Annual Fund

The Annual Fund is Suffield Academy’s primary fundraising campaign. Alumni, current and former Suffield parents, faculty and staff members, and friends of the school make unrestricted gifts that support all aspects of annual operations.

Support Our Annual Fund

How is the Annual Fund money used?
Unrestricted donations to the Annual Fund support every aspect of the school's operating budget including academics, financial aid, athletics, the arts, student life, buildings and grounds, faculty support and professional development—everything that makes a Suffield education one of the finest in the world! In total, the unrestricted Annual Fund accounts for 11% of the school’s operating budget.

How much should I give to the Annual Fund?
Each gift, regardless of the amount, touches the lives of our students and sends a powerful message of support for Suffield Academy. We encourage every member of our extended school community to participate in the Annual Fund and make a gift in any amount that is appropriate to their circumstances.

Did you know that tuition only covers 77% of a Suffield Academy education?
Suffield Academy, like other independent schools, receives funding from tuition, charitable gifts, and endowment income. The school relies on unrestricted Annual Fund gifts to help bridge the gap between the revenue from tuition and the actual cost of educating a Suffield student. Suffield’s Annual Fund directly supports all aspets of the school’s mission.

When do I donate to the Annual Fund?
Each fiscal year we ask the Suffield Academy community to make gifts to the Annual Fund. Our fiscal year runs from July 1 through June 30.
