Endowment funds are permanent funds invested to provide income for St. John's long-term stability and strength. By making an endowed gift, you leave a lasting legacy and demonstrate an important commitment to the current and future needs of our school.
The St. John's Teacher Endowment Fund was established in 1995 to provide the school with a continuing source of income for teacher salaries and benefits.
Making a donation to the Teacher Endowment Fund in honor of any wonderful past or present teachers at St. John's, is a gift for teaching. It not only shows our gratitude for the impact teachers have on students' lives, it continues their legacy, ensuring that for years to come, students will experience the wealth of benefits derived from educators who have a gift for teaching.
Financial and Special Purpose Endowment Funds
Dorothy Patterson Memorial Scholarship Fund
The Dorothy Patterson Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in 1981 by Mr. and Mrs. Jim Cook in memory of Dorothy Patterson, the original first grade teacher at St. John's. The fund was created to provide financial assistance to students who would not otherwise be able to receive an independent school education and to families faced with unexpected hard times.
Head's Discretionary Scholarship Fund
The Head's Discretionary Scholarship Fund was created by the Class of 2002 with a challenge for all future graduating classes to donate to this fund. The fund was created to allow a student to continue his or her education at St. John's if the family encounters unforeseen financial circumstances.
St. John's Diversity Endowment Fund
The Diversity Fund was created to provide financial aid to and increase the population of students from diverse backgrounds.
St. John's Student Library Endowment
