CRMS Endowment

The CRMS Endowment funds opportunities for current and future generations.

The CRMS endowment fuels our scholarship programs and enables us to recruit the most talented students to campus, regardless of their ability to pay.

CRMS Endowment

The endowment is a diversified investment portfolio resulting from historic gifts, new gifts made by donors, and capital appreciation on those gifts over time. The endowment provides a reliable and perpetual source of income to the school’s operating budget.  

The endowment makes it possible for: 

  • Students, regardless of their economic background, to afford and attend CRMS and go on to live lives of leadership and service in industries and countries around the world
  • Faculty to receive the support and professional development opportunities to keep their teaching relevant and inspiring
  • Students to be challenged and grow through unique sports, arts, and outdoor programs

The endowment is one of four major sources of income for the school. A percentage of the endowment's earnings is withdrawn annually to support scholarships, endowed faculty, and related operations and initiatives.

Why Give to the Endowment

With an endowment gift, you truly keep giving. Endowment gifts extend your philanthropic partnership with CRMS to sustain your annual support in perpetuity. They can also provide a lasting tribute that honors family members and friends.

Despite the success of the endowment to date, CRMS still needs to increase the size of its endowment to stay competitive, provide new opportunities and strengthen its position as a leader in high school education. A larger endowment would also reduce the school’s dependence on current-use gifts and tuition, providing more financial stability each year.
