Facilities

Gifts to build, renovate, and restore facilities allow Haverford to keep pace with the changing needs of students and faculty.

The School has engaged in several major capital projects stemming from the School's 1993 Master Plan, including a pedestrian campus, the Field House and Sabol Field (2001), a new Lower School (2005), and the renovation of Wilson Hall along with a new Upper School (2008). The capstone of the plan will be a new Middle School that is pedagogically appropriate, safe and accessible, with flexible spaces that facilitate high-quality teaching and learning.

Endowment

Now at $77.8 million, Haverford’s endowment provides crucial support for our faculty, enhances school programs, and ensures access for remarkable boys, regardless of socioeconomic background.

How does endowment differ from The Haverford Fund?

The earnings on endowed funds are used in perpetuity to support Haverford’s programs and goals. Because the principal of the fund is never spent, it can generate greater earnings over time. The Haverford Fund income, by contrast, is spent the same year it is given and is used entirely to support the operating budget of the School.

Why create an endowed fund at Haverford?

Every donor has specific personal reasons for creating an endowed fund at Haverford. Whether it is to afford others the Haverford experience, to honor someone, or to provide support for a specific program, an endowed fund allows the donor to remain part of Haverford forever.

What are the kind of endowed funds I can set up?

Donors may set up a restricted endowed fund in which they designate endowment income for a certain purpose. Donors may also opt to create an unrestricted endowed fund, which leaves the spending of income at the discretion of the school. This is most beneficial, because it allows the Head of School and the Board of Trustees the flexibility to direct the income to the area of greatest need at Haverford. Donors may also choose to add to an existing endowed fund, either restricted or unrestricted.

What kind of stewardship do endowed funds receive?

The Haverford School actively manages more than 70 endowed funds, protecting the desires of donors and ensuring healthy growth of these assets. Haverford’s investment policy creates a growing stream of revenue, while protecting and producing funds for reinvestment. Donors receive yearly recognition in the ‘Gifts to the Endowment’ section of the Haverford School Annual Report, as well as a financial report.

How are endowed funds established?

Endowed funds can be established with outright gifts of cash or stock, through pledges to complete funding over several years, or through planned gifts. Families can also join resources to create an endowed fund, allowing their gifts to have a greater impact and creating unique multi-generational ties to the school. The minimum gift for establishing a new endowed fund is $100,000. There is no minimum gift for adding to an existing endowed fund.

Our world cries out for leaders and persons of character who have the courage to make good choices and decisions. That describes Haverford graduates. A Haverford education and experience has a powerful and enduring impact on all our community, which in turn can make a powerful difference in the lives of others and their communities.
