Your Impact

Philanthropy isEssential

Tuition provides a strong financial foundation for Shore, and philanthropy at every giving level is essential to support our students, faculty, and programs. No matter the size, your gift has a direct and immediate impact on the daily lives of every student at Shore.

Your Impact: The Shore Fund

Like most independent schools, our tuition does not cover the full cost of educating each student—The Shore Fund helps bridge this gap. Without The Shore Fund, maintaining the same level of excellence would require the school to more than triple its $24M endowment. 

Gifts can be directed to the following components of Shore’s mission. We’ve provided examples of the impact you have in each area—and there are plenty of additional examples, too!
