As is true at all independent schools, tuition received from parents does not cover the full cost of educating Fay’s student body. 实际上, even families who do not receive financial aid still receive a significant tuition discount. In order to provide an excellent program that is accessible to many different families, Fay counts on revenue from non-tuition sources. Chief among these is The 费基金.
每年, 学校询问家长, 校友, 父母的校友, 教职员工, 爷爷奶奶, and friends of the School for philanthropic support, 每年, 约1,000 donors collectively contribute approximately 8 percent of Fay’s annual operating budget. Over the School’s long history, voluntary contributions to The 费基金 have been the lifeblood of Fay’s constantly evolving program.
Gifts to The 费基金 support every aspect of the School’s day-to-day operations, including:
- 吸引, 保留, and cultivating the best teachers (competitive faculty salaries, 专业发展)
- Maintenance and enhancement of our campus (classrooms, 操场, 艺术设施, 运动场地, 宿舍)
- Service learning projects and trips (Cradles to Crayons, Merrowvista, 社区收获, 纽约, 多米尼加共和国)
- Curricular materials and technology (microscopes, 美术用品, 铺设, 创新实验室设备)
The School’s budgeted goal for the 2021-22 费基金 is $1,711,274. It’s critical that we reach this goal, so we ask all members of the 费伊学校 community: “Please give as generously as you can!” Every gift makes a difference, and every gift is deeply appreciated.
