Wendt Family Endowment Fund

Wendt Family Endowment Fund

Originally funded via a generous estate gift from Virginia Wendt, the first female trustee of Fenwick, this fund is intended to provide one or more grants annually to Fenwick faculty members to provide professional development and/or educational opportunities.  It also celebrates the Wendt family’s long affiliation with Fenwick, its gratitude to Fenwick for what the school has meant to their family, and in particular gratitude for the Fenwick faculty, of which Dr. George F. Wendt ’65 was a member for several years.
