Gifts of Endowment

A thriving endowment is essential to the future of Stone Ridge. While the endowment is healthy, it is still not adequate to meet the annual needs of our students. It is imperative that we grow and nurture the endowment to ensure that Stone Ridge’s potential for educating the whole child is never limited by lack of resources.

A strong endowment provides a consistent and stable revenue source that:

  • Makes possible a top-tier faculty that will generate excellence in the classroom and beyond;
  • Delivers educational programs that redefine how students learn and faculty teach;
  • Fulfills the goal of access to a Sacred Heart education for all qualified students;
  • Makes state-of-the art tools available to students, faculty, and staff in the pursuit of learning and;
  • Ensures that Stone Ridge will always deliver on the promise to educate the whole child

Gifts of any size can be applied to the general endowment and allow the most flexibility to meet current needs. To establish a specific endowed fund, a minimum gift is required.
