An endowment is considered an indicator of the financial health of an institution. We are pleased to honor the generosity of donors to the endowment fund. The Development Office shares the status of the Bush endowment with donors, and the fund(s) they contributed. Each year, benefactors receive a financial report as well as a story, an experience or project related to their fund.
The endowment is held, managed, and invested under the direction of the Board of Trustees of the School. In 2020, the Board invested 20% of the Endowment, currently about $6 million, in ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) funds. This move represents an alignment of the School’s values with the fund investments. Total spending of the funds for any given fiscal year will be capped at five percent (5%) of the average market value of the funds, unless otherwise approved by the Board of Trustees based on a recommendation of the Finance Committee of the Board.
