Supporting Bush


Welcome to the Development Office at The Bush School!
Whether you are a current or former parent, alumnus or alumna, faculty or staff member, volunteer, or friend of The Bush School, you are a valued and important member of the school’s community. Your financial commitment to our community is what allows us to strengthen programs, update technology, maintain our facilities, and attract and retain our exceptional faculty and staff.

The Bush School is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, governed by a Board of Trustees. Charitable contributions made to The Bush School are tax deductible to the extent of the law. An independent school, Bush receives no tax or religious support. The school depends upon tuition and fees, donations, and a draw on the school’s endowment fund in order to balance its operating budget. Voluntary financial support—philanthropy—creates a partnership between the school and its community to provide the best educational opportunities for our students today and tomorrow.

Why I Give: A Culture of Philanthropy at Bush
Student Service and Philanthropy at The Bush School
Service to our community is a core value in the education of Bush students. As part of that value, students may periodically undertake fund-raising for nonprofit organizations other than Bush. Student-initiated fund-raising projects must be approved by the appropriate division director and the director of development. Generally, projects are approved unless there is a specific concern about the cause for which funds will be raised or a general concern about the number of fund-raising activities that are scheduled for a particular time period.

Please direct any questions to Director of Development Susan Radtke.
