Help Us Hit 100% Participation for the Brentwood Fund! It will show our communal strength.

Thank you for your ongoing investment in our community! The Vibrant and Inspiring Brentwood School experience that we value is dependent upon more than just tuition dollars alone. The dedication of our school community through volunteerism and philanthropy helps to sustain the Brentwood School that we all love. We count on each and every family to embrace the spirit of generosity by participating through the three buckets of philanthropy:

As an independent, 501(c)(3), not-for-profit organization, we depend on the partnership of everyone in our community to help provide the vital components that allow us to effectively deliver our mission to our students—excellent academic, athletic, and artistic programs, dedicated and intellectually curious teachers, appropriate facilities, and a diverse and interesting peer group.

Each and every year, we ask enrolled families to help us shape a future with meaning at Brentwood School by supporting the following:

The Brentwood Fund

Is the school’s top philanthropic priority because it provides 10% of this year’s total budget. Every student benefits directly from your generosity. By making a donation to the Brentwood Fund you’re directly supporting key aspects of our school, such as financial aid, professional development opportunities for our teachers, robust student programs, arts and athletics, an innovative curriculum, among many other opportunities. 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.

Our Goal

Like tuition, the amount we need to raise increases every year. This year, our Brentwood Fund goal is $4.2 million and 100% participation!

The Importance of Participation

Your gift is both a symbol and a tangible vote of confidence. It enables the leadership of the school to move forward with plans for the year. When our entire community embraces participation and generosity, we create the Brentwood School experience that we all value and treasure.

The Decision to Give

Giving is something you should feel good about! Your gift each year is an affirmation of the value of the educational experience at Brentwood. Families often begin at one giving level, and as circumstances permit, or as other children are admitted, increase their giving accordingly.
