Who is asked to support the NCRC Fund?

Parents, trustees, alumni, parents of alumni, grandparents, past trustees, faculty and staff, and friends of NCRC all support the NCRC Fund. The success of the NCRC Fund depends on the participation of the entire community.

If I have paid tuition then haven't I done my part to contribute?

Like most independent schools, tuition fees pay for a portion of, but not all the costs of, running our program. The Child Development Team, our dedicated teachers, the enrichment classes, and more are all critical expenses to providing the NCRC experience.

Why not just raise tuition instead of having an NCRC Fund?

NCRC is committed to attracting a richly diverse community, to hiring an experienced and professional faculty and staff, and to continuing to provide the classes and programs that make NCRC special. We believe that an economically diverse student body brings valuable learning perspectives to everyone’s NCRC experience; therefore, we must keep tuition as competitive and affordable as possible for as many families as possible.

How is the NCRC Fund different from the Auction?

The NCRC Fund is a vital part of the school's annual operating budget, supporting the mission each and every day. Gifts to the NCRC Fund are unrestricted and used to maintain and enhance current programs and facilities this school year.

NCRC's Tuition Assistance Auction is dedicated exclusively to providing funds for tuition assistance at NCRC. Along with the Tuition Assistance Fund, the auction allow families to attend our school who would otherwise not be able to afford it.

How much should I contribute?

Every child makes a difference. So does every gift. Without strong participation and support, NCRC would not be the school it is today. We ask all members of our community to support the NCRC Fund at a level commensurate with their giving ability.

Are contributions to the NCRC Fund tax deductible?

Gifts to the NCRC Fund are tax-deductible as allowed by law.

How long is the NCRC Fund campaign?

The NCRC Fund campaign begins each year on July 1, and the last day contributions can be accepted is June 30 - the end of our fiscal year.

Can I write a contribution from my company?

Yes, corporate contributions are accepted. Some members of the NCRC community also secure matching gifts from their employer.
