Why the Annual Fund?
Every gift to the annual fund strengthens our school and transforms student lives. Tuition covers only 60% of the cost of a Stoneleigh-Burnham experience, so every gift counts!
Gifts to the Annual Fund help cover daily operating expenses. Your gifts:
- Provide financial aid for deserving students
- Support faculty in professional development
- Assist with maintenance of facilities
Choose a gift method that works best for you.
