The Madeira Fund

Gifts to The Madeira Fund help to balance the budget and allow the School to meet our short-term, annual needs. The Madeira Fund, our annual giving program, is crucial to our students' experience. From recruiting a wonderful new teacher to putting on a theatrical performance, from scholarships to athletic uniforms, from books to classroom technology, annual giving provides for an educational atmosphere that is vibrant – academically, athletically, and socially.
