Endowment Funds

A gift to the OLSH endowment is a gift that keeps on giving. An endowed gift is invested in a way that protects the original amount (the principal) from inflation, allowing the gift to exist in perpetuity. The income derived from the investment can provide a stable and somewhat predictable source of funding for academic programs and tuition assistance. The larger the endowment, the more income OLSH will have to support our various programs.

With a gift to the OLSH endowment, you are helping to support the education of a future generation of young men and women. As the endowment grows and becomes a dependable income stream, OLSH no longer has to depend solely on tuition to provide for its substantial financial requirements. These gifts are critical to the future of OLSH. OLSH is committed to building a strong endowment in order to continue to deliver greater value and attain higher levels of quality than would otherwise be possible.

Named Scholarship Funds in the OLSH Endowment

OLSH provides the opportunity to remember or honor a person or family by establishing an endowed fund in their name(s). A Named Endowed Scholarship is an ideal way to honor a person not only at the time it is created, but also far into the future, as these scholarships last in perpetuity because only the interest is used to support the scholarship while the principal continuously grows. There is a minimum amount required to initiate such a fund, or the named fund can be created later with a will bequest or other planned gift.
