To meet the current and future needs of the students and Blue Oak School community, we must grow our endowment.  Independent schools, like BOS, rely on three primary sources of revenue: tuition, the annual fund/event and an endowment.  

What is an endowment?

  • An endowment is a permanent fund that is invested and generates interest or dividend income annually.
  • A portion of the income is spent each year with the remainder being reinvested in order to achieve growth of the principal.

Blue Oak School General Endowment

Gifts to the general endowment provide the school with the greatest flexibility.   Blue Oak School is able to spend the income from the endowment to meet the greatest needs of the school.

Named Endowment Funds

Named endowments can be established through a gift of $100,000 and more for:


  • Nuestro Futuro/Financial Aid
  • Faculty Support
  • Program Support/Innovation
  • Athletics
  • Performing Arts
  • Technology
