Endowments are fundamental to achieving the mission of Carolina Friends School today, tomorrow, and for decades to come.
An endowment is a gift that is donated for the ongoing, annual support of CFS. The principal of the gift is invested and kept intact and a percentage of the fund’s value is expended for the endowment’s purpose every year. This allows for the donation to have an impact over a much longer period than if it were spent all at once.
