We are Brooks, Together!
We hope you are well and settling into the 2021-2022 school year! We are thrilled to be back on campus and for the opportunities ahead for our community. Over the past few years, our school has come together in so many ways, and one is a shared commitment to keep Brooks financially strong.
A vital aspect of our financial model, the Brooks Fund provides funds for every aspect of school. From faculty salaries and financial aid to classroom and facility needs, 12 percent of our operating budget comes from the Brooks Fund.This year we are striving to raise $2.45 million for the 2021-2022 Brooks Fund and welcome our families to support the Brooks Fund via our Brooks Together parent drive.
This school-wide annual initiative directly impacts the day-to-day experience of our students, faculty and staff.
The four primary revenue streams of the Brooks operating budget are: tuition, investment returns, external programs and the Brooks Fund. Along with our alumni donors, parents play a key role in reaching the annual Brooks Fund goal. Our goal for the year is to reach out to every family in the Brooks community to talk about your personal commitment to the Brooks Fund.
Thank you for your consideration and support of Brooks!
