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 $200,000 in generous gifts from individuals and matching funds.

 

Pledges are due by November 16, 2022. Gifts and pledge payments are due by June 15, 2023. We happily accept securities and matching funds. For more information please contact the Development Office .

“When we joined the school, we were hopeful for a community where our children would be known and belong. What we could not have imagined is that our family would also be known and belong. We have learned that Spruce Street School is a place where children – and the adults in their lives – experience a deep sense of belonging. Perhaps you have experienced a feeling of belonging, too, when a teacher welcomes your child by name at drop off, shares a story about your child, or offers a hug during a moment of struggle. Maybe you have experienced belonging when a community member introduces themselves at a school gathering, invites your child on a playdate, or shows support in a time of growth. Through everyday moments and interactions, belongingness is fundamental to Spruce Street School.”

Allison and Shawn Hintz, Parents of Grace ‘20 and Will '23

Planned Giving

Help Plan for Spruce Street School’s Future

Planned giving is practical for many families, not just those with the greatest wealth. This avenue for giving allows 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 the Development Office.

Volunteering

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!

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the office.
