The IDS Endowment was established in 1986 and has been funded periodically with individual gifts as well as Board-designated surplus funds. The purpose of the endowment is to provide financial support in critical areas such as tuition assistance, academics, the arts, athletics, technology, and faculty support and development.
IDS welcomes unrestricted and restricted gifts to the endowment. Giving to the IDS Endowment is investing in IDS’s future!
Unrestricted gifts to the IDS Endowment provide unrestricted support to the School’s operating budget.
Restricted gifts are designated for a specific purpose and provide annual support in that area. Current restricted funds at IDS include the Wallace Scholarship Fund, the IDS Centers of Excellence Fund, and the IDS Community Scholarship Fund.
IDS is happy to speak with you about naming opportunities for new endowed funds. We welcome pledges to the IDS Endowment, with payments made over time, and planned giving, with donations to the endowment included in your will. If you would like to support IDS in a specific way, please contact Laura Jalinskas at 860-740-4026 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
