The Mead Fund

Every Gift Makes a Difference

The Mead community is connected in our commitment to the school’s vital mission: to inspire and challenge students to achieve deep learning and become independent, creative thinkers.

Your support in The Mead Fund validates that commitment as our school continues to raise the bar higher, setting a standard for progressive education and cultivating learning that lasts well beyond our students' academic years. 

Your gift is put to meaningful use:

  • Providing financial aid for qualified students
  • Providing competitive faculty salaries and benefits to attract and retain the best faculty possible
  • Updating existing technology for the computer and math labs
  • Equipping our classrooms, labs and library with state-of-the-art educational tools
  • Enhancing the expressive and performing arts programs

Unrestricted gifts allow us the most flexibility to use funds where the need is greatest, but you can also choose to assign your gift to any of our Academic or Expressive Arts departments, Technology or other particular area of importance to you.

Why is Annual Fund Participation so Important?

As is the case at most independent schools, tuition does not cover the full cost of a child’s education.  Families at Mead are asked to support The Mead Fund each year. Proceeds from The Mead Fund go to support a portion of the operating budget and to enrich programs throughout the school. Every dollar and every member of the community matters. Participation in The Mead Fund is as important as the actual dollars raised.

Participation is a positive signal to the community and to prospective community members as a show of support for Mead's mission and an acknowledgment of the importance of a Mead School education.  

Donations to The Mead Fund are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
