Our endowment provides for St. George’s Independent School’s financial future. Our endowments has a current value in excess of $3 million.
The first gift to the endowment was given by Barclay McFadden around 1984. Countless philanthropic leaders like Bill Dunavant III, Anonymous Donors and others have made generous gifts and added to the school’s endowment since then. Most recently, Beth and David Skudder have provided the school’s new campaign’s leadership gift.
The St. George’s Independent School endowment portfolio is professionally managed by a local Memphis company, Diversified Trust, under the direction of proven financial and investment professionals; who also serve as volunteers and members of our Investment Committee of the Board of Trustees. Interest and income generated by the endowment support key mission based programs like professional development, campus preservation, innovative academic programs, scholarships and financial aid, bring inspiring speakers to campus, and more. Committed friends of St. George’s can make a gift to the school’s endowment at any time. Such gifts can be added to the unrestricted endowment or donors can set up special accounts to fund his or her passions and interests within the endowment. Donors may work with the school to create endowed funds to create new programs or to sustain proven programs. Endowment performance is reported to donors quarterly, annually and over time. Join other endowment donors and see how a generous gift’s impact can grow overtime.
Proceeds from resources donors leave to the school in his or her estates as members of the school’s Clanlo Society will be deposited into the Schools’ general endowment or named endowed accounts.
