Giving Priorities


The endowment at Ransom Everglades School ensures the school’s long-term financial sustainability and advances its mission. The endowment is composed of gifts and bequests, with the principal kept intact in perpetuity and invested to create a growing source of income. The endowment grows through additional gifts, income and capital appreciation.
Gifts to support endowments provide RE with resources to support financial aid; maintain its campuses by the bay; and attract, retain and support the finest faculty.

Support RE with an endowment gift

List of 3 items.

  • Unrestricted

    Unrestricted endowments contribute to the school’s annual budget, providing a source of support for school operations. Gifts that are unrestricted afford Ransom Everglades flexibility in meeting the current and future needs of the school as they arise.
  • Financial Aid

    The financial aid program at Ransom Everglades provides students who otherwise could not attend RE the extraordinary benefits of a Ransom Everglades education. 
    A strong financial aid program goes beyond making an RE education possible for many students; it also enhances the educational experience for the entire student body. Diversity of background, experience and perspective enriches our entire school community. 
    You can transform a student’s life by creating a fund for student financial aid for current use or by establishing an endowed fund that will be invested by the school and generate financial aid funding in perpetuity.
  • Faculty Support

    To recruit, hire and retain exceptional educators, Ransom Everglades is making faculty support endowments a priority. Ransom Everglades aims to expand the endowment in part to support powerful professional and curricular development.
    Gifts in support of faculty can be added to existing endowments, such as the Dan Leslie Bowden Endowment in the Humanities, or used to create new fully endowed positions within the school.
Founded in 1903, Ransom Everglades School is a coeducational, college preparatory day school for grades 6 - 12 located on two campuses in Coconut Grove, Florida.
