Endowments & Teaching Chairs

Endowment funds provide ongoing support for Kent Denver School and our programs. As of June 30, 2023, our 120 endowment funds totaled $68.5 million thanks to the generosity of numerous visionary donors over the school’s history.

Approximately $37 million of our endowment is dedicated to faculty support, scholarships or specific programs. Each year, a significant percentage of the income generated by the school’s endowment funds is used to support the school’s operations. Remaining earnings are reinvested into the endowment to ensure Kent Denver's continued growth and financial strength.

Many named endowment funds and teaching chairs receive ongoing contributions from the Kent Denver community, but we are always happy to discuss establishing new endowment funds.

For information on establishing a new endowment fund or contributing to an existing fund, please contact Phil Klein, Director of Development, at (303) 770-7660 ext. 526 or pklein@kentdenver.org.
