Endowment funds are financial assets that generate a consistent source of income through effective investment of the principal. Portions of this income are used to relieve the operating budget, and, when substantial enough, to help minimize tuition increases.

Endowment funds are frequently established to honor or remember someone of significance to the school. We are especially grateful to those donors who have established the endowment funds that provide security for our future.

Please see below for a list of Chadwick's existing endowment funds. Those interested in contributing to a current fund, or establishing a new fund can contact Kerry Toolan, Executive Director of Development and Alumni Affairs, at (310) 377-1543, ext. 4018.
