Catlin Gabel's long-term health depends on the growth of the school's endowment, which secures a future that spans many generations.

An endowed fund can be in honor of someone, it can fund a particular interest such as financial aid or professional development, or it can be a general donation that goes toward the greatest needs of the school. Only the interest earned on the endowment is used operationally. The principal of Catlin Gabel's endowed funds will, in most cases, never be touched. We ask that you give a minimum of $50,000 to establish an endowment fund; additional gifts can be made after the initial gift.

For more information, please contact Nicole Rinetti-Clawson, Director of Advancement, at 503-297-1894 x5010 or rinetticlawsonn@catlin.edu.
