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 500 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 2017–2018 Annual Fund is led by parent co-chairs, and our goals are 100 percent family participation and $760,000. The annual fund closes each year on May 31.
