Mayfield Senior School’s endowment funds provide long-term resources to support the school—the annual interest income helps underwrite the cost of running the school from year to year and, with smart investment management, the principal grows to secure Mayfield’s future as a school for young women in the Holy Child tradition. The Board of Trustees actively manages our endowed funds to ensure healthy growth of the overall assets and to fulfill the intentions of our donors.
Endowments also help Mayfield to invest in and maintain student programs, faculty development and facilities that “meet the wants of the age,” in the spirit of Cornelia Connelly. And, endowments are vital to our ability to offer financial aid to students who would otherwise not be able to attend Mayfield.
Today, Mayfield Senior School's endowment stands at $10.3 million, and we are working to increase our base of endowed gifts in order to sustain the school's economic security.
