Endowment is the financial foundation of all successful educational institutions. Income from endowment secures programs, provides faculty incentives, maintains facilities, funds need-based student financial aid, and enhances the educational experience beyond the provision of tuition.

An endowed fund generates income for its designated purpose or department according to the School’s investment policy established by the Board of Trustees. All endowed funds are accepted at the School’s discretion based on this policy. Recognizing the need to increase endowment for the security of Miami Country Day’s future, endowed funds have been established to address general operations, scholarship, faculty, buildings and programs. Donors who establish endowed funds will receive a copy of the school’s investment policy and the Annual Report.
