There is no independent school in New York City where tuition covers everything. In order to maintain the excellence of our program, we look to you, families past and present, as well as alumni and friends, to help us in this effort to secure our financial future.
The Special Fund. The Special Fund provides the Brick Church School with the services of a school psychologist, a language therapist, a third teacher per class in classes larger than 10 children, faculty longevity increases and bonuses, and special additions to the curriculum. It also supplements the budget for direct financial aid awards. This is an unrestricted fund.
The Faculty Fund. Funds from this permanent endowment are used to increase faculty compensation beyond what tuition can cover in order to continue to recruit and retain talented teachers.
The Lydia Spinelli Fund for Professional Development. This fund provides money for research grants, travel, and study, and pays for tuition and other costs of courses, conferences, and workshops on the latest developments in Early Childhood Education. In doing this, the fund further enhances the school’s appeal to present and future faculty and helps make it an even more exciting and stimulating place to learn.
Thank you for your past generosity. A gift of any size is appreciated. Our goal is 100% parent participation.
The Brick Church School is particularly grateful to those individuals who make leadership level contributions. A leadership gift is an individual contribution or a combination of an individual and a corporate matching gift received in the same giving year.
