The Ensworth Fund

At Ensworth, we believe it is a community of parents, alumni, grandparents, and friends who are engaged and excited to support the mission of the school. The Ensworth Fund allows everyone the opportunity to contribute to the Ensworth experience each year.

Every gift to the Ensworth Fund fuels the moments that make up the Ensworth experience.

What is the Ensworth Fund?

The Ensworth Fund offers an opportunity for our entire community to come together in support of the School. It is the school’s number one fundraising priority – bridging the difference between tuition and the actual cost of educating each student accounting for 4-5% of the school’s operating budget.
This year, you may make a gift in honor of a specific area within the Ensworth Fund – offering you the opportunity to match your personal interests with Ensworth’s needs.
