An independent K-12 school on a beautiful wooded campus, 3 miles from Washington, DC


B uilding the school’s endowment is a top strategic priority for Potomac. Gifts to Potomac’s endowment help fund all aspects of the school, with a focus on three areas: people, programs, and scholarship support.

Through careful investment and oversight, Potomac’s endowed funds will provide the school with a permanent stream of annual income that will:

  • Secure Potomac’s fiscal health
  • Minimize tuition increases
  • Sustain our leading-edge programs
  • Advance Potomac’s strategic goals

Endowment gifts may be restricted to a currently endowed fund or used to establish a new named fund. Donors can make an outright gift, pledge a gift over multiple years, or make an estate gift to support the endowment after their passing.

For more information or to make a gift, please contact Director of Advancement Barbara Overstreet at (703) 749-6330 or

"Build an endowment that can sustain a great school regardless of economic cycles and that diminishes the school’s reliance on tuition."
