2005-06: Endowments and Funds

The endowment of The Putney School is built through gifts to a variety of funds, many of which have been named in memory of a valued member of the school community. Others ensure the availability of funds for a specified purpose, such as financial aid, land use, music program, or director's discretionary funds. We are grateful for newly created named funds and thank those who have contributed to the continuing strength of existing funds. Gifts and bequests to the Endowment support the operating budget of the school through an annual 4 percent draw-down.
