A robust endowment contributes to Lowell's financial stability and is one of the important indicators of its long term success.
Income from the endowment contributes a stream of revenue to enhance the program and take pressure off of tuition increases by supporting teacher salaries, financial assistance, staff development, or whatever is needed most. Gifts to the Endowment are always welcomed and can be made in honor, in memory, and/or in celebration of an individual or group.
Lowell recognizes that a named fund is a meaningful way to say thank you to a great teacher or to someone in the donor's family who has been an inspiration. The minimum gift for a named fund in the Endowment is $25,000. See our Gift Acceptance Guidelines for more information.
The most helpful gifts are those with the fewest restrictions. However, Lowell recognizes that donors may wish to restrict the use of a gift for a specific purpose that is not part of an existing fund. See our Gift Acceptance Guidelines for more information.
