Annual Fund

Your gift has a direct impact on our students!

Since 1927, our community—faculty, trustees, parents, alumni, parents of alumni, grandparents, and special friends—have generously supported Belmont Day School and the education it provides for every student. Our students are encouraged to have intellectual curiosity, honor differences, and empower meaningful contribution with excellence, respect, honesty, responsibility, caring, and joy. Throughout our history, Belmont Day has had a strong culture of giving to ensure that it can continue to deliver an education that inspires and challenges our students.

The Belmont Day Annual Fund consists of unrestricted gifts given every academic year by the entire school community to help meet needs in the yearly operating budget. The largest item supported is faculty and staff salaries and benefits including professional development. In addition, the annual fund provides funds for other needs such as new technology, financial aid, diversity and inclusion initiatives, and new curricula.

The annual fund ensures that educational programs and thoughtful investments in faculty and facilities are maintained and strengthened for future years. The school relies on gifts of all sizes to bridge the gap between what tuition covers and the cost of a Belmont Day education. Your gift has a direct impact on our school and our students. We are grateful for your support and commitment to Belmont Day.

Last year over 475 parents, alumni, grandparents, faculty, foundations, and friends contributed to the annual fund. In recent years our school has received a steady increase in gifts from our alumni, grandparents, and friends. Parent participation in annual giving is consistently high. We are grateful for this incredible community support and commitment to Belmont Day.
