Tribute & Endowed Gifts

 

Tribute Gifts

Canterbury School is always honored to receive thoughtful gifts in honor of loved ones and friends. Throughout the years, these special gifts have enhanced our libraries and fine arts programs, contributed to the unrestricted area of the school's endowment, or helped wherever the need is greatest. Please let us know to what program we should direct your gift.

Endowed Gifts

Each year, donors provide endowment gifts to help secure Canterbury’s financial future while endowing a favorite program or honoring a loved one's memory. The principal of each endowed gift is preserved while its earnings provide annual support and moderate the pressure on tuition in future years.
