Support Commonwealth

Commonwealth School relies on the generosity of alumni/ae, parents, and friends. Thank you for helping to make the Commonwealth experience possible.

The Commonwealth Fund supports 12% of the School's annual operating budget. It provides immediate, direct funding for the School's day-to-day operations. 

The Power of a Vision: a Campaign for Commonwealth is an investment in the future. By providing endowed support for financial aid and faculty compensation, and by securing our Boston home through support for much-needed renovations, this campaign will ensure Mr. Merrill's vision for the school carries forward for years to come.

Endowment: The Commonwealth School Endowment consists of a founding contribution by the Merrill Foundation in 1981 and additional donations from two 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 10% of the School's annual operating budget.
