Investing in the Future

For more than 40 years, friends of Falmouth Academy have invested in the long-term success of the school by making gifts of endowment. Endowment funds are permanently restricted monies that are carefully invested for the long-term, the approved “draw” from which is used each year to support specific purposes as determined by the donor.

Falmouth Academy’s endowed funds have been established to support general purposes, financial aid, and faculty development. Named funds within these categories are approved by the Board of Trustees and may be established at Falmouth Academy with a minimum gift (or combined gifts) of $100,000. 
If you have questions or would like to make a pledge, a gift of securities, set up Monthly Giving, or wish to include Falmouth Academy in your estate plans, please contact the Development Office at 508-457-9696 or email
