Parent Giving: How Can You Help?

Parent donations to the Annual Fund are critical to Suffield Academy’s success. Tuition alone does not fully fund the cost of our students’ (your children’s) education. The Annual Fund closes that funding gap each year. That gap is more than $3,000 per student. The Annual Fund supports virtually every aspect of your children’s education – academic programs, student activities, athletics, the arts, financial aid, faculty compensation, and maintenance of the beautiful campus.
 
Gifts of every size demonstrate parent support for the mission and vision of the school. Parent gifts range from $25 to $50,000. We ask parents to make a tax-deductible gift to Suffield annually between July 1 and June 30. Parent volunteers write letters, send emails, and calls to parents encouraging them to support the Annual Fund.
 
Each year we try to reach 100% parent participation in the Annual Fund.
