Why Give

Havergal Philanthropy: Your Support is Essential

Havergal students thrive because they are supported by a community of parents, alumni, faculty, staff, peers and friends who are committed to a transformational education for girls. Together, we share the vital opportunity and responsibility of helping students become the next generation of leaders, who are equipped to make an indelible mark on our world. 

Your donation will make a difference by supporting investments in curriculum enhancement, financial assistance, special projects and many other initiatives that make our academic and co-curricular programs so exceptional.

Reasons to Give

Havergal is a not-for-profit institution and tuition covers the costs of operating expenses. It is through the generosity of our donors that we are able to deliver a truly exceptional educational journey to our students as they become confident, globally-minded leaders of tomorrow.

Every donor will have their own individual reason for making a gift. Alumni often tell us that their gift is an expression of gratitude for the experience they had as a student. Parents and grandparents wish to show appreciation for the community that is helping their children and grandchildren to thrive. Whatever the reason, your gift will impact the life of every Havergal student and create a lasting legacy.

When you make a gift to The Havergal Fund, at any level, you will have a direct impact on the daily lives of our students. The cumulative generosity of The Havergal Fund donors creates a pool of funds that support all aspects of the Havergal learning experience. A gift to The Havergal Fund is annually directed to our areas of greatest need and may include student financial assistance, faculty professional development, tools and resources to support academic curriculum innovation, efforts toward environmental sustainability, program enrichment in the arts and athletics and our focus on wellbeing.

To see the impact our community has made read our latest Annual Report:
