Annual Giving is vitally important. The Overfield School relies on income from charitable contributions through the Annual Fund to help reach a balanced budget each year.
Tuition makes up about 70% of the operating budget, while the Annual Fund and other charitable giving help cover the remaining cost. The Annual Fund helps tuition to be kept at reasonable rates for the market we serve.
The Overfield School continues to offer an unsurpassed student-to-teacher ratio in an environment where joy, wonder, and imagination foster life-long learning in young children. Income from Annual Giving allows us to provide such necessities as teacher salaries, educational technology, materials and equipment. Without the support of our generous donors like you, Overfield simply could not maintain this standard of excellence.
The vast majority of Annual Giving contributions come from current parents and grandparents, although we also depend on the participation of alumni families, faculty, friends, trustees, foundations and corporations.
Generous and consistent support allows The Overfield School to maintain the highest quality early childhood educational experience possible for all students today and in the future. Additionally, a contribution to The Overfield Annual Fund offers the opportunity to make a tax-deductible gift in any amount.
We ask each family to participate at a level appropriate for their unique financial circumstances. All we ask is that you give no more or no less than you are able. Every gift, regardless of size, is important to this effort and helps to support the school in essential ways. We strive for 100% participation from all current Overfield Families.
In addition to providing financial resources vital to The Overfield School, high rates of participation in annual giving are essential to the school’s ability to attract gifts and grants from foundations, corporations and other individuals.
