Each year, our Annual Fund helps provide the resources we need to maintain and enhance our students’ experience. Smaller things, like library books and baseballs…and big items, from new laptops to continuing teacher education courses. The Annual Fund helps keep the doors open and the labs stocked – filling in the critical gap between tuition and actual expenses.
Tuition doesn’t cover every cost of running such an exceptional institution. In fact, the cost of educating each student exceeds tuition by approximately $3,000. We depend on our Annual Fund to address this gap.
The Annual Fund supports every student's education. Even if you paid full tuition and didn't receive financial aid, your child’s education has been subsidized by gifts from alumni, parents and friends.
It is our community’s responsibility to support our children and our future, and we greatly appreciate of a contribution of any size. Leadership gifts of $2,500 or more from our Perelman Partners demonstrate donors’ commitment to sustaining our school in the future.
Donors can also make meaningful celebratory and memorial gifts to honor and remember loved ones and special occasions. A beautiful tribute card is sent to the recipient to acknowledge the gift. Donations are $10 (by check) and $18 (by credit card). You can also dedicate a book in someone’s honor or memory for $25. Contact Kerry DeVaul at 610-658-2518 ext. 225 or give online now.
Certain companies also offer a matching gifts program, in which employees’ gifts are matched dollar for dollar – or sometimes doubled or tripled. Please ask your Human Resources department if your employer participates in this type of program or contact us at 610-658-2518, ext. 255 to learn more.
Every family that makes a gift at any level is honored by having a leaf with their name added to our beautiful giving trees at all three of our Centers. Our hope is for 100% participation from our families, with every member of the community helping to make our school the best it can be.
