Support Advent’s Mission

The Advent School strives to create a culture of engagement where each member contributes—by volunteering or donating funds, for example–at their capacity. As with most independent schools, tuition revenue alone does not cover the whole cost of educating each student. The Advent School is a gift-supported institution and relies on charitable giving and volunteerism to sustain the financial health and vitality of our School.

The Advent Annual Fund

The Advent Annual Fund is Advent’s top fundraising priority. Gifts to the annual fund provide the critical, current-use, and unrestricted dollars the School needs to sustain its programs and facility. The Annual Fund also supports faculty salaries and professional development. Giving at every level is important to the sustainability of the School.

Each year the School strives for 100 percent participation from the Board of Trustees, faculty, staff, and current parent communities. Parent participation in the Annual Fund makes an enormous impact on each student’s experience and symbolizes the collective investment in the School’s excellence.
