Ensuring Renbrook's Future

Renbrook's endowed funds are more than just numbers and stock portfolios. These endowed gifts ultimately affect people. Endowment helps to ensure that students enjoy programs in leading-edge technology, the sciences, the arts and athletics.

Endowment also supports financial aid, helping great kids attend Renbrook who otherwise wouldn't be able to - strengthening our community with socio-economic diversity.

In order to ensure Renbrook's future and guarantee the continued excellence in education this institution provides, gifts to endowment are essential. These gifts make sure that what Renbrook has provided in the past to so many supportive alumni, past parents, former faculty and friends will be given to the many deserving children of the future.
