Annual Fund

Tuition alone does not cover the full cost of a Spruce Street School education. Like most independent schools, the school relies on the support of the community to maintain diverse programs, unique educational opportunities and its commitment to financial aid. The school is grateful for its faculty, staff, alumni, students, parents, grandparents, family members and trustees who together raise the needed funds to keep the school thriving. Last year we raised more than $160,000 in generous gifts from individuals.


Below is an excerpt from this year’s annual fund campaign letter.

The annual fund opens doors for our students by allowing them to experience art, music, Spanish and PE programs that are supported by your dollars. I challenge us all to give according to our own means in gratitude for all that our children are allowed to experience, and the care and respect we all experience. Just as our children are met right where they are, the annual fund asks all of us to give according to own means. Whatever that amount is, please give generously according to your family’s circumstances in support of all the children who breeze through the front door, entering an environment where they are met by name and are guided on their journey through Spruce Street School.”
