The Commonwealth Fund

The Commonwealth Fund supports nearly 12% of Commonwealth's annual operating budget.

Your generosity helps us bridge the gap between tuition revenue and the cost of a Commonwealth education. We are grateful for our dedicated alumni/ae, parents, grandparents, and friends who provide vital support for the School.

Your gift to the Commonwealth Fund supports:

• Financial aid and student travel grants

• Faculty development and enrichment

• The Homework Project, a twice-weekly evening study hall for students seeking a quiet and uninterrupted space to work

• Engaging Assembly speakers

• Athletics, arts, and Health and Community programs

• Two annual trips to Hancock, Commonwealth’s longest-standing tradition

• Student projects and summer internships

• And much more

Unrestricted Commonwealth Fund contributions are used where they are needed most in the year they are received. If you wish to designate your gift to a specific area, you can learn more about our named funds and designations here.
