The Campaign’s objective is to add $14.5 million in Endowed Scholarship Funds to better meet the needs of students who choose Calvert Hall. Over half of Calvert Hall’s 1,175 students receive tuition assistance of one kind or another, with the average annual grant being $5,800. Calvert Hall offers several ways that donors can support the need for scholarship funds. Each opportunity reflects a special way for generous alumni, families, and friends of Calvert Hall to help advance our Lasallian traditions for the next generations of students. At Calvert Hall’s annual Scholarship Luncheon, donors and student scholars are invited to meet each other, share their stories, and build special relationship that can last a lifetime.

Endowed Fund for Patron Scholarships are for donors who aspire to make a philanthropic commitment that offers a special way to make a difference in a student’s life. Patrons would sponsor one student at a time who demonstrates family financial circumstances that require scholarship support for the full cost of tuition and expenses. A Patron Scholarship opens the doors to a Lasallian educational experience for students who otherwise would not be able to attend Calvert Hall, reflecting a value that called St. John Baptist de La Salle to create his first school.
The Campaign’s objective is to add $4.0 million in Endowed Funds for Faculty Support to better address the needs of the faculty as well as the academic programs, extra‐curricular activities, and athletic endeavors under their care as teachers, moderators, advisors, and coaches. The Distinguished Teaching Chair and Teaching Chair programs are designed to recognize and encourage excellence in teaching, with the holders of these honors receiving an additional stipend and access to professional development funds. The programs’ hallmark is that the balance of funds derived annually from these Endowed Funds will be applied to the overall budget for faculty support, increasing the pool of funds appropriated for all faculty members.
Teachers who have been on the Calvert Hall faculty for ten or more years may be considered for a Distinguished Teaching Chair, one of the most prestigious honors a Calvert Hall educator can receive. Distinguished Teaching Chairs will receive $5,000 annually as additional stipends for three years; and, will be eligible for up to $5,000 to support their professional development.
Teachers who have been on the Calvert Hall faculty for less than ten years may be considered for an Endowed Teaching Chair, which recognizes excellence in the classroom by young teachers and teachers new to the profession.

This Endowed Fund offers donors a way to provide additional support for Calvert Hall’s faculty, including instructional support (e.g., class field trips), new technology and specialized equipment for classrooms and labs, and support for faculty salaries. These funds will help ensure the presence long into the future of a talented and dedicated faculty committed to the Lasallian charism, which is essential to the educational experience at Calvert Hall.
“Young people need the light of watchful guides to lead them on the path of salvation: guides who have an adequate understanding of what God expects of young people, and of their usual shortcomings.” St. John Baptist de La Salle MTR 5:3 (Med 197.3)
Donors with an interest in building sufficient resources to support the professional development of Calvert Hall’s faculty and staff have an opportunity to advance this top priority by creating an Endowed Fund for Faculty and Staff Professional Development. These resources will enable more members of the faculty and staff to engage in continuing education and other opportunities to advance their skills in the classroom and the administration of Calvert Hall.
This Endowed Fund provides vitally needed resources for quick response to urgent needs, extraordinary situations, and special opportunities. It offers a way for the President to help in the case of hardship situations involving members of the student body, faculty, or staff. It also can be used to bring a distinguished speaker to campus or offer a special enrichment program for students. From time to time, the Fund may be the source of funds to help supplement budget appropriations for faculty and staff salaries.
This Endowed Fund is intended to help support Calvert Hall’s commitment to the arts and music. In the Lasallian tradition, a young man’s education needs to include more than the study of academic subjects. Time spent in a pursuit of the performing and visual arts as well as music is an essential aspect of the learning experience at Calvert Hall, instilling a lifelong appreciation for the creative arts and the world of imagination. This Endowed Fund will provide resources to support all components of the Calvert Hall Arts & Music Program, including instrumental music, theater, visual arts, and vocal music.
This Endowed Fund provides a way for Calvert Hall to supplement the modest stipends offered to faculty members engaged in our 60 extra‐curricular activities and 40 athletic teams. The time spent by Calvert Hall’s teachers working with students outside the classroom in their roles as moderators and coaches is an invaluable part of the students’ learning experience. These funds offer a way to recognize the special contributions of time and talents by these teachers.
This Endowed Fund provides Calvert Hall with vitally needed resources to support projects that preserve and beautify the facilities and grounds of the campus. The Calvert Hall campus is appreciated by students, families, alumni, and visitors for its aesthetic appeal. This Endowed Fund allows Calvert Hall to maintain and sustain this quality of the school without compromising its capacity to continue supporting an exceptional learning experience that attracts talented students, faculty members, and staff to Calvert Hall.
