A guiding principle of good stewardship of the Priory is financial sustainability. Priory's future is insured by its endowmentthe key to the innovation and flexibility that the 21st century will require. Endowment is invested money from which the school draws each year, at a rate designed to preserve capital and to supplement the operating income provided by tuition and gifts to the Annual Fund.

The income provided by endowment means:
  • Diversity in the program we offer our students
  • Competitive compensation for outstanding faculty
  • Financial aid for qualified students
  • Support for campus maintenance and renewal
  • Financial stability in changing times and flexibility to respond to new opportunities
In short, a strong endowment equals choices for the future.

Class Legacy Fund

Each year parents of the senior class are invited to establish a Class Legacy Fund in honor of their Priory experience. A portion of senior parent Annual Fund gifts will be used to set up their own class endowment. This year we are asking parents to establish The Class of 2017 Legacy Fund. It will grow each year as gifts are added and the interest earned will be a permanent source of support for Financial Aid. Every year after graduation alumni parents Annual Fund gift will be designated to their class endowment. This ensures that each new generation of Panthers may reach beyond their grasp to achieve their dreams.

Priory alumni will be asked to join their parents in supporting their Class Legacy Fund at their 5 year reunions. Together with their parents, and in the spirit of the Priory, alumni will be creating a legacy for future generations.

Named Endowment Funds

The Priory Endowment is comprised of numerous named endowment funds, many of which are established to honor family members and friends.

A minimum $50,000 gift is required to start a named endowment fund. Smaller gifts are of course welcomed and will be added to an appropriate, previously established endowment fund.

If you are interested in establishing an endowment fund or contributing to an existing fund, please contact the Advancement Office at (650) 851-6139, or email Suzanne Couch at scouch@prioryca.org.
