Annual Fund

A Proud Tradition of Giving

The Country School practices many proud traditions including participation in the Annual Fund.
Because Country School families like yours know how valuable a Country School experience is, supporting our ongoing Mission with gift to the Annual Fund is an easy choice. 
For over 65 years, gifts to the Annual Fund have powerfully impacted every aspect of the school: from lightbulbs to library books, from the front door to the farthest athletic field, and from the tiniest acorn to the longest-serving teacher. 
To support this Mission, The Country School Board of Trustees builds an operating budget each year that empowers us to prioritize the programs and people who carry out our Mission on a daily basis.  That budget is supported by tuition, our endowment, and your philanthropic gifts, including those received through our Annual Fund.  
This year, our Annual Fund will add $218,000 to the operating budget – and we need your help to make it happen!
Help us Bridge the Gap!
