Philanthropy + Engagement (P+E) has always been critical to making big things happen at Beaver.

We are fortunate to have a passionate and invested community of volunteers and donors who believe in and wholly support our students and faculty to thrive. We believe that this commitment stems from a strong connection to our school’s mission.

The 20-22 Annual Report: A welcome from Head of School Kim Samson

From our founding in 1920 to today, it is because of the innovative educational mindset and thoughtful stewardship of individuals like you that our institution thrives.

Mente et manu is our school motto, meaning knowledge by hand and mind. Investing in an institution that believes in teaching and learning through these two channels is critical for success as a human being. I have seen and felt this motto at work over the last two years, and I feel so privileged to serve as Beaver’s head of school and continue prioritizing that culture with our larger community.

Joining a school during a centennial has afforded me the opportunity to learn about our rich school history from alumni of all decades, and meet so many caring community members who offer their time or connection to an individual or organizational partnership by saying “I would be happy to help connect Beaver to this opportunity” or “What do faculty today need to be successful?” Your financial and volunteer support provides the ‘value-add’ and makes our campus a connected—and much stronger—community.

Your generosity is essential to helping our students learn to become the thinkers and creators who will shape our world.

Below, you’ll find stories and links that explore and share the ways your impact is experienced on our campus.
