The Morristown-Beard Fund
Each year, Morristown-Beard School must “close the gap” – like most other leading independent schools 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 per student – must be covered on an annual basis to prevent our School from utilizing money from our endowment or other sources.
Thankfully, strong annual support of the Morristown-Beard Fund (our School's annual fund) 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 year after year. Your tax-deductible gift to the Morristown-Beard Fund provides unrestricted support for essential programs and other areas of greatest need.
Improving the Student Experience
The Morristown-Beard Fund exists for one reason only: to improve the MBS student experience. Every dollar donated supports the expansion of academic and curricular initiatives, arts and athletics programs, and student leadership and service opportunities. While special fundraising for capital projects, endowment, and scholarship bring significant long-term benefits to our School, the Morristown-Beard Fund’s consistent support is vital to our students’ intellectual and emotional growth and our School’s financial health. Your gift enables us to surround our students with exceptional teachers, superior facilities, and cutting-edge technology.

Your gift to the Morristown-Beard Fund provides unrestricted support for essential programs and other areas of greatest need, including:

While supporting exciting capital projects, our community continues to understand the vital role of the MB Fund in our School’s future. By choosing to maintain or increase their annual giving to this fund, our community shows their commitment to bright futures for all of our talented students.
