The Impact of Your Gift

  • Our Annual Fund contributes 5% of the school’s operating budget and impacts every student, every day.
  • Your gift ensures small class sizes, individualized attention for students, support for extracurricular activities in athletics and arts, and professional development for our talented and dedicated faculty and staff.
  • Annual giving enables us to offer financial aid that fosters community.

Where Do the Funds Go?

Our Annual Fund offers a tax-deductible opportunity to supplement tuition revenue that supports the school’s operating budget each year. Because the Board of Trustees and Head of School are committed to minimizing tuition increases while continuing to offer every student an excellent education, Our Annual Fund helps close the gap between tuition and the actual cost of a Bayside education. The majority of any school’s budget is applied to people and facility maintenance, leaving little flexibility. Unrestricted gifts are the highest form of philanthropy—they provide the Board of Trustees and school administration with the flexibility to place the money where it will serve the best purpose.

Our Annual Fund allows the Bayside community—parents, alumni, faculty, staff, trustees, grandparents, and friends—the ability to support our school.
