Athletics Endowment Fund

Many thanks to Gary and Jennifer Johnsen for honoring the athletics experience at CCES by “seeding” the CCES Athletics Endowment in the summer of 2021, in collaboration with the Booster Club.
 
Gary and Jennifer Johnsen’s sons Jeffrey Johnsen ’17 and Ryan Johnsen ’21, were no strangers to athletic success when they were at Christ Church Episcopal School.  Both attended from Primer through 12th grade, and both brothers were quarterbacks on the football team and pitchers on the baseball team.  Their parents declare that athletics played a huge role in their lives— teaching them how to work as a team, how to humbly win and graciously lose, and most importantly, how to overcome adversity.  
 
The CCES Athletics Endowment provides annual funding in support of all CCES athletics programs. Funds contributed to the Athletics Endowment Fund remain intact for perpetuity and are invested and managed as part of the overall CCES Endowment. The annual proceeds of the Athletics Endowment Fund (4.5% of a rolling 3-year average of investment) will be used at the discretion of the Athletics Director in consultation with the Head of School, Assistant Head for Finance and Operations, Assistant Head for Advancement, and Booster Club President.
 
Aside from the obvious long-lasting financial stability, gifts to athletics help open doors to initiatives that are essential to providing additional opportunities for student-athletes to learn, grow, and compete— and to strive toward even greater success.
CCES was top of mind for this gift because no other organization has had such a personal and profound impact on our family, both in terms of academics and athletics, said Jennifer.
Gifts/pledges to the CCES Athletics Endowment Fund may be made through cash, stock, planned, or deferred giving. For more information on making a gift to the CCES Athletics Endowment Fund, please contact Jamie Inman, Assistant Head for Advancement, at 864-331-4231 or inmanj@cces.org.
