How an Endowment Fund Works at Cobb

The beauty of endowment is that it is forever. Gifts made to the Mary Lou Cobb Faculty Endowment Fund will serve children and families who are with us today and into the future. These gifts will grow and provide a steady and predictable source of income for The Cobb School, Montessori to live out its mission: Believe ~ Guide ~ Step Aside ~ Let Fly

  1. An endowment fund is initially established with a major gift from a generous donor
    or group of donors.
  2. Through prudent fiscal management by the Board of Trustees, the endowment fund grows and produces an income stream for the school.
  3. The principal is held and invested in perpetuity. It provides flexibility to meet our school’s immediate needs and ensures assets are preserved to support our mission.

The Cobb School is a non-profit, 501(3)c organization and all of your donations are tax deductible to the extent provided by law. Gifts of cash or stocks are welcome, and we will be glad to discuss extended payment and planned giving options with you. Please forward Matching Gift Paperwork to the Director of Advancement and we will do the rest.
