Endowment

Essential gifts supporting our students and faculty.

 

Endowment funds provide ongoing support for Holland Hall and our programs. Thanks to the generosity of numerous visionary donors over the school’s history, our robust endowment is dedicated to providing:

  • student scholarships and financial aid
  • faculty enrichment and professional development
  • program enhancement
  • operational and facilities support

Each year, a significant percentage of the income generated by the school’s endowment funds are used to attract students that would otherwise not be able to attend Holland Hall, providing a challenging and enriching experience for talented students, regardless of economic circumstances. Diverse perspectives and meaningful inquiry fuel academic excellence and promote personal growth. Enhancing diversity in the student body will require additional financial aid and increased outreach programs to identify and build relationships with the best and the brightest students in the region.

A strong endowment also helps attract and retain talented, dedicated teachers by providing professional development opportunities as well as the opportunity to become a recipient of a Master Teaching Chair. Investing in a well-trained, energized, and diverse faculty creates the soul of the education we provide to our students.
