Annual Fund

Gifts to the Brentwood Fund represent our dedication to the student experience and help to make every day at Brentwood School extraordinary. This important, collective effort brings the vision and mission of our school to life.

Our Goal

Like tuition, the amount we need to raise increases every year. This year, our Brentwood Fund goal is $3.6 Million and 100% participation! Gifts for the Brentwood Fund should be made for the current fiscal year: July 1, 2021 – June 30, 2022.

Your Gift at Work

By making a donation to the Brentwood Fund, you directly support key aspects of our school—faculty salaries and professional development opportunities to new curriculum initiatives, financial support, robust student programs, arts and athletics, extracurricular activities and clubs, and more. Gifts to the Brentwood Fund also provide excellent preparation for college and beyond, help to build a phenomenal alumni network, a valuable experience in leadership in service, and lessons for a lifetime.

Help us Hit 100% Participation

The Brentwood Fund - is the school’s top philanthropic priority because its proceeds fund almost 10% of the current year’s operating budget. Every student benefits immediately from the generosity of your annual fund contribution. We appreciate personally meaningful and generous gifts from our families each year.
