Annual Fund

The Annual Fund is Field’s first philanthropic priority each year. 

Like all independent schools in the region, Field depends on charitable contributions as an essential component of its operating budget. The Annual Fund provides critical income to fund Field’s program, and so impacts every student, every day. By giving you support Field’s hallmark student-centered education -- the interactive classes made up of students who are diverse in a myriad of ways whether classes and activities are in-person, hybrid, or remote.

Field’s strength comes from our shared commitment to Field's core values and the personal investment of everyone in the community to support and steward our school.

The Annual Fund supports such vital needs as: 
  • Innovative teaching and learning
  • Technology
  • Professional Development
  • Need-based financial aid
  • Facilities maintenance and improvements
The support of the Field’s parents, alumni, and friends is vitally important to our school’s ability to remain nimble and adapt to the needs of our students. Please reach to give as generously as possible to support our work in and out of the classroom.
