Together, the St. Thomas Episcopal Parish Church and School Endowment is future-focused. As with most private institutions that aspire to excellence, a strong endowment at St. Thomas is fundamental to meeting the future demands of spiritually supporting our families, ministries, and excellence in education by solidifying our long-term financial sustainability. The Endowment is like an investment account that produces dividends or interest, relieving pressure and reliance on tuition, annual giving, and other fundraisers.
Two significant funds together make up the St. Thomas Endowment. The St. Thomas Episcopal Parish School Endowment Fund helps strengthen our five critical operating areas: faculty development, new educational programs, special one-time student projects, financial assistance, and capital improvements. The St. Thomas Episcopal Parish Church Endowment Fund strengthens the Church’s outreach, scholarships, or grants to members of the Parish for attending the Parish School, college, seminary, graduate school, or conferences for growth in the Christian faith, community outreach special projects, and capital improvements. Together the funds make up the St. Thomas Episcopal Parish Church and School Endowment, serving as a permanent asset that generates annual income to support the overall mission of St. Thomas.
