| Academic Awards Ceremony 2008|
Today, the best independent schools rely on endowed income to fund important needs that tuition cannot cover. SBS must strengthen its modest endowment by dramatically increasing funds in support of students, faculty, and maintenance.
Gifts to the Stoneleigh-Burnham School Endowment secure a great opportunity for future generations and are typically designated for general support.
The Stoneleigh-Burnham School welcomes contributions in any amount, either for the Annual Fund or the Endowment and all gifts are tax-deductible. To make gifts to the Endowment, contact the SBS Development Office at (413) 774-2711.
To support students of modest means, we build endowment to provide additional scholarships funds.
- Mr. and Mrs. "E" Endowed Alumnae Scholarship - Awarded to a girl who has demonstrated above average academic ability, who is preferably but not necessarily, the daughter of an alumna and shows the potential to become a well-rounded person who will be an asset to any situation in which she may find herself.
- Dorrance Endowed Scholarship in Memory of Bonnie Benn Jesser '63S - This scholarship is awarded to a girl who has exhibited a proficiency in athletics. The successful candidate should also have a good academic record, contagious enthusiasm, an engaging smile and a background of helping others.
- C. Robert Wray Endowed Scholarship - Awarded to a girl who shows the following characteristics: high character, integrity and a genuine interest in attending SBS. She should have demonstrated talent in other areas or a specialty in an academic area. She should have the potential for making contributions in many areas of school life, including leadership.
