When you make a committment to the Renbrook Fund, you open the doors to endless possibilities for our students to become thoughtful, self-aware and globally literate adults.
The Renbrook Fund brings learning to life at Renbrook. From essential classroom items to bringing new technologies for students to explore, the Renbrook Fund allows faculty and staff to educate students to prepare them for their futures.
Support to the Renbrook Fund comes in many sizes, but all are essential for the day-to-day costs of keeping Renbrook at its best. We in the Alumni and Development department ask that you think about the impact that Renbrook has had on your life and that, of a dear one, and make the Renbrook Fund a philanthropic priority.
Now, more than ever, Renbrook is pushing the envelope to integrate the newest trends so students can be at the forefront of their own education. The Renbrook Fund makes all of this possible.
If you would like to make a gift or if you have any questions, please contact Allison Young, Director of Annual Giving, at 860.236.1661, ext. 318 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Renbrook Fund is made up of gifts from parents, alumni, faculty and staff, parents of alumnae/i, former faculty and staff, grandparents, and friends. Contributions have an immediate impact on the quality of the school and directly benefit Renbrook students.
Tuition alone does not cover the costs of an independent school education. Like other schools and colleges, Renbrook relies on gifts to help meet annual operating expenses. Annual Giving helps bridge the 15% gap.
The Renbrook Fund provides resources for the operating budget, which supports everything from the latest technology and hardware, to the best teaching tools and classroom equipment, athletic and arts programs, safety and security for the campus, maintenance and upkeep, financial assistance, as well as faculty salaries and compensation (maybe the most important!)--all aspects of the school from the nitty-gritty to the inspiring.
The Board of Trustees tries to keep tuition as low as possible so as many families as possible will be able to afford a Renbrook education. Raising tuition would restrict even further the number of families who could attend the school. At the same time, we must maintain the excellence of our academic programs. Charitable contributions help us achieve both goals.
By helping to cover the gap between what it actually costs to educate each student at the school each year and tuition, your gift to the Renbrook Fund directly influences the educational experience students have at Renbrook. The availability of more resources equals access to more educational tools. It's the difference between good and Renbrook Fund you help keep tuition payments lower and your gift entitles you to a tax benefit.
We hope that every parent will be as generous as possible. In the past, donations have ranged from $10 to more than $25,000. Gifts of all sizes are needed and welcome. Every dollar makes a difference, and every student benefits.
While we rely on the generosity of leadership gifts, please realize that every gift – no matter the size – is needed and important. We truly value participation in the annual drive. The percentage of parent support is important in the eyes of foundations and major donors. It is considered a sign of institutional strength when donors see broad-based giving.
There are ways we can help. You can pledge now and defer payment until later; you can also pay in installments, if that is more convenient for you. All pledge payments must be received by the close of the Renbrook Fund, which is June 30.
Yes. When you make a gift to Renbrook, you can double or triple its impact by checking with your employer to see if they participate in a matching gift program. Many companies and foundations match the value of charitable gifts made by employees and their spouses, board members, and retirees.
Everyone in the Renbrook community. The Renbrook Fund seeks support from current and past parents, alumni, trustees, faculty and staff, past faculty and staff, grandparents and friends. Every gift matters.
A successful Renbrook Fund, supported by a large percentage of the Renbrook community, directly contributes to the experience students have at Renbrook. It also demonstrates pride in the school and reflects our belief in the education our institution provides. If you have any questions, please contact Allison Young, Director of Annual Giving, at 860-236-1661 or via e-mail.
