Annual Fund Frequently Asked Questions​​​​​​​


EB’s Board of Trustees is committed to keeping tuition competitive. One way to accomplish this is to increase revenue through gift income, a standard practice at all US independent schools. Currently, the Annual Fund provides approximately 3% of EB’s operating budget, which is roughly 6% lower than other average Bay Area independent schools. Annual Fund gifts can be advantageous for families as they are:

  • Tax deductible
  • Adjustable to each family’s financial comfort
  • Eligible for corporate matching
  • A demonstration of community support to outside foundations, donors, and grant providers

The Development Office is pleased to answer any questions you may have about the Annual Fund, or to assist you in making a donation. Contact:
