One of the hallmarks of an outstanding school is the size and impact of its endowment. Endowment funds are distributed to the school, in perpetuity, income, and realized capital gains that assist in reaching strategic goals and long-term improvements. There is no invasion of the principal, and funds are used in accordance with the guidelines put in place when established.
Currently, the Mariners Christian School Endowment is valued at over $800,000. The primary initiatives funded by the Endowment at this time are our professional development, financial sponsorship for faculty to continue their education including doctoral and Master’s degrees, and financial aid (scholarships awarded to families based on needs for short-term, emergency aid).
