The Annual Fund is a vital component of Shipley's financial stability, supplying more than $1.5 million in unrestricted revenue to the School each year. Your Annual Fund gift supports every teacher and student, as well as all curricular and extra-curricular programs. With strong Annual Fund support from the Shipley community, we can continue to provide the excellent education for which Shipley is known.
Your generosity is important: Though they represent only 12 percent of all Annual Fund donors, members of The Leadership Council contribute approximately 80 percent of the Annual Fund total each year. Membership begins with a gift of $1,894. Now it’s easier than ever to be a member, with the ability to make a recurring credit card gift to pay your generous pledge over a number of months.
Your participation matters: Every gift is appreciated, and high participation demonstrates the commitment of the Shipley community to supporting our teachers and students. Your gift will be counted towards participation in all the groups of which you are a member—parent, alumni, etc.—and in all the class years in which you have a child—2016, 2020, etc.
Please make your gift by June 15. For more information about Shipley’s Annual Fund, please contact:
