The Nerinx Fund
Every Student. Every Day.
The Nerinx Fund (formerly the Annual Fund) exists to provide students and faculty those “extras” that make the experience one that makes Nerinx distinctive. Those extras include athletic equipment and travel expenses, our theater and musical productions, field trips, state-of-the art lab materials, updated technology, and more. All of these things play a significant role in allowing us to remain true to our mission to empower young women and prepare them for the rapidly changing world that awaits them. Take Cate Fear '24 for example. Watch the video below to see her story.
Students like Cate wouldn’t have the opportunity to explore themselves and their world if it weren’t for gifts to the Nerinx Fund. Because of your support, there are 600 more current students at Nerinx, unique in their own way, poised to do great things.
The need to support our students is great and continues to grow. This year, nearly 40% of Nerinx students received financial assistance. Nerinx is currently providing more than $1.9 Million in scholarships and aid to families and we are still not meeting all of our students’ needs. Without the help provided by scholarship funds, many current students would not be able to attend Nerinx. Your scholarship contribution is a great blessing.
Gifts to the Nerinx Hall General Scholarship Fund support the school by helping Nerinx Hall supplement the restricted named scholarship funds in meeting student financial needs.
A Restricted Named Scholarship Fund ensures a continuous source of funding of financial assistance for students in need or to honor student achievement. The minimum investment for a named scholarship is $30,000. The donor may define the criteria used for establishing the scholarship. Scholarships can be established through contributions of cash, stock, real estate, charitable remainder trusts, or bequests.

A gift made in memory or honor of a loved one is a gratifying and lasting tribute. These types of gifts are a special way to honor parents, loved ones, friends and fellow classmates.
When you make a memorial or tribute gift, we will send a note to the person, or the family of the person, being honored or memorialized provided we have contact information.
