The Annual Fund helps bridge the gap between tuition and actual education costs. The Annual Fund is not an emergency fund nor is it for bricks and mortar. Gifts to the Annual Fund support important aspects of the School’s mission – scholarship and professional development. Parents, grandparents, trustees, faculty, staff and friends of The Burlington School are asked to participate in the Annual Fund each year. Participation is a chief goal, so while we hope you will be generous in your giving, we hope to count you among those who give every year. 100 percent of faculty/staff and trustees support the Annual Fund each year, and we continue to aim for 100 percent from our current families.
The Burlington School's Annual Fund campaign is a vital component to the operating budget of our school. Those making a gift of $1,000 or more will be recognized as TBS Society members. The Terrace Level will recognize those making a gift of $2,500 or more. Regardless of the amount, a gift at any level is greatly appreciated. Full participation among all of our families is a major goal of our Annual Fund.
Many corporate matching gift programs will match your contributions to the Annual Fund, so please check with your employer’s Human Resource office for more details.
