Gifts to The Prentice School’s Annual Giving Campaign help support operational expenses, as well as academic and enrichment programs throughout our school. In addition, donations extend to our scholarship fund, which assists those children who otherwise might not be able to attend Prentice. As an independent nonprofit school, Prentice relies primarily on tuition and proceeds from fundraising to cover operating expenses. Tuition alone does not cover our operating budget; in fact it only covers 90%. Your contributions fill in the 10% gap. We strive to minimize our tuition increases to support our commitment to a diverse student community.
Our annual goal is to engage new donors and to reach 100% participation from our Prentice families, Board of Directors, and faculty and staff.
Contributions support the long-term growth of our school and enable us to invest in new technologies, support our curriculum, offer scholarships, and provide professional development for our faculty. All contributions to the Annual Giving Campaign are tax-deductible and accepted all year long.
A gift of any size makes an impact and helps us reach our goal of 100% participation. Your gift demonstrates your commitment to and confidence in The Prentice School.
Are the Keys to the Prentice Future
As a nonprofit, The Prentice School benefits from the generosity of current and former parents, grandparents, alumni, faculty, staff, major donors and friends who embrace and support our mission.
In order to strengthen our robust academic and enrichment programs, we must bridge the gap between tuition and the rising cost of educating each student. Every dollar you donate makes a difference in our ability to serve more students and embrace new opportunities.
