By design and as at most independent schools, Mark Day School's tuition does not fully fund the cost of a Mark Day School education and The Mark Day Fund helps to make up this difference. The Fund, which touches all corners of school life, kicks off each year in October, and more than 450 parents, alumni, past parents, grandparents, faculty/staff, and friends all play a part in supporting the school. All school families are asked to contribute, and every gift makes a difference because it demonstrates a commitment to meeting the school’s needs.

The Mark Day Fund supports programs such as:

  • Media literacy education
  • School plays
  • Outdoor education
  • Hosting outside speakers on campus
  • Faculty professional development
  • And more!

The 2019–2020 Mark Day Fund is led by parents Lindsay Bartsh, Ryan Brown, and Amy Carlson McConnell, and our goals are 100 percent family participation by October 31 and $800,000. The annual fund closes each year on May 31.
