Annual Appeal

Annual Appeal

Dear Friends,

Now in its 92nd year, the Campus School of Smith College has a long and proud history of educating students, mentoring student teachers, and promoting best practices in education - and every year we raise funds to advance this work. This year we ask you to consider supporting two critical needs:

The first is financial aid. Currently we provide aid to 30% of our families. This economic diversity represents a core value of our school, and we strive to do all that we can to support it. A gift made to our financial aid fund is a powerful investment in the promise and potential of young lives and one of the most meaningful ways you can support our school.

The second need is for faculty professional development funds, which support the continued growth and development of our teachers and programs. For example, while some professional development funds allow teachers to attend conferences and workshops, others support summer grants to faculty, which is where important curricular work gets done. Simply put, your gift in support of our professional development fund helps us become an even better school.

We also welcome unrestricted gifts that help support the operating budget of the Campus School. While tuition covers 91% of our expenses and the college supports several administrative functions (human resources, facilities, utilities, technology), we still need to fill an income gap every year. Unrestricted gifts to the annual fund help us do this.

We welcome gifts of any size, and every gift supports the important work we do to teach children, support our teachers, and make the world a better place. On behalf of our school community, thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,

Chris Marblo

Head of School
