he High Meadows Fund is High Meadows School’s top giving priority because it directly supports the two most important aspects of our community – our students and teachers. It is fundamental to the school’s operating budget, and dollars raised each year go toward:
The High Meadows Fund helps support every student in every classroom every day.
I give to the High Meadows Fund so that I am able to contribute as much as I can to give back to the school that will provide so much in the coming years for my children.
Your tax-deductible, unrestricted gift ensures that every High Meadows student benefits from an exceptional educational experience beyond what tuition alone would cover. The High Meadows Fund closes the gap between tuition and the actual cost of a High Meadows education.
High Meadows Fund donations are crucial to fostering a love of learning for all our students because it helps us employ highly-credentialed faculty and develop new dynamic programming.
Our Board of Trustees and Head of School are committed to minimizing tuition increases. That is largely driven by the strength of the High Meadows Fund which comes from the collective participation of parents, alumni, grandparents, trustees, faculty, staff, and other friends of the school – a community larger than just those who pay tuition.
We have created an opportunity for you to direct your High Meadows gift to fund specific areas of the school. They include:
Unrestricted gifts support all the details that make High Meadows an extraordinary community.
From campus maintenance/improvements to need-based financial aid, a gift directed to this area will be spent on our areas of greatest needs.
Our teachers have a passion for learning, and their energy and expertise inspire our students every day. Gifts directed here will help fund compelling professional development and support strategic initiatives to strengthen our faculty’s compensation.
Robotics kits, coding equipment, and iPads are just a few of the tools our teachers use to enhance our students’ experience.
A gift directed to this fund will provide classroom technology and materials that support innovative teaching practices.
We believe that the arts and our connection classes are core academic experiences that open a world of possibilities for our students. Gifts directed here will help pay for items such as musical instruments, PE equipment, art materials, library books, and our campus animals.
The Fund offers a tax-deductible opportunity to augment tuition revenue that supports the school’s operating budget. It allows the High Meadows community—parents, alumni, faculty, staff, trustees, grandparents and friends of all financial circumstances—the ability to support the life of the school. This is a common practice for most independent schools throughout the country and is becoming more valuable as we continue to face rising expenses.
Our school’s general operating budget. Dollars raised ensure that the school can attract and support excellent faculty and staff, offer dynamic programming, allow students access to new technology, and maintain our one-of-a-kind campus. In these ways, the funds help to maintain small classroom sizes and makes possible professional development opportunities for our faculty and staff. The High Meadows Fund also enables the school to offer financial aid opportunities that foster community.
A gift to the Fund sends a powerful message that you believe in High Meadows School and our mission. When you participate, you become part of the school’s philanthropic legacy in support of teaching and learning. Additionally, broad support from our entire school community helps to influence the giving decisions of community foundations and other outside giving opportunities.
Most of any school budget is applied to its people and facility maintenance, leaving little flexibility due to those fixed costs. We ask those who can stretch to please do so, given that not everyone is able due to their current circumstances.
No. The High Meadows Fund is a primary source for unrestricted, annual operating support. Those critical, flexible dollars allow the school to meet the most pressing and immediate needs of the school. High Meadows does not have a sizeable endowment relative to other peer institutions of its size to augment revenue provided by tuition dollars, which makes us more dependent on the success of the High Meadows Fund.
