"It is very easy to make new friends here because everyone includes you. In orientation week, you get to
become more of a  community with the rest of the school."

Contributions and income from fundraising events help to sustain the Stevens School's core educational programs. The school typically depends on contributions for 10 to 15% of its operating budget. Your voluntary support helps the Stevens School achieve its most fundamental goal: helping children and grow into caring and creative critical thinkers.

Annual Giving

Goal for 2008/2009: $10,000

Each year, parents, alumni, grandparents, past parents, staff, board members and friends together close the gap between tuition and total operating expenses. All contributions to the Annual fund are 100% tax deductible.

Specifically, the Annual Fund helps:

  • Attract and retain outstanding faculty.
  • Ensure small class size with individual attention.
  • Offer a rich curriculum.
  • Maintain a diverse student body.
  • Maintain school facilities.

Bequests and Planned Gifts

Recognizing the Stevens School in your estate planning benefits the school and can result in significant gift and estate tax savings to the individual. Some planned gifts provide lifetime income benefits to the donor. All bequests and planned gifts help the Stevens School provide a diverse group of students with a rich educational program for years to come.

How to Contribute:

Checks -- Gifts by check provide the school with funds for immediate use. Checks can be mailed to:
