What is the Annual Fund?

As a non-profit, independent school, Monica Ros receives no financial support from local or federal taxes – we rely on tuition dollars, endowment income, and fundraising to support our operations. Tuition covers approximately 80% of our annual costs, meaning we need to raise the additional 20%, approximately $300,000, from fundraising efforts. The strength of Monica Ros and its programs is a direct result of the collective effort of alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends who participate every year in the Annual Fund.

How much shall I give?

If we were to answer in dollars, the answer is different for each family and typically ranges from $25 to $25,000.

When it comes to deciding how much to give, reflect for a moment on what a Monica Ros experience has meant to your family. Think about the school as it is today: providing a well-rounded education that teaches to the whole child; a place full of rich traditions; a close community of students, parents and faculty; an inclusive space for all children; a curriculum rich in opportunities for students to imagine, discover and engage creatively with the world around them; a school driven by knowledgeable and compassionate educators. 

All of this has been made possible by eight decades of charitable gifts received from the generosity of current and former parents, grandparents, trustees, and friends.

Every gift helps us set the stage for a lifetime of learning and discovery!
