An Endowment Fund is a fund that is donated permanently to an institution in order to fund a particular academic or educational purpose.
St. Saviour’s School Ebute Metta celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2011. The School wants to continue to maintain its International Standard and deliver exceptional quality education for the next 60 years and beyond.
To further these aims, the Board of Trustees decided to establish an Endowment Fund for the school. This means protecting what is great about St. Saviour’s; improving on what isn’t and ensuring that that our children can compete effectively, locally and internationally, and be proud to say that they went to St. Saviour’s School Ebute Metta.
The School needs your support to make this desire achievable. We are looking for parents, aunties, uncles, grandparents and alumni members willing to pledge gifts and or cash donations to enhance the Fund. We have agreed to give ourselves a period of 5 years to raise funds for the Endowment Fund.
The first fundraising exercise was the extremely successful Walk-a-Thon which took place on the 24th of March 2018. It was an initiative of parents in the school and organized in conjunction with the PTA. This event raised a substantial amount of money, which was used to kick-start the fund. The Walk-a-Thon is intended to continue as an annual event. We hope that you will join us and build on this rich heritage for our children.
The Board of Trustees has appointed an Endowment Fund Committee to advise and monitor the operations of the St. Saviour’s School Ebute Metta Endowment Fund. The Committee has developed a governance structure, which has been approved by the Board of Trustees.
The goals and fund objectives are:
• For funding of capital projects and infrastructure
• To fund exceptional non-basic costs
• To improve the quality of education offered by the School
