Each year, parents, teachers, staff, trustees, alumni, grandparents, parents of alumni and friends impact the lives of our students by contributing to Annual Giving.
This year, we have an ambitious goal of $1,150,000. Like most independent schools, tuition alone does not cover the entire cost of running North Shore. In fact, we need to raise approximately $8,600 per student this year to balance our budget. These annual contributions enrich every area of campus life and help North Shore deliver a well-rounded and enriched education by providing:
- Faculty salaries and development of strong, innovative curriculum
- Educational technology and equipment
- Library acquisitions
- Diversity in our student body
- Basic campus maintenance and operation
Last year, Annual Giving contributed roughly 7% of North Shore's budget. These unrestricted gifts enable the School to spend the dollars wherever it is most necessary. Thanks to the generosity of so many we build and sustain our team of talented faculty and attract a diverse student body.
