The Meadowbrook Fund
The Meadowbrook Fund is the school’s annual fund, which runs from July 1 - June 30, and represents the single most important way for parents, alumni, parents of alumni, grandparents, faculty, and friends to support Meadowbrook. We ask all community members to prioritize the Meadowbrook Fund while considering additional philanthropic opportunities.
Donations are used in the year they’re given, directly impacting the lives of today’s students and faculty. While supporters may choose to designate their Meadowbrook Fund contribution to one of the below areas, unrestricted gifts have the most significant impact as they allow Meadowbrook to seize promising opportunities and meet our students’ and teachers’ most pressing needs in real time.
Meadowbrook’s endowment is our most essential resource for the future. With a current value of approximately $19.4M as of June 30, 2022, we aspire to grow this stable source of funding so that it can better support our financial sustainability.An endowed gift is a long-term investment in Meadowbrook. Only 5% of the endowment’s earnings is spent annually for the purpose you designate. By making a gift to the endowment, you are investing in the future of our school, our students, and our faculty.
Donors can make a gift to one of our established endowment funds, like our Financial Assistance Endowment, or establish a new named endowed fund with a gift of $100,000 or more. For more information on our endowment and the lasting impact that you can have here, please contact Michele Daly, Chief Advancement Officer, or contact Matthew Fishbein, Director of Development.
A planned gift to Meadowbrook is a long-term investment in the future health and vitality of our school. When you include Meadowbrook in your estate plans, you help ensure that Meadowbrook can continue to know, love, and challenge every child in the years ahead. At the same time, by taking advantage of tax laws that encourage philanthropy, planned gifts can also significantly reduce estate-tax burdens.
For more information about planned giving opportunities including bequests or gifts of life insurance or retirement plans, please contact Michele Daly, Chief Advancement Officer, or contact Matthew Fishbein, Director of Development.
