The Morristown-Beard Fund
The Morristown-Beard Fund exists for one reason: to build a stronger, better School for our talented, unique students.
Your support enables MBS to accomplish this by providing the funding necessary to maintain our current standards of excellence, while opening new, exciting opportunities for the future.
Each year, Morristown-Beard School must “close the gap” – like every other leading independent school in the nation. While tuition revenue covers 85% of the actual cost to educate an MBS student, the difference which remains – a gap of approximately $5,000 – must be covered on an annual basis to prevent our School from removing money from our endowment or other sources.
Thankfully, strong Annual Giving support by our Community has translated into long-standing success in closing the gap – as well as providing the critical funding for Morristown-Beard to move our School forward. The Morristown-Beard Fund doesn’t just “keep the lights on” – it proudly and actively promotes the following essential areas of our School:
- Academic Initiatives and Curriculum Development
- Student Leadership and Service Opportunities
- Faculty Support
- Student Financial Assistance
- Arts, Athletics, and Other Student Programming
As illustrated above, the Morristown-Beard Fund truly represents an opportunity for our entire Community to make a difference in the lives of both current and future students. Participate today.

Thanks to the MB Fund:
I’ve tried things I never had the opportunity to try in the past. MBS has opened many doors for me, academically and musically. I perform in the musicals, play piano in the Jazz Ensemble, and serve as Literary Editor of Mariah, the School’s literary magazine. The MB Fund has made it possible for me to discover the activities that truly fulfill me.
