Named Funds and Designations

All gifts to The Commonwealth Fund enhance the school and our mission. An unrestricted gift will support Commonwealth’s most immediate needs and priorities. If you wish to specify a particular use for your contribution, you are welcome to allocate your gift to one of the named funds or Commonwealth initiatives below.

Financial Aid and Student Support

It is the school’s fundamental commitment that any opportunity available to one student be afforded to all. Commonwealth’s financial aid program makes this possible. Thirty percent of our current families receive some form of financial aid or support. You may choose to allocate your gift to support financial aid generally or direct it to one of these named funds.


Faculty Development and Enrichment

Commonwealth has a deep commitment to investing in and supporting our dedicated faculty and staff. Our teachers have a passion for their subjects and for inspiring exploration and discovery in their students. A gift designated for Faculty Development and Support will allow the school to continue to attract and retain such talented individuals.

You may choose to allocate your gift to Faculty Development and Support or direct it to one of these named funds.


Endowed Funds

The Commonwealth School Endowment consists primarily of funds contributed during each of the school's three major capital campaigns. Funds are invested, managed, and closely monitored by the school's Investment Committee. Earnings from the endowment support 11% of the school's annual operating budget.
