Supporting Bush


Welcome to the Development Office at The Bush School!
Students and alumni of The Bush School consistently cite experiential opportunities and meaningful relationships as the most lasting impact of their time at Bush. While tuition supplies a strong financial base for these and other elements of The Bush School, philanthrophy enables an increased school-wide commitment to the unique aspects of The Bush School that stick with students their entire lives. Gifts to the Annual Fund or any of the philanthropic funds in place at Bush bolster a program that since 1924 has been a leader in progressive, experiential education.

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.
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.
