Philanthropy at Bush

Every gift matters

Students and alumni of The Bush School consistently cite experiential learning and meaningful relationships as powerful elements of their Bush education, elements essential to them as students and in life. Tuition provides a strong financial base for The Bush School, and philanthropy at every giving level is essential to support a program that has been a leader in progressive, experiential education since 1924.

Gifts to The Bush School Annual Fund go directly to the operational budget of the school. No matter the size, gifts to the Annual Fund have a direct and profound impact on the daily lives of every student at Bush.
