An Independent, Coed Junior Boarding (5-9) and Day School (K-9) in Washington, CT

Endowment

Rumsey's Endowment continues to grow and today is funded with $14.3 million to ensure the School's strong and secure foundation. Gifts to the Endowment are held in perpetuity and invested. A portion of this investment income is designated to directly fuel initiatives and innovations in student programs. This source of enrichment funding is focused on fortifying the School’s highest needs and priorities as determined by the Endowment Advisory Committee.



THE ENDOWMENT DELIVERS

In 2016-17 the Enrichment Fund enabled:
• A new Innovation Workspace (formerly the RT3)
• Investment in Lower School Technology / Chromebooks
• Foreign Language Projector
• Guest Speakers / Performances / Workshops / Weekend Programs


ENDOWMENT CHALLENGE MATCH:
$1 MILLION RAISED / $1 MILLION MATCHED

In the Fall of 2015, Trustee Adrienne and Dan Lufkin P '12, '20, '24 committed a significant Endowment Challenge to the community. The goal was simple—to inspire $1 million in new gifts by matching each Endowment contribution dollar for dollar. The resulting $2 million goal was met on June 30, 2016. Thank you to all who contributed to the success of this campaign.
