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.

Employer Matching Gift Programs

Many companies sponsor matching gift programs that will match the charitable gifts of employees or their employees’ spouses.

  • Ask your company (or your spouse’s company) if they have a matching gift program.
  • Follow your employer’s directions to complete a matching gift form and SBS will do the rest.
  • Stoneleigh-Burnham School is a non-profit organization that is certified tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the United States IRS code. The school’s tax ID #: 04-2163044
