The Harbor Fund
Harbor Country Day School has been providing Long Island’s children with challenging, innovative, child-centered educational experiences since the school was founded in 1958. Our mission underscores every child’s experience at Harbor and ensures that all of our graduates are prepared to lead fulfilling lives filled with intellectual curiosity and confidence. The Harbor Fund enables us to honor our mission and ensures that our students are receiving the most stimulating, well-rounded education available anywhere on Long Island.
What is The Harbor Fund?
It is an annual fundraising campaign that directly supports the school’s programs – and your children – this academic year.
Why is The Harbor Fund necessary?
It is necessary because tuition income is not enough to cover our annual expenses. In fact, nearly one-third of our expenses are not covered by tuition and must be funded through other means, such as the Harbor Fund.
Who gives to The Harbor Fund?
Parents, alumni, trustees, faculty, staff, and friends are all asked to contribute. Last year 96% of our parents and 100% of our faculty, staff, and trustees made gifts.
How is The Harbor Fund used?
It supports tuition assistance, professional development of our faculty, classroom programs, the performing arts, athletics, and maintenance of the school’s building and grounds.
What is our goal this year?
Our goal this year is for 100% of our families, as well as 100% of our faculty, staff, and trustees, to make their own gift by December 31st.
How much should I give?
We simply ask that you do your best within your financial means. Every gift, of every amount, is appreciated and valued.
How do I make my gift?
We accept gifts in the form of personal checks, credit cards, and stock. You may mail it to the school office, make a gift online or contact our development office at (631) 584-5555.
Is my gift tax-deductible?
Yes, contributions to The Harbor Fund are fully tax-deductible.
