You can see the difference you are making!
Annual donations are the cornerstone of fundraising at Ashbury College. Gifts to the annual Parent Fund have a direct and immediate impact on the quality of an Ashbury education. Your donations provide critical support to allow Ashbury to maintain its challenging curriculum and rewarding co-curricular programs.
What is the Parent Fund?
At the start of every school year, our faculty, staff and coaches create a list of items they believe will make our programs better. These items make up our annual Parent Fund Priorities. Your donation to the Parent Fund will go directly to purchase items on this list, and other priorities as set out by the school. The 2012-13 Parent Fund Priorities are listed to the right of this page.
What impact did the Parent Fund have last year?
Last year, annual gifts added more than $375,000 to the school’s budget. This money was used to purchase items that directly enrich daily student life in both the Junior and Senior Schools – teaching resources, new technologies, state of the art equipment and much more.
Examples of items purchased in the past include a set of forensic skulls and a 3D printer for the science department, new digital cameras for visual arts, timpani drums, bass and a flugelhorns for our music students, wireless microphones and a video camera for our theatre program, new fitness equipment and library resources.
Where can I direct my gift?
Flexible, unrestricted funds from parents are vital to student success. By directing your gift to Headmaster’s Priorities, you enable the school to put your donation to work where it is needed most. Alternatively, you may have a vision for your gift. You may direct your support to the Junior School, the Senior School, athletics, the arts and more. Click here for a full list of gift designations.
Will my gift really make a difference?
Yes! Every gift has a meaningful and immediate impact on the life of our students. The strength of the annual Parent Fund rests on strong parent participation. At Ashbury, we strive for 100% participation. It is not the size of the gift, but that you give that counts. Together, we make a difference.
