Endowment

In Cape Fear Academy’s recent history, alumni, parents, grandparents, and friends have established named endowment funds to provide lasting support for financial aid, faculty development, and academics. It is Cape Fear Academy Board of Trustees’ policy that unrestricted, named endowment funds may be established with a gift of $25,000 or more, and restricted, named endowment funds may be established with a gift of $100,000 or more. Donations of any size can be made to an existing endowment. 

Our school’s endowment portfolio is managed by Lumina Wealth Management under the direction of our Finance and Investment Committees of the Board of Trustees.
