The Catlin Gabel Fund is essential to all areas of school life. It provides eight percent of our annual operating budget, which is only possible because of the many donors who support it each and every year.

Like most schools, the cost of tuition does not cover the full cost of a Catlin Gabel education, and like most schools, the revenue raised through gifts to the Fund is one of our most important ways to fill this gap. The Fund is a powerful resource that helps us sustain the core aspects of a Catlin Gabel education and directly supports the student experience.

Gifts to the Catlin Gabel Fund have an immediate impact on our people and our program, and they help ensure that the school can continue to attract and retain both talented and bright students and teachers.

Robust Experiential Opportunities

Through the support of donors, our robust experiential learning programs enrich the student experience at every age. Each year, our students embark on class trips, join clubs, affinity groups, or athletics teams. They have access to outdoor education programs and global trips, which are carefully planned each year to best align with student interests and school objectives.

Financial Assistance

The funds raised provide needed assistance for families and students from different socio-economic, cultural, and racial backgrounds. This means providing funding for not only tuition assistance but other essential needs, such as books, meals, and transportation. Bringing multiple lenses and experiences to Catlin Gabel enriches the experience for every member of our community.

Resources for Teachers

With classes focused on learning by doing, our teachers need access to a wide range of tools, equipment, and technology—from microscopes, books, and ipads to theater lighting, recording equipment, musical instruments, and more. Our teachers can take advantage of professional resources and development opportunities, which further enhances the classroom.
