The NCRC Fund

The NCRC Fund is the school's most important source of revenue other than tuition. This unrestricted fund is a vital part of the annual operating budget and supports the school's mission in every way.

Whether you are a new parent making your first donation to an independent school, a grandparent making a gift after hearing about your grandchild’s day at school, a faculty or staff member making a gift through payroll deduction, or an alum or parent of an alum continuing to support NCRC, your generosity helps NCRC to be the preschool we all cherish.

The NCRC Fund touches every student, every teacher, every family - every day.
