The Endowment

Our endowment is an investment in the future, ensuring we can pursue our essential mission in perpetuity. A strong endowment gives us confidence to plan and make strategic long-term decisions on a foundation of financial security.

Today, Blair’s endowment stands at $85,406,277 million, as of August 29, 2016—impressive when you consider it totaled just $12 million in 1988. Yet, the reality is that Blair was a latecomer to endowment-building: This means Blair relies more heavily on tuition to meet everyday needs than other schools.

Specifically, we seek to increase scholarship aid for students and salary support and academic enrichment for the faculty. In building Blair’s endowment, we invest in the School’s most valuable resources—its students and teachers.
