Annual, Capital, and Planned Gifts

The Annual Fund is Browne Academy’s first giving priority and the most critical fundraising effort at the school.

A vibrant Annual Fund is one of the hallmarks of a thriving independent school and is one of the important opportunities for parents to participate directly in the life of the school. As with nearly all independent schools, the Annual Fund is Browne Academy’s largest revenue source after tuition. Your tax-deductible contributions to the Annual Fund are critical to enriching your child’s educational programs and providing a safe learning environment. Annual Fund gifts help the school meet yearly expenses such as faculty salaries, professional development, classroom enhancements, technology upgrades and more. Moreover, these contributions are critical for future efforts, such as attracting new students and faculty and applying for education grants.

We depend on our community to make Browne Academy the first priority for discretionary giving, and we hope that all members will participate to the best of their ability.
