Major gifts made by individuals and foundations have an immediate and profound impact on all who walk the halls of Whitfield, and continue to impact our students, our alumni and our faculty for years to come. As a school and as a community we are stronger because of the generosity of so many.
Whitfield continues to seek funding for the three initiatives below, identified through The Campaign for Whitfield. Of course, many other needs exist including support for: maintaining our buildings and grounds, capital improvements, academic and extracurricular programs. We welcome an opportunity to learn about your areas of greatest interest and develop a plan to align your passions with Whitfield’s needs.
Spend Down Fund
Major gifts to Whitfield can be structured in two primary ways. In spend down funds, the gift principal is wholly available to support the project or program as intended. Most often, the gift is divided to support the project or program over several years.
Endowment funds provide stable, perennial financial support. Whitfield is glad to invest your major gift into our permanently restricted endowment. You may choose to add your support to an existing endowment fund, or, in collaboration with school leadership, establish a new endowment fund for a project or program. Endowments are designed to keep the principal corpus intact so it can grow over time, but allow Whitfield to use the annual investment income for programs, or operations, or purposes specified by the donor(s).
