Why Giving Matters

Bancroft has stood the test of time because of the generosity of its own community. Whether you're supporting the Bancroft Fund which has a significant impact on the student experience, or the 'Out In Front' capital campaign that is funding major capital projects to keep Bancroft thriving for years to come, you are making a difference in the lives of our students when you donate. 

 

TWO WAYS TO MAKE AN IMPACT

Bancroft Fund

What is the Bancroft Fund?

Bancroft School is a registered non-profit organization and holds 501(c)(3) status in accordance with state and federal laws. Like other non-profit organizations, independent schools rely on charitable contributions from the communities they serve, both present and past, to offset costs not covered by tuition. Each year Bancroft asks members of our community, including trustees, alumni, current and past parents, grandparents, faculty and friends, to support the ongoing operations of our School with a contribution to the Bancroft Fund. 

Contributions to the Bancroft Fund support every facet of our community. Your gifts help the School to attract and retain our talented faculty, equip our scholars, athletes, and artists with the tools they need for success, and to offer financial assistance to deserving students.
