Named Endowed Funds

Permanently endowed funds are a long-standing tradition at Hopkins, dating back to the 19th century. These monies, entrusted to Hopkins, provide annual support to critical areas of the School such as financial aid, faculty support and professional development, academics, the arts, athletics, and technology in perpetuity. In several instances, named funds have been created to honor revered faculty, coaches, staff members, alumni, parents of alumni, friends, and Heads of School. Classmates and alumni families have also established named funds to honor the memory of a Hopkins student, family member, or teacher. These are truly gifts from the heart that honor the institution as beneficiary and the individual in perpetuity. An expanded endowment is absolutely vital to the long-term financial health of this institution. Additions to these funds are most welcome at any time.
