Annual Fund

As with most independent schools and universities, tuition does not cover the full cost of each student’s dynamic and immersive education at Bosque School.  The Annual Fund is a yearly opportunity to help close this gap and show support for the unique educational opportunities provided by Bosque School - where students are challenged to think critically, solve problems in real-life contexts and develop their skills and passion as lifelong learners.

The Annual Fund is an integral revenue source that is responsible for 3-5% of Bosque’s annual operating budget. It plays a vital role in paying for immediate needs during the school year. From student textbooks to Chromebooks, science lab equipment to lightbulbs, buses for field trips and service learning projects to teachers’ professional development, robotics tables to athletic equipment, these funds serve the everyday needs of the school.  Additionally, the Annual Fund supports need-based tuition assistance. 62% of Bosque families receive some level of tuition assistance.

This year’s goal is to raise $320,000 and have 100% Family Participation.  Active participation by Bosque families and faculty offers a testimony to prospective families and supporters that Bosque School is a community actively involved in the advancement of its mission. Additionally, charitable foundations give to organizations that demonstrate strong support from their constituency.

Every gift, in any amount, is greatly appreciated and makes a tremendous impact on the challenging education that every Bosque student receives. Please make your gift to the Annual Fund today and support everyday excellence at Bosque School. Whether you are a parent, grandparent, family friend, alumnus, or a community supporter, easily make your donation online now either as a one-time donation or as a recurring monthly contribution.
