Drew believes strongly in the power of young people and works continuously to create a positive and productive environment for our students as they develop their individual voice.
The Annual Fund is the primary fundraising initiative at Drew and is vital to fulfilling Drew's mission. As at most independent schools, tuition only covers part of the cost of our exceptional programming. We turn to our community for its help to bridge the difference between tuition and the true cost of educating each student.
The Drew community generously gave nearly $800,000 to the Annual Fund in 2022-2023. Your contribution, no matter the size of the gift, has a direct impact on today’s students, faculty and staff and the impact they will make on our community and beyond. The annual fund ensures competitive salaries for our teachers, a robust tuition assistance program for four out of ten of our students, and the ability to provide innovative, experiential programming.
Each year, we seek to reach 100% participation from current parents, faculty and staff, and our Board of Trustees.
