Special Funds

EB has several funds that do not contribute to EB’s annual operating revenues. Instead, they are designed to address specific long-term concerns or to support the long-term economic well-being of the school.

Fund for the Future

Every year during the Auction, there is a special “Fund for the Future” dedicated to raising money for a specific need for the school. This year, we are excited to be raising funds for the enhancement of our performing arts and music spaces, at both the Lower and Middle Schools.

 

2018 Grade 8 Class Gift to the Endowment

The Class Gift to the Endowment fund was created in 2008 with the goal of instilling a culture of philanthropy among our 8th grade students, as they give back to EB in their final year. For the last nine years, the parents and students of the graduating class have continued this legacy.

 

The Silver Jubilee Endowment Fund

This endowment fund was created in 2003 in celebration of the school’s 25th anniversary through the generosity of founding families, alumni families, and other key donors. The fund provides a source of permanent financial security for the school. The graduating class of 2008 started a tradition of making an 8th grade class gift to the endowment. The 8th graders create an innovative fundraising project and donate the proceeds — together with donations from families — to grow the endowment for future generations at EB.

 

The Fund for Excellence

Created in 2015 by alumni parents John Rosenthal and Sally Drach, this endowment fund supports specific expenses intended to enhance the educational experience of EB students, including faculty and staff development, visiting artist programs, and purchases of extraordinary materials to enhance the classroom experience. 

 

The Field Mithoefer Financial Aid Fund

This fund is  used to assist current families who encouter unanticipated financial difficulties. The funds supplement and enhance more significant financial aid programs that are a part of the school’s annual operating budgets.

 

The Jeannette Rouger Professional Development Fund

Created in 2008 in honor of EB’s first Head of School, this fund supports excellence in teaching by increasing opportunities for our teachers and staff to learn and grow in their profession. Our teachers are at the heart of EB’s mission of excellence in bilingual education; their profesional growth and development is the fuel that propels great teaching and learning.
