Charles Wright Academy Endowment Overview

It takes a village not only to raise a child, but also to raise the funds to fully support that child. That’s why Charles Wright dedicates so much time to nurturing the Annual Fund and planning the Spirit Auction year after year. But those aren’t the only ways in which donors choose to support our programs. Investment manager Cliff Quisenberry, who is a CWA parent and a Trustee, explains the importance of a strong and healthy endowment to ensuring excellence in academic programs, recruiting and retaining talented faculty and staff, and ensuring access to a CWA education regardless of a family’s ability to pay.
