Endowment Gifts 

Every day our community reaps the benefits of endowed gifts, whether they were given five or 150 years ago. Indeed one of the Academy's first endowed gifts, the John L. Sibley 1819 Charity Fund, was established in 1862 and continues to support financial aid students today. In the same way, each of the Academy's nearly 1,400 endowed funds serves as an enduring source of strength the donor's area of interest.
