The Annual Fund is a fundamental part of fundraising at The Country School. It is a program of giving that enables our school to make up the difference between what it collects in tuition and fees, and what it spends each year on educating students. As with most independent schools, tuition does not cover the full cost of each student’s education. This gap means that the Annual Fund is essential to The Country School’s daily operating expenses, and our ability to continue enhancing and growing our programs.
We rely on our parents and extended community to contribute as generously as their individual circumstances allow to the tax-deductible Annual Fund Program. We encourage each parent to make a gift, and every year we aim for 100% parent participation.
Ways To Give
Each year, we have an Annual Giving campaign to enable us to make up the difference between tuition and fees, and the true cost of our program.

Planned Gifts and Bequests
A planned gift (also known as a deferred or estate gift) is a wonderful way to support The Country School and may provide additional tax or financial benefits. Please consult your tax advisor for more information.
What will your legacy be? As a community, we have interwoven legacies. Much like a beautiful painting, with each brush stroke contributing a unique texture and color, the legacy of our students consists of the educated, varied legacies of each of us. Your legacy to The Country School will significantly impact the lives of future Country School students. It will be a way for you to say, “My time here has mattered.” A bequest is one way to leave a legacy.
We believe everyone has something to offer for the success of our school. Volunteering in the classroom, chairing a committee, sponsoring a table at our Gala, teaching at TCS University, or establishing an endowment for financial aid – all are welcomed and valuable contributions to The Country School’s success now and into the future.
