Endowment - Ensuring Our Future!
Since Bosque School’s beginning, the Bosque School Board of Trustees has been committed to growing the young endowment for a secure future. Endowments allow long-term growth of funds that ultimately provide scholarships and operating revenue from the interest accrued each year. Building the endowment ensures sustainability of financial aid efforts and provides an additional funding source separate from the annual operating budget.

Established Financial Aid Endowments:
Alumni Scholarship Fund:
The smallest of our endowments, this fund was established by our young alumni association through an inaugural gift from the Class of 2006. As the Alumni Scholarship Fund grows, it will offer a way to share the experience of Bosque School with others by providing financial aid awards. Family, friends and alumni are invited to make gifts to honor a Bosque Alumni or graduating senior.Alumni Page
Dr. Clifford Crawford Fund:
An endowment created by the Crawford family to honor the founder of the Bosque Ecosystem Monitoring Program (BEMP).
Dr Crawford was a Professor of Biology at the University of New Mexico: throughout his career he was dedicated to the study of ecological systems, particularly the Middle Rio Grande bosque. Because of his efforts, tens of thousands of students of all ages have participated in BEMP’s citizen science and watershed stewardship efforts. Dr. Clifford Crawford: July 30, 1932 – September 4, 2010. Supporters of BEMP are encouraged to help make this fund grow to sustain the program.
The Gerald and Betty Ford Presidential Scholarship Endowment:
Established in 2007, this endowment fund honors the late President Gerald R. Ford and former first lady, Betty Ford, for the service and heartfelt commitment they have shared with Bosque School. This scholarship will enable a student who embodies the Ford family virtues to experience a Bosque School education.
Bosque School is committed to using endowment funds to support the cultural, economic, and intellectual diversity of the school community by offering need-based financial aid to students who show academic promise, talent and good character. For independent schools, a healthy endowment makes it possible to respond to advancements in technology, offer higher salaries for top teachers and coaches, weather the ebb and flow of enrollment and sustain a strong financial aid program.
The Valerie Gerard Dillon Fund for Financial Aid:
This fund was created in 2005 in memory of the mother of a Bosque School Alumnae, Cariad Dillon ’02, by the family. This fund will provide financial aid to need-based students.
