The fall parent Annual Fund Drive is going on now through June 30. Make your gift or pledge today.
Because every child benefits from our Annual Fund, we encourage every family to participate at a giving level that is realistic and meaningful for them. This year, as we do every year, we aim for 100% parent participation.
Our Annual Fund is a key source of funding for the School and makes up a significant portion of the gap between what the School receives in net tuition and the true cost of educating each child. For the 2017 - 2018, it is projected that the School will spend $4,304 per child, beyond what the School receives in tuition, on the core educational experience. Our shared goal is that everyone steps up to fill this gap. No matter each family’s particular capacity to give, we encourage you to give as generously as possible to fully fund the true cost of educating each child you have at the School.
We encourage every family to participate at a giving level that is right for them, whether that is above or below the following levels. These benchmarks provide context for how gifts at many sizes can make a difference at our School, and what is typical of parent annual gifts at independent day schools in our state and nationally.
