Your financial contribution to The Gordon Fund supports the people and programs that make Gordon the great school that it is: talented teachers, small classes, library and instructional resources, technology advancements, enriching arts and athletics programs. Each year, a percentage of the operating budget comes from contributions that directly support every aspect of school life. Gordon relies on a combination of tuition income, charitable donations, income from auxiliary programs, and interest income to balance its annual budget.
Could Gordon operate on tuition alone? Not without looking significantly different. The School would be less innovative in our approach to education. Essentials like low student-to-teacher ratios, faculty and curriculum development, state-of-the-art technology, a rich arts program, and athletic equipment – all integral components to our rich and robust program would be compromised. Charitable gifts are a necessary part of every independent school’s healthy financial profile.
