Philanthropy at Field

The Field School is grounded in the dignity of each person; every voice is heard. We know that we are stronger when we join together working towards a common goal. We invite you to join our community and add your voice to support our students in a transformative educational experience. Your participation elevates our school community. Philanthropy augments a student’s Field education by deepening educational opportunities and co-curricular activities. Creating a culture of philanthropy—where families step forth to support Field through The Field Fund, volunteering, and engagement—makes our community stronger. We thank you in advance for your generosity.

Your participation in events and activities builds and strengthens our school community. We invite you to join us at our Dare to Be Field spring event, grade-level events, alumni gatherings, and bi-yearly Arts Showcases.

The Field Parents Association (FPA) builds community among parents through engagement with each other and the school–in support of Field’s mission. The FPA welcomes volunteers to support our community through committees.
