On Saturday, February 12, 2022, at 5:00pm, we are thrilled to gather as a community for an adult-only event—our annual auction at the Swedish Club. We are incredibly excited to make new friends, gather with past friends, and raise money for our school.  

There will be a live auction, buy-in parties, pick-of-the-live raffle, dessert dash, silent items, music, games, drinks, and heavy appetizers. 

Click here to sponsor or donate an item here to this year's event. Sponsorships are an excellent way to support our event if you cannot attend and an avenue for corporations to contribute.

Auction invitations will be mailed in January. If you would like an invitation to the event, please send a request to office@sprucestreetschool.org.

Thank you so much for supporting Spruce Street School.

If you are interested in sponsoring the event as a business or an individual, please reach out to Megan Schmidt.

Annual Fund

The Annual Fund campaign happens every fall to support our students. Tuition alone does not cover the full cost of a Spruce Street School education. Like most independent schools, the school relies on 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 $170,000 in generous gifts from individuals.

 

Pledges are due by November 17. Gifts and pledge payments are due by June 16. We happily accept securities and matching funds. For more information please contact the Development Office .

“While we have enjoyed many joyful moments of in-person activities over the years, there was also the disappointments that came with the pandemic. Through it, Spruce Street School provided care, hope, and teaching not only for our son but also for our family. The principles of empathy, inclusion, and community were in place and guided behaviors. And the philosophies around trying hard things, learning from mistakes, and sharing ideas all showed up clearly. It was absolutely a challenging year, and yet it was the best possible school year we could have hoped for, considering the conditions.”

Julie Marl, Parent of Harry ‘22

Help Plan for Spruce Street School’s Future

Planned giving is practical for many families, not just those with the greatest wealth. These avenues for giving allow Spruce Street School to safely plan for the future while ensuring a lasting legacy. Planned gifts often require assistance from your professional financial advisor. These gifts typically come from assets in your estate rather than disposable income, and typically come to maturity upon your death.

Ways to Give:

  • Charitable Remainder Trust
  • Charitable Lead Trust
  • Endowment Gift
  • IRA Charitable Rollover
  • Life Insurance Policies
  • Memorial and Tribute Gifts
  • Real Estate
  • Retirement Plan Assets

Please discuss with your professional financial advisor to learn how to support Spruce Street School’s future with a planned gift, or contact Megan Schmidt

Volunteering

IMG_1639

Spruce Street School relies on volunteers to support a broad range of projects. We ask our new families to tell us their skills, interests and passions so that we can call on them to help us. Parents volunteer to do things like plan events, chaperone trips, read to students, provide snacks, fundraise, maintain our facilities and work on the Board of Trustees or in committees- just to name a few!
