An endowment gift is a permanent source of income for Holy Comforter Episcopal School as it is the gift that keeps on giving. Endowment funds are invested to earn annual interest rather than spent immediately. Currently, Holy Comforter is re-investing all of the earnings that these gifts generate until a larger endowment principle is established. Once that occurs, a percentage of the annual earnings will be used for tuition assistance and faculty advancement. The rest of the earnings will be reallocated back into the fund’s principle to insure that the endowment continues to grow and yield more interest for future scholarships and support.
Holy Comforter welcomes contributions and/or pledges of any amount to our general endowment fund. Named or designated funds may be established for any reason for any approved purpose with a gift of $25,000 or more. A named endowment fund can be created in your own name or in the name of a parent, spouse, teacher, friend or other loved one. You can do this at any point in your life using cash, securities or real estate, or you can arrange for the fund to be established through an irrevocable planned gift or a bequest in your will.
A strong endowment will enable Holy Comforter to better serve our community, knowing that permanent resources are available for tuition assistance, faculty advancement and new initiatives. By contributing to or establishing a named endowment fund, you can make a permanent gift to HCES that will continue to benefit our students in perpetuity.
If you are interested in contributing to the HCES Endowment Fund or creating a new one, please contact our Director of Institutional Advancement Holly Wilbourn at 850-383-1007 or email her by clicking here.
