Capital & Endowment Giving
In addition to its annual giving programs, the Academy also seeks and receives gifts in support of specific capital projects, as well as gifts that help build its endowed funds. The Academy's endowment (approximately $46 million at June 30, 2014) is like a family's savings account. These funds are invested conservatively and annual income from the portfolio supports the operating budget.
The Southworth Society was created to recognize individuals who include Thayer Academy in their estate plan. These gifts range from simple bequests to planned gifts, structured according to the donor's individual needs and made during their lifetime, so they can see the benefits of their generosity to the Academy.
