Endowments & Planned Giving
A key component to the future of Eastside Catholic is financial stability. This requires not only good stewardship of our annual resources, but to develop a strong endowment fund that will support us over time. Endowment is invested donations that keep principle intact and use assets from the return on investment to supplement the operating income of the school. A strong endowment provides Eastside Catholic with the opportunity to grow and innovate. One of our top priorities is to increase the endowment to ensure our economic vitality.
Endowed Scholarship funds can be established with a gift of $25,000 or more and proceeds will be distributed when the fund reaches $50,000 or more. Endowment gifts are invested, keeping the principal intact and distributing a portion of the return on investment to provide scholarships and tuition assistance to benefit deserving Eastside Catholic students. Donors may continue to contribute to an endowed scholarship increasing the impact of the scholarship on the Eastside Catholic student body.
By including EC in your will, trust or other estate plans, you are leaving a lasting legacy. Planned gifts can take shape in a variety of forms such as IRA charitable rollovers, real estate, life insurance, retirement planned assets and bequests.

Established in 2017 by the Traynor family.
This memorial scholarship fund was set up to honor ECHS alumnae Wendi Marie Anderson Traynor who, at age 25, fell victim to a terrible act of domestic violence. In addition to the scholarship, the Traynor Family intends to educate and bring awareness to ECHS students to the signs and consequences of domestic violence through a series of workshops and guest speakers on campus. It is their hope that no other EC student will be harmed or lose their life to domestic violence.
This scholarship will be awarded to a female student entering her senior year at Eastside Catholic High School whose goal upon graduation is to attend college and focus on the study of law or pediatric medicine. Recipients of this scholarship are asked to consider contributing to this memorial scholarship fund during their adult years thus keeping the scholarship alive for future students as an ongoing reminder of the destructive consequences of domestic violence.
