Endowments: A Lasting Legacy

The LHPS Foundation comprises nine endowments that function as the school’s savings accounts, providing resources that ensure our long-term financial stability. Donors establish and fund endowments to create a legacy that provides permanent financial support for general operations, a specific area of interest, or need. A portion of endowment earnings is distributed to and spent by the school each year.
Help us provide lasting resources for current and future Highlanders by giving to the endowments listed below or by starting a new endowment.
