Endowment and Planned Giving
All endowments have a story to tell about the donors who created them, and those stories are an enduring part of The Summit’s history because of the permanence of an endowment.
The Summit Endowment in honor of Edward C. Tyrrell was created from invested gifts that provide stable, sustained revenue to support their intended purpose. These gifts are made possible through the generous investments of alumni, parents and friends as an impacting way to demonstrate their support and passion for The Summit.
Endowed funds are established to provide ongoing permanent support for designated funding recipients by use of interest earned on endowments, rather than at the expense of the funds themselves. These funds may be created for a variety of purposes, including faculty support, student scholarships, curriculum innovation building and grounds enhancement. Specific donation amounts are required to establish an endowed fund.
