Thanks to the immense generosity of contributors who have supported us for decades, ROBS has been able to build the largest endowment of any school of its kind in the Houston area. We started the fund in 1990 with $100,000, and through ongoing donations and prudent management of the principal, we have grown the endowment to more than $35.6 million. A portion of the earnings are carefully used to meet a portion of our yearly operating budget.
In essence, the endowment is an enormous savings account for all who are part of the ROBS community, and all who will be. The endowment means we will never have to compromise the excellence we have worked so hard to establish at ROBS. It allows us to provide your children with an extraordinary experience now, and it ensures we will continue to be outstanding, well, forever.
Our families, past and present, along with numerous other friends of the School, understand the importance of a strong endowment for a school of our stature. They have responded with overwhelming support.
