vibrant culture of philanthropy has sustained our ability to offer excellence in education for more than 40 years. Together, we help each student attain his or her personal best. Tuition plays the largest role in our ability to serve students, yet it only covers 85% of our annual budget. To cover the rest of the operating costs, we turn to philanthropy.
We are fortunate to have widespread support for the school’s top giving priority – the High Meadows Fund, our annual giving campaign – which benefits every student, in every classroom, every day. As a not-for-profit organization, philanthropy is fundamental to the school’s operating budget and the reason we are so deeply appreciative of broad participation from our entire High Meadows community of parents, our Board of Trustees, alumni, faculty and staff, parents of alumni, grandparents, and friends of the school.
Just as important to the school’s short- and long-term sustainability are gifts to endowment, which help establish a strong financial foundation for the school’s future, and gifts to capital projects, which support the facilities and infrastructure necessary for 21st century learning.
These combined philanthropic efforts and the generosity of our school community help provide our students with an exceptional educational experience and opportunities that go far beyond the classroom, ensuring High Meadows graduates are ready to thrive in high school and beyond.
