The Kettle Moraine Lutheran High School Foundation, Inc. has been
established to invest and preserve your gifts for perpetual support of
the people and programs of KML. As a unique and separate organization,
the Foundation Board of Directors annually uses the growth of the funds
to assist families and advance the mission and vision programs of its
high school. Your gift to the KML Foundation, Inc. shows a long term
commitment to Christian education for generations to come. More
information about the foundation is available at foundation.kmlhs.org.
The KMLHS Foundation manages endowment funds for the purpose of providing tuition assistance for KML students.
What is an endowment?
An endowment works as a
nest egg for the future of the institution. Gifts to the endowment are
invested, rather than spent. Then, a percentage of the income growth
from the investment is used to support a specific purpose. The remaining
income is reinvested in the endowment, insuring that the value of the
investment continues to grow.
More than money
The endowment also provides the
high school with long-term financial stability. The endowment helps
ensure that KMLHS will continue to provide its students with rigorous
academics on the solid foundation of God’s Word and Christ’s example.
The gift that keeps giving
A gift to the
endowment is a gift that keeps on giving – literally. The high school
has a goal of growing the endowment fund to $3 million. As the endowment
grows, the high school becomes more financially stable and less
dependent on individual donors.
You can even establish a personalized fund in your name
who give or pledge $25,000 or more have the opportunity to establish a
personalized endowment fund in their name (i.e. The Smith Family
Endowment). These customized funds can be given all at once or over time
in payments (typically three to five years). Once the fund reaches
$25,000, it will begin paying out to tuition assistance according to the
donor’s predetermined criteria. Such named endowment funds can be added
to at any time and in any amount. Until the $25,000 mark is reached,
the interest gained is reinvested in the fund.
Gifts to KMLHS are crucial to its future
