Frequently Asked Questions
What is the George School Fund?
Tuition and fees cover a portion of George School’s annual operating budget. As a private school, George School does not receive funding from the state or federal government. The remaining gap is closed through gifts, endowment income, and revenue from auxiliary programs.
Who supports the George School Fund?
All members of our community—alumni, current parents and grandparents, trustees, faculty, staff, parents and grandparents of alumni, and friends—are invited to participate each year.
Why is my participation so important?
Your gift sends a powerful message about the difference George School has made for you and your family. Foundations and prospective families look favorably upon high giving participation rates because it demonstrates broad-based confidence in George School and our mission.
How do I make a gift to the George School Fund?
Your tax-deductible gift can be made online or by cash, check, credit card, or securities. Maximize your support and check if your or your spouse’s company has a matching gift program.
Gifts can be made to the George School Fund any time within our fiscal year which runs July 1 through June 30. If you have any questions, please contact the Advancement Office at 215.579.6570.
