The internet is your friend..... there's gotta be online calculators that'll figure that stuff out.

I'm gonna guess.... $32,729.65

Don't use that - as I just did a search and plopped some numbers in not having any clue of what I was doing.

It depends on how it's compounded (the more often it's compounded, the higher your actual return will be).
If it's not continuous, you use the formula: Total = P(1+i/n)^(nt)
P=principle
i= the decimal interest rate (in this case 0.09)
t= time in years
n = number of times the interest is compounded in a year.
^ = exponentiate

If you're only compounding once a year, n=1 and the formula becomes P(1+i)^t

Use the formula for each contribution (the first $2000 will collect interest for 10 years, the second $2000 for 9 years, ...., the tenth $2000 for 1 year):
Code:
Contribution       Formula                Total
1    $2000          2000*(1.09)^10   =   $4734.73
2    $2000          2000*(1.09)^9    =   $4343.79
3    $2000          2000*(1.09)^8    =   $3985.13
4    $2000          2000*(1.09)^7    =   $3656.08
5    $2000          2000*(1.09)^6    =   $3354.20
6    $2000          2000*(1.09)^5    =   $3077.25
7    $2000          2000*(1.09)^4    =   $2823.16
8    $2000          2000*(1.09)^3    =   $2590.06
9    $2000          2000*(1.09)^2    =   $2376.20
10   $2000          2000*(1.09)^1    =   $2180.00
------------------------------------------------
                                         $33120.60
If it's continuous compounding, you use the formula: Total = Pe^(rt) where
P= Principle
r= the decimal interest rate
t= the time in years
e=2.71828
^ = exponentiate

Do that for each contribution:
Code:
Contribution       Formula                      Total
1    $2000          2000*2.71828^(.09*10)  =   $4919.20
2    $2000          2000*2.71828^(.09*9)   =   $4495.81
3    $2000          2000*2.71828^(.09*8)   =   $4108.86
4    $2000          2000*2.71828^(.09*7)   =   $3755.22
5    $2000          2000*2.71828^(.09*6)   =   $3432.01
6    $2000          2000*2.71828^(.09*5)   =   $3136.62
7    $2000          2000*2.71828^(.09*4)   =   $2866.66
8    $2000          2000*2.71828^(.09*3)   =   $2619.93
9    $2000          2000*2.71828^(.09*2)   =   $2394.43
10   $2000          2000*2.71828^(.09*1)   =   $2188.35
------------------------------------------------------
                                               $33917.09
For the calculator that Janster posted, enter the following numbers:
Current principle = $0
Annual addition = $2000
Years to grow = 10
Interest rate = 9
Compound Interest Times Annually (1 for annual, 12 for monthly, 365 for daily)
Make additions at "start"
