      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 on our campus. Gifts to the Annual Fund at all levels go directly to programs, curriculum, teacher salaries, classroom supplies and equipment, and much more. Beyond the very important philanthropic dollars The Bush School raises each year, each donor’s participation reflects the strength of our community and a shared commitment to our students.

At The Bush School, our parents participate in an abbreviated Annual Fund campaign. Each fall, we seek 100% parent participation over the course of several weeks by involving our full community in a fun participation challenge.

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.
