Earnings from the endowment fund are used to keep Dock affordable for families, provide faculty and staff salaries that attract and keep qualified personnel, provide financial aid for students who cannot afford to attend without help, and maintain Dock's beautiful buildings and grounds.

There are three broad areas for which gifts can be designated and subgroups within each broad area.

  • Educational Program funds support all areas of the annual operating budget. 

  • Campus Maintenance supports maintenance and improvements to building and grounds. This fund is called the Claude & Anna Groff Endowment Fund in memory of Claude who spent 42 years in grooming and caring for the grounds and plants.

  • Financial Aid helps students and their families who apply and qualify for direct tuition assistance from Dock
