Annual Giving

Like most independent schools, Burgundy relies on the funds raised by Annual Giving to help pay for budgeted operating expenses. By design, tuition does not cover all of the expenses of a Burgundy education; to raise tuition to do so would quickly price the school out of the market.

From financial aid to athletic uniforms, from books to classroom technology to putting on a wonderful theatrical performance, Annual Giving provides for an educational atmosphere that is nurturing and vibrant.

Every gift to Annual Giving makes an impact on the lives of Burgundy students and teachers. Your ongoing support of Annual Giving is absolutely fundamental to Burgundy’s success, and your gift may be used to support program enhancements and signature programs, including:

  • Faculty Enrichment - Enabling faculty members to grow and share professionally throughout their careers
  • Financial Aid - Providing the resources to enroll a student population that is highly diverse, talented and motivated to succeed in Burgundy’s unique community.
  • Environmental Science and Sustainability - Ensuring Burgundy’s continuing and developing leadership in environmental science education and sustainability for the future.
  • Experiential Education - Inspiring personal creativity and individual expression, as well as providing distinctive educational experiences designed to broaden the breadth and depth of student learning.
  • Fine and Performing Arts - Offering distinctive opportunities for students to explore their passion, talents and creativity.
  • Library and Technology - Sustaining a superior learning environment and supporting proficiency in a technologically advanced world by providing current hardware and software, as well as the finest technology curriculum, so that Burgundy students are at the leading edge of the technology revolution.

All that students and faculty members do when they are on campus -- in the classroom, on the playing field or in the art studio -- is made possible by gifts to Annual Giving.
