Last year, the whole Burke's community came together to raise more than $1.45 million dollars. We achieved an incredible 99.7% parent participation, as well 100% participation from our Board of Trustees, our Alumnae Board, and our faculty and staff. Thank you for all of your support and a wonderful year!
For the 2019-20 school year, we are keeping our goals lofty. Our financial goal is to raise $1.45 million for this year's Annual Fund and, once again, we hope to achieve 100% Parent Participation by Thanksgiving. We hope reaching this goal will allow families to enjoy the holiday season and encourage all of us to reflect on and be thankful for the Burke's community.
The Annual Fund delivers nearly 10% of the school’s annual operating budget and supports a wide range of experiences at Burke’s. Among these are academic programs, teacher professional development, student financial assistance, and the maintenance of our classrooms and beloved 3.5-acre campus. The broad reach of the Annual Fund means that each student, family, and faculty member benefits from the dollars we raise.
Additionally, the Annual Fund helps make Burke’s accessible to a broader group of families. As a community, we believe that a diverse group of students in the classroom provides a complete and outstanding education for our girls. Each year, tuition is intentionally set at a level below the actual cost of educating a Burke’s girl, and we ask our community to help bridge this difference with a gift to the Annual Fund.
Gifts of all sizes are welcome and appreciated!
