ENDOWED AND SIMILAR FUNDS

Giving is a value that is deeply entrenched in our family, and it comes alive in various forms at Bement. This Report of Giving is generated with our sincere appreciation for all that we received from our community during this year of transition under Frank Henry’s lead as interim head of school. As an independent school, we rely on support through philanthropy to provide all that we need for each student to blossom. We see the benefits of your donations in the richness and depth of our program, the diversity of our community, and the beauty of our campus. This year there are several giving highlights we’d like to share. Giving Tuesday, December 1, was a success as we joined this international day of giving and demonstrated to our local communities that “Bement Gives.” This spring, we celebrated Carole Pennock and Nancy Pond as they concluded their tenures at Bement. The marks they have left on Bement are immeasurable, and their efforts touched so many of us throughout their years here. We were honored to announce two funds in their names: The Carole Pennock Lower School Fund, established by Ted, Chris ’90, and Alex ’94 Pennock, and the Nancy Pond World 2

ENDOWED AND SIMILAR FUNDS In addition to the Annual Fund, the Bement funds listed below provide for a diversity of programmatic funding. Income from these funds not only strengthens our operating budget, but also provides donors the option of designating their contributions to areas of specific interest.
