As in most independent schools, income from tuition covers most of the operating budget at Concord Hill. However, to meet the growing cost of providing a Concord Hill education, and to keep tuition levels as low as possible,we rely on donations from parents, grandparents, alumni families, faculty, staff, and friends.
Looking back over the school's 50 year history, we are grateful for the support of past and present members of our community who have made Concord Hill what it is today. Generations of families have benefited from their generosity, which has allowed us to enhance our programs, improve our facilities, and invest in our faculty to create a vibrant learning environment for our students.
Concord Hill's fundraising efforts support the school's mission both now and in the future. From annual gifts which make an immediate impact to Endowment gifts that last for generations, it is through your support that our exceptional community will continue to inspire young children and create a strong foundation for lifelong learning.
There are several ways to give to Concord Hill School:
The Annual Fund is the foundation of all fundraising at Concord Hill, as the school relies on this support to meet its operating budget each year. We are proud of our tradition of 100% participation in this vital effort by current parents and faculty.
In 2015, Concord Hill launched this comprehensive, three-tiered campaign in honor of the school's 50th Anniversary. We are excited to announce that we have nearly completed all the capital improvements that comprised Tiers One, Two, and Three. The final projects, including a brand-new Science classroom, HVAC improvements, and updates to the school’s Wisconsin Avenue façade, are due to be completed in the Fall of 2018.
Tiers One and Two included upgrades to our playground, a new outdoor classroom, improvements in our Community Room and performance space, and a brand-new Makerspace. The campaign also included a contribution to the school's Endowment through the Denise Gershowitz Legacy Gift. These improvements help us invest in our school just as we invest in young learners, and prepare Concord Hill for the next 50 years. An enormous thank you to our generous community for their continued support of our mission and school.
A strong Endowment ensures the ongoing strength of the institution, allowing our school to meet challenges and opportunities in years to come, remain competitive with other schools, and meet the changing needs of our students and faculty.
