At Emerson, like nearly every independent school and college, tuition and fees do not cover the complete cost of educating your child. The long tradition of giving from parents, faculty, alumni, and board members is factored into Emerson’s annual operating budget as what is called the Annual Fund.
The Annual Fund bridges the gap between tuition and operating expenses.
Your support makes a direct impact on the Emerson community and the quality of education every student receives. When you give to Emerson School, you help Emerson implement school improvements, provide financial aid, purchase classroom supplies and updated technology, and provide professional development opportunities for faculty and staff.
One hundred percent of Emerson’s faculty, staff, and Board of Trustees give to the Annual Fund, and we count on every Emerson family to do the same. What matters most is your participation. Each gift, no matter the size, makes an impact, and when every family gives we reach our budget and the entire community benefits.
