The St. Hilda's & St. Hugh's Fund is the school’s annual giving program. It provides resources far beyond what tuition dollars alone can offer to enrich the learning experience of each student. From our generous financial aid program to faculty salaries and professional development to the materials and supplies that enhance each lesson, community support of the annual fund ensures that we can continue to make every day vibrant and meaningful.
For the past 11 years, the Fund has achieved 100 percent parent, faculty, staff, and trustee participation. This remarkable commitment to the purpose and values of St. Hilda’s & St. Hugh’s—coupled with the generosity of our broader community of alumni, parents of alumni, grandparents, friends, and foundations—not only supports the daily needs of the school but also the vision for moving it forward. Join us to make remarkable things possible for our students—today and in all the days to come.

The core of our mission is to make a St. Hilda's & St. Hugh's education accessible to qualified children from all socioeconomic backgrounds. Nearly 20 percent of the school’s operating budget is dedicated to financial aid, providing tuition assistance to 25 percent of the student body. Your annual fund dollars help support this program.
Field trips enhance and supplement our rich curriculum. Trips to museums, interactive farms, overnight trips to Mystic, Philadelphia, Washington, and Boston, all create memorable and tangible experiences that reinforce classroom learning and personal growth. Your gifts to the St. Hilda’s & St. Hugh’s Fund provide these valuable growth experiences for every child.
Movement for early childhood students and daily P.E. and athletics for senior kindergarten through eighth grade are essential to our program. Lifetime sports, equipment, uniforms, and bus and field rentals for our competitive sports teams give our upper school students opportunities to develop a healthy approach to wellness, which is further enhanced by our locally sourced lunches. Your annual fund dollars support this integral part of our program.
Our technology program reinforces what students are learning in the classroom and gives them the opportunity to safely explore the world available through technology. The annual fund provides faculty training that allows teachers to stay informed with the fast-paced advances in educational technology and supports the purchase and maintenance of new, updated equipment.
