The Annual Fund is a fundraising campaign that supports all aspects of The Bush School's annual operating budget. The Annual Fund Family Campaign takes place for six weeks in the fall, from September 27 to November 9 this year. If you have any questions about the the Family Campaign, please reach out to any of the volunteers on this year's team. The collective generosity of our entire community—alumni, parents, grandparents, faculty and staff, parents of alumni, and friends—makes a difference in the life of each student and teacher. This year, the priorities of impact include:
Supporting a $4.8 million financial aid budget, benefitting 161 students across all three divisions
Building on our Community, Equity, and Inclusion initiatives for the whole community
Providing professional and personal growth opportunities for faculty and staff
Annual Fund pledges must be fulfilled by June 30, 2024

Families often ask, "how much should we give?" and the answer is, "whatever feels comfortable for you and your family"! Every gift makes a difference, and we thank you for considering making a gift in support of The Bush School. Below are the Annual Fund Giving Levels.
DAFs are a giving vehicle established at a public charity. These funds allow donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction and then recommend grants from the fund over time. To direct a gift to The Bush School through a Donor Advised Fund, you may be asked for the 501c3 tax ID (91-0161095).
If you are interested in making your gift with securities or stock, please see these Stock Transfer Instructions. If you would like to make a gift of Mutual Funds, please contact the Development Office to discuss additional supplemental information required to successfully complete the fund transfer.
Please remember to inform the Development Office of your stock gift. Brokers may not share that information directly with the school and we want to ensure we credit you for the donation.
Many companies offer corporate matches as a way to make your donation go even further. To explore if your company offers a matching program, please reach out to your employer’s HR representative. Please note that it can take up to 45-60 days for your gift to reach us through workplace giving programs. To discuss matching gifts at Bush or to confirm your gift, please contact Annual Giving Manager Emma Dubery or call 206.838.8821.
