Endowed Funds

ways to give (web)Endowed funds express confidence in Foxcroft Academy’s future. These permanent funds are invested wisely, and a portion of the income generated is used to provide opportunities in areas such as faculty and program enrichment, scholarships for students, advancement of technology, and campus enhancement.

For example, in appreciation of the dedication and work of the faculty, and the positive educational experience they provide to Foxcroft students, alumni and parents could create a permanent expression of their gratitude by establishing an endowed fund to support faculty. In 2006, the family of former Head of School Howard Ryder created the “Howard F. Ryder Endowed Fellowship for Advanced Study” to assist faculty members in pursuing advanced studies.

As the list of funds below indicate, a variety of opportunities and interests can be accommodated by contacting Cathy Hall in the Alumni/Advancement Office at 207-564-6542 or cathy.hall@foxcroftacademy.org.
