Blair's Financial Strength
GOAL: Secure Blair’s financial foundation to provide the resources that will sustain our School now and in the future.
A strong endowment provides security for the future, a buffer against periodic economic downturns, and the flexibility to create and to respond to opportunities as they arise. We must continue to grow endowed funds so that we may more fully invest in our students, teachers, innovative programs and historic campus.
As we build our endowment for generations to come, we must also strengthen annual giving to the Blair Fund. Blair Fund gifts are critical to the School’s operation and enhance the Blair experience for today’s students and teachers by supporting financial aid, extracurricular activities, service and leadership opportunities, and many more everyday needs.
Grow endowed scholarship support so that we can continue to bring a diverse, talented student body to Blair by offering generous and necessary financial aid.
Expand endowed support for programs and activities across the entire spectrum of Blair’s curricular and extracurricular program to ensure that both new and long-standing meaningful experiences are fully supported and available to every student.
Grow endowed support for facilities to provide for maintenance, technological upgrades, and preservation of our campus and its new and historic buildings.
Increase support of the Blair Fund to $3 million annually to fund critical needs.
Embark upon a comprehensive seven-year fundraising campaign.
In order to achieve the vital objectives of our 2018-2025 Strategic Plan, Blair will embark upon a comprehensive fundraising campaign. Together, as alumni, parents and friends of the School, we can ensure that the Blair experience is even more enriching and impactful for generations of students and that our School is stronger than ever as we approach our 175th anniversary.
