In these difficult and tumultuous times, the importance of community has taken on new meaning. During 2020, your unwavering support has shown a commitment beyond what we could have imagined and one that has sustained us.
This year has shown it necessitates a strong vision to be able to thrive through change and imagine a path forward for progress and well-being. Studio’s humanistic approach focuses on all people, process and product, intellect and emotions, scholarship and character, and is most importantly, inclusive. Students are empowered to be independent thinkers, communicate well, and go forth with confidence into an ever-changing, diverse world.
Beginning with #GivingTuesday, your Annual Fund gifts directly support each and every student, instilling the core values of a Studio School education. It is a transformative education, creating a just and equitable society, now and for generations to come.
The Annual Fund Appeal, launched in the fall of each year, provides unrestricted funds that are critical for the day-to-day operations of the school, bridging the gap between tuition and the actual cost of educating each child. The entire school community—parents, trustees, alumni, grandparents, friends, and others—participates in the appeal, which supports all areas of the institution, including academics, the arts, teacher training and development, operations, and financial aid. Each family is asked to contribute to the Annual Fund to the best of their ability and we seek 100% participation from our parent body.
The Studio School is a 501(c)3 not‑for-profit organization and donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law. Many employers will match charitable donations made by their employees. Please ask your Human Resources Department for the necessary paperwork.
