Creating an environment that fosters the spirit of trailblazing and allows students to be themselves takes the support of the entire community.

Gifts to endowment funds and capital projects are a way to make an impact.

Unlike gifts to the Annual Fund, gifts to endowments are invested by Flint Hill and only the interest is spent. This assures that there is money every year to be used from these gifts. To learn more about the details of endowment gifts and how you can make a long-term difference to Flint Hill contact Director of Development Leslie Hutchens at lhutchens@flinthill.org or 703.584.2424.


Endowment giving will always be an area of focus for Flint Hill with the School’s long-term financial health in mind.

Many thanks to members of the Flint Hill community who have helped to establish, sustain and enhance these endowed funds. We look forward to working with family and friends to continue to build this crucial resource. To discuss supporting these endowment funds or establishing a new endowment fund, please contact Assistant Head of School for Institutional Advancement Meredith Cook VanDuyne at 703.584.2351 or mvanduyne@flinthill.org.
