The Shore Fund

Loyalty and Leadership

Your Leadership Inspires Us

Generous support from members of Shore’s Leadership Giving Societies makes a powerful impact each year. With gifts ranging from $1,500 to $50,000 and more, leadership donors stretch their giving to help sustain excellence at Shore and inspire others in the community to make Shore a philanthropic priority. More than ever, fueling Shore’s inspired mission and providing an unparalleled experience for students require leadership level giving from those who are able. Nearly 89% of The Shore Fund’s total dollars raised came from 108 leadership donors in 2020-2021. We are deeply grateful for this critical support from our community!

“As an alumna, I started giving back to Shore right out of college, to stay connected to the school. Thirty years later, our kids have had a great experience here—the opportunities available to them are one in a million. Staying involved and giving back just seem like the right thing to do.”—Emily Brown Thorne '81, P '19, '20
