money placed in the endowment is available in perpetuity, with a set percentage of the interest from the endowment being used each year to offset the School’s operating budget, as well as financial aid and scholarships.
