Annual Fund

The Annual Fund contributes 8% of our operating revenues, impacting every aspect of our students’ experience.

Gifts to the Annual Fund give the administration the flexibility to respond to programming needs in three general areas:

Students

  • Financial aid for 26% of Beaver families, resulting in a student body that reflects the wide socio-economic range of the surrounding communities.
  • Supports programs like guest speakers, special events, and technology resources

Faculty

  • Faculty salaries in the top 5% of New England independent schools.
  • Professional development opportunities

Buildings & Grounds

  • Continual campus upgrades. Recent projects include the renovation of the kitchen, admissions suite, Bradley Hall, and the main foyer.

A robust Annual Fund enhances the school’s ability to build and sustain a team of gifted faculty and support the programs that distinguish a Beaver education. Recent investments in programs like technology and NuVu, whose immediate impact was felt by the entire student body, were made possible by a strong Annual Fund. Every gift is important, regardless of its size. We celebrate the support provided by the entire Beaver community of parents, alumni and faculty in continuing to strengthen the student experience.

Volunteers Needed!

Each year we invite interested parents, alumni and parents of alumni to join our Annual Fund Committee. Members receive training at a fall kick-off meeting and make a handful of phone calls to ask for gifts for the Annual Fund. Volunteers are recognized at a reception in the spring and are invited to the Annual Meeting of the Corporation in May. If you are interested, please contact Erica DeRosa.
