Every gift, whether large or small, makes a difference.

Help us reach 100% in 100 days!
Our Annual Giving campaign for 2019-20 is officially underway.
Gifts from the extended Sycamore School community are crucial to the ongoing academic and financial health of the school, and ensure that Sycamore continues to provide highly gifted students with the support and education they need to become creatively productive, ethical world citizens.

The gifts raised from the community go towards everything from providing students with access to learn the latest technology in our Innovation Lab, to building new Athletics facilities and funding innovative programs and our experiential field trips, creating a life-long impact.

Every bit of support—from annual giving to SSA events, capital, and endowment—serve to advance the school’s mission and help raise each child's potential to the power of Sycamore. With your generous and loyal support, you are helping to sustain the legacy of the Sycamore community for current and future generations to come.
Thanks for contributing to the Sycamore 100 in 100 campaign with an online gift. If you would like to make a tribute gift, please list the name(s) of the honoree(s) in the comment box below.

  • What is 100 in 100 Campaign?

    The 100 Day Campaign is our 2019-20 school year flagship philanthropic campaign, during which all parents are invited to support the SSA and Sycamore School.
    By giving or pledging early, your dollars will be put to use immediately for our wonderful faculty and students. Our hope is that 100% of parents will participate by making a gift or pledge in the 100-Day Campaign. 

Philanthropic Giving

The Sycamore campus and programs enjoyed today are the result of the generosity of those who came before. Today’s Sycamore community is responsible for ensuring a strong future for the next generation of students.
 
Sycamore Fund
The Sycamore Fund supports our community by providing substantial funding for Financial Aid, Research & Development, and Program Enhancements. Tuition alone does not cover the actual cost of educating each student; gifts to the Windward Fund help bridge that gap. Like all independent schools, Windward relies on contributions to the Windward Fund every year from Trustees, parents, alumni, grandparents, parents of alumni, faculty, and staff.

Matching Gifts
Gift matching is a way to increase the value of your own charitable gift through your employer. 
 
Major Gifts, often called Leadership gifts, are large contributions, usually in the six-, seven- and eight-figures, that are used to make significant capital improvements to facilities and programs. Sycamore is deeply grateful to those with the ability to give a commitment to philanthropy who can step forward and set an example of generosity for the entire community.
 
Capital Campaign
Most independent schools conduct capital campaigns once or twice per decade in order to meet needs the school cannot pay for out of tuition funds. Campaigns support major projects such as new campus construction and renovations to maintain state-of-the-art facilities. In addition, many campaigns include an endowment component designed to support facilities and programs long into the future. Thanks to Sycamore's last Capital Campaign, completed in 2016, students today benefit from the programs and resources available in the Bhatia Lab, the Innovation Lab, a new afterschool space, and innovative technology devices.

Endowment Funds
Gifts to the endowment are an investment in the long-term financial health of Sycamore School. Endowment Funds are held in long-term investments with the principal remaining untouched, which creates a permanent source of revenue for the School. An endowment fund is structured to grow over time through reinvestment of interest and dividends earned.
