I already pay tuition - 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, the enrichment classes, and our dedicated teachers are just a few of the critical components supported by the NCRC Fund.

What are the available options for making a gift?

Gifts can be made to NCRC in the following ways:

  • Credit card, check, or cash
  • Gifts of stock, securities, or bonds
  • Corporate matching gifts
  • Family foundation contributions
  • Legacy giving

Who is asked to support the NCRC Fund?

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

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

NCRC is committed to attracting a richly diverse community, to hiring experienced and professional faculty & staff, and to providing the classes and programs that make NCRC what it is. We believe that a socioeconomically diverse student body enriches the learning experiences of all students, families, and faculty. Because of this belief, we strive to keep tuition as competitive and affordable 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. The Tuition Assistance Fund is supported by funds raised at The Auction, and allows families to attend our school who would otherwise not be able to afford it.

How much should I contribute?

Every gift makes a difference. 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 begins each year on July 1. The last day contributions can be accepted is June 30 of the following year (the end of our fiscal year).

For the 2017-2018 school year, the NCRC Fund runs from July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018.

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.
