A strong endowment allows Masters to defray the rising costs of energy and improvements to our 96-acre physical plant, thereby reducing reliance on tuition increases. It allows the School to address the additional costs projected to operate and staff the MAAC, Estherwood Mansion, and other buildings.
The Masters School’s 96-acre campus has over fifteen buildings, five athletic fields, tennis courts, and acres of managed lawns. Several of our buildings are on the National Register of Historic Places. Maintaining the exteriors and interiors of our wonderful buildings is paramount to a healthy and safe campus. Estherwood Mansion, for example, needs regular and necessary work to be preserved and accessible. With the addition of new and improved buildings come new costs. The MAAC will be an energy efficient and technology advanced facility, but will increase overall carrying costs for the school. Endowments to help offset these expenditures will help the school keep tuition increases lower.
Endowments in support of the Masters campus may include funds for the preservation of Estherwood, maintenance of our athletic fields, campus landscaping and beautification, and the FC building endowment.
