      Annual Fund

The Bush School Annual Fund

The Annual Fund is a collaborative endeavor that fuels the mission of The Bush School. Every year, the collective generosity of our entire community—alumni, parents, grandparents, parents of alumni, and friends—makes a difference in the life of each student and teacher. All gifts to the Annual Fund this year will provide vital funding for Bush’s operations and will support areas particularly affected by COVID-19 including:
  • Additional and new financial aid requests from Bush families;
  • New technology and resources to support hybrid and remote learning;
  • Personnel, programs, and tools for community health & wellness;
  • Professional development for faculty to deliver engaging hybrid and remote learning.

Visual Participation: We believe that philanthropy builds and strengthens our community. This image is a visual representation of how every gift builds and strengthens the Bush community. Throughout our Annual Fund Parent Campaign, the daisy petals will be filled in with the name of each family who has contributed with a gift or pledge, bringing our community of support to life. This image will be shared in emails throughout the coming weeks until we close the Annual Fund Parent Campaign on November 13. We hope you enjoy watching it grow!

The daisy chain illustrated in the Annual Fund design is inspired by a graduation tradition dating back to the beginnings of The Bush School. Juniors weave daisy stems into a garland that they carry out to the graduation ceremony as a gift to the seniors on their final day at Bush. The chain symbolizes a collective gift, links students to the alumni community, and honors a culminating moment of working toward a shared goal.
