Members of the Connelly community are asked to participate in Annual Giving each year. This helps the school bridge the gap between the tuition and the true cost to educate a student. Contact the business office to make your donation.
Do the students benefit directly from my contribution?
Yes! Each student at Connelly benefits directly from the expenditures in the operating budget. Refurbishments and improvements to the buildings and grounds, as well as technical and equipment upgrades, enhance the girls’ learning experience. Salary increases promote faculty retention and enable recruitment of competent and dedicated teaching candidates when openings occur. Small class size and individual attention to each student contribute to the overall quality of our educational program.
Is there a special importance to 100% participation in the Annual Giving Program?
Yes! When opportunities arise for foundation or corporate funding, one of the first questions we are asked is how much support we receive from the families who benefit directly from their involvement with Connelly and from alumnae who have benefited from Connelly’s excellent education. If we can say that 100% of our families support the Annual Giving Program, our success in obtaining grants will be significantly increased. Your gift will help us receive assistance from private foundations and other sources outside the immediate Connelly family.
