The Commonwealth Fund
Make a gift
The Commonwealth Fund provides essential support for the School. Each year, tuition covers 78% of the School’s annual operating budget; earnings from our endowment contribute 10%; and the remaining 12% comes from generous donations to The Commonwealth Fund. We rely on our community of parents, alumni/ae, grandparents and friends to make a Commonwealth education possible for our students each year.
Commonwealth Fund Priorities: Options for Gift Designation
Unrestricted gifts to The Commonwealth Fund will be used where the immediate need is greatest. We encourage you to consider making your gift unrestricted as it ensures your donation will have an immediate impact.
Financial Aid & 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 the named funds below.
Faculty Development & 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 Enrichment will allow the School to continue to attract and retain such talented individuals.
