Why the Annual Fund?
Each year, the school relies on contributions to provide critical support to our operating budget above and beyond tuition. Gifts to the annual fund limit our reliance on tuition and help us sustain the unique approach to education that can only be found at The New School. These gifts have an immediate and direct benefit to each student and faculty member, as well as to the quality and range of all school programs.
Our Annual Fund is made up of individual gifts, large and small, which provide the funds necessary to ensure the school maintains its high level of excellence in education and program offerings. We count on the philanthropic support from parents, grandparents, alumni parents, faculty, staff and friends. No matter the size of gift, your contribution to the Annual Fund is important. Only you can help us reach our goal of 100 percent participation.
