An endowment gift is maintained and invested in perpetuity and only a portion of the annual investment return on the principal gift is spent. Surplus earnings are reinvested in the endowment so that, over time, the fund can grow and provide the financial security necessary for long-term institutional health. In this economic environment particularly,endowment has never been more important. The need to build a significant endowment for Bentley’s future is as pressing as support for its current operations.
Interest earned on Bentley’s endowment is an important source of revenue and helps supplement tuition and annual fund gifts to support Bentley’s rich and varied curriculum. Gifts to Bentley's Unrestricted Endowment Fund are the most significant statement of confidence in the School’s leadership and allow the administration and trustees to respond to unanticipated opportunities and meet unexpected challenges.
For more information on contributing to an existing fund or establishing a permanently endowed fund, please contact Erin Jones, Director of Development, at ejones@bentleyschool.net or (925) 900-4085.
