Ways to Give

There are several ways to contribute to the school and we are happy to talk with you about any questions or ideas you have related to supporting Foote.

The Foote Fund helps annually to bridge the gap between tuition and the cost of educating each Foote student. Your gifts support day-to-day operations—from classroom, lab and library materials to technology, campus maintenance and financial aid.

Endowed funds provide stable and sustainable support for Foote in perpetuity. An allocation is drawn annually from interest earned. The annual distribution is used to support the purpose designated by the donor(s). The school's endowment currently totals $10.4 million.

In celebration of Foote's Centennial and to ensure the school's strength in its second century, the Centennial Campaign: Securing Foote's Future, has established the ambitious goal of doubling Foote's endowment from $10 million to $20 million.

Planned gifts such as bequests or charitable trusts can help secure Foote's future and may have additional financial benefits for the donor. The Foote School welcomes gifts made through different planned giving arrangements.

Fourth graders spend weeks sculpting clay candle houses in art class. For a few glorious moments, their creations light up a darkened Sandine Theater as part of a winter-themed celebration.

Your time at Foote—what you've learned here, everyone who's taught you—will give you confidence to be yourself and to know that you have the tools to succeed, no matter how you come to define success."
