In Lieu of Tuition
In lieu of tuition revenue, Conserve School relies on tax deductible donations from the families of its students, its alums, and its friends, to the Conserve School Annual Fund each year.
During the year students attend, Conserve School encourages families to donate the amount that they would have been willing to pay in tuition, had Conserve School put them through a financial aid process.
When considering the size of a first year gift, families are asked to consider the value received from a Conserve School semester in comparison to other opportunities such as summer camps and vacations that the family has previously spent money on.
During the year that their child attends, it is Conserve School’s hope that most families will be able to donate at least $2,000 to the annual fund. It is hoped that families with greater means will consider a donation of at least 4% of their yearly income up to Conserve School’s full tuition value of $25,000.
It is Conserve School’s hope that most families, alumni and friends will join Conserve School’s “Inspiration Leaders” campaign by donating at least $120 / year to the Conserve School annual fund.
Through the Conserve School Annual Fund individuals are able to partner with Conserve School and insure that Conserve School will be able to inspire young people to environmental stewardship through academics and engagement with the forests, lakes and wildlife of Lowenwood in perpetuity.
Conserve School is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization (EIN 36-4140938) and as such donations are tax-deductible within the guidelines of U.S. law.
