Ways to Give and Gift Designation


Gift Designation

Your gift to the Annual Fund can be designated to one of the three main areas the Annual Fund helps support:

Supporting Excellence in Hathaway Brown Faculty

Faculty Professional Development is valued as an essential tool in ensuring the continuous growth and well-being of the entire school community, including students. Several recent studies have shown that teacher development promotes student learning and increases resiliency, information permanence, and the motivation of students. Participating in conferences, workshops, and mentoring programs helps keep faculty vital and engaged.

 Providing financial support for access to Hathaway Brown

Because tuition at HB for the Upper School is more than $25,000, not every family can afford sending their child to school here. HB’s financial aid program provides tuition support to 34% of HB students. A strong financial aid program makes for a better school by allowing HB to enroll the very best students, in addition to assuring a more socio economically diverse student body.

 Supporting the Institute for 21st Century Education

The Institute is a collection of opportunities and is a new way of thinking about the kind of school students need to be difference-makers in the world. It is a collection of nine programs that aims to unleash a student’s creativity, imagination and passion.  The centers speak to pressing issues in today’s world: Civic Engagement, Sustainability, Girls’ and Women’s Leadership, Global Citizenship, Business and Finance, and Science Research and Engineering.

 You can also make a gift in honor of any past or current faculty or staff member.  All Annual Fund gifts that do not have a specific designation go to the area of greatest need at the School.
