The accompanying report outlines the performance of the College’s endowment over the past year and some of the ways it has made an important difference in the lives of our students. Beyond the very specific uses of the income from these funds, the endowment is fundamental to the College’s ability to plan for the long term and to manage the ups and downs of the economy. It provides a steady and significant source of income to support our most critical operations, and is one of the reasons we continue to earn a solid A1 bond rating from Moody’s Investors Service.
We very much appreciate the faith you have shown in the College and its mission and hope you take great pride in what we have been able to accomplish with your support.
