The Annual Fund is the foundation of Emerson’s fundraising program. The term “annual gifts” refers to the contributions you and your fellow Emerson parents make in support of the school’s operating budget. The financial health of the entire school depends on these gifts. Because every year brings new challenges and new opportunities, we hope that all parents will become annual donors to Emerson. What matters most is your participation: each gift, no matter the size, makes an impact.
Gifts made by past donors to the Annual Fund are directly contributing to your child’s Emerson experience today. Our supporters have made a commitment to the future, enabling us to meet new challenges and seize new opportunities as they arise—sustaining our outstanding academic, athletic and arts programs as well as funding maintenance, faculty salaries and professional development.
Annual Fund Gifts Make a Difference

- Software programs ($7,100)
- High speed wi-fi improvements ($30,800)
- Laptops ($19,300)
- Faculty development and continuing education ($59,000)
2012-2013 Annual Fund a Great Success!
Once again, we extend our thanks to the many members of our community who contributed to the Annual Fund this year, from July to June!
We are pleased to announce that we raised $197,306, including more than $30,000 donated at the Auction for financial aid.
Equally important to the funds raised, is the percentage of our parent community that participates in the Annual Fund. In our 2012-2013 fiscal year, 100 percent of our faculty and staff, 100 percent of our Trustees, and 62 percent of current families stepped forward to do their part.
Our 2012-2013 Annual Report was published in October, 2013, and includes details on our funds raised through the Annual Fund and Auction, lists of our donors, and highlights from the 2012-2013 school year.
