Annual Fund

Why Give to the Annual Fund?

Tuition alone does not cover the actual cost of educating each student. More than 25 percent of the actual cost of a PSS/PSK education is subsidized by the Annual Fund. All Annual Fund gifts are spent within the same fiscal year they are raised.

The Annual Fund directly invests in the students of PSS/PSK by:

  • Attracting and retaining the most talented and skilled teachers and staff

  • Providing financial aid for qualified students

  • Bridging the gap between what tuition revenue covers and the actual cost of educating a Park Street School and Park Street Kids student

  • Ensuring a socio-economic, geographically-diverse student body

  • Maintaining our historic, state-of-the-art facilities

  • Furnishing curriculum materials and additional resources

Participate — Your Gift Makes a Difference

Giving to the Annual Fund is an opportunity for you and your family to invest in providing a quality education and foundational experience for each child who walks through the doors at Park Street School and Park Street Kids.

We count on everyone to contribute and show their support for the school’s mission, growth and stability. Your gift regardless of size makes a big impact. Many individual donors, as well as foundations and corporations, look for a high participation rate from the school’s community when considering their own financial support.

An outstanding 90 percent of the families of our current students gave gifts to the Annual Fund in 2011-2012. Park Street School and Park Street Kids would not operate without the help of the more than three hundred gifts from our families and friends — and we are grateful for their support!

Founders’ Associates

Every year PSS/PSK relies on a special circle of donors to play a critical role in supporting our school. Annual leadership gifts lay the foundation for our students’ experience.

More than 80 percent of our Annual Fund total gift income is comprised of gifts made by Founders’ Associates, Brimmer Street Associates and other leadership contributions. These generous individuals are absolutely crucial to our mission. Make your impact on Park Street School/Park Street Kids — join our Associates today.
