Building the Future: The Campaign for Arthur Morgan School

Now more than half a century old, Arthur Morgan School is looking to the future with a campaign to complete the core learning campus, to grow the endowment that funds scholarships and to keep tuition low through a robust annual fund. The combined campaign goal is $1,000,000.

Building Fund:
The new academic building will provide three fully-equipped classrooms as well as bring the library and offices to the center of campus. Our maintenance and diverse art programs of fiber, paper and wood will find a permanent home in Hopkins (built in 1965).
-$668,600 in construction costs; $643,818 already funded! In addition, professional services valued at $52,280 were provided pro bono!

Endowment Fund for Scholarship
Interest from this invested fund is used for scholarships annually. Investments are managed by Friends Fiduciary Corporation in the socially responsible Consolidated Fund and in the Quaker Green Fund. The current market value is 1.47 million dollars. As this fund grows, we can reduce tuition and foster greater student diversity.
-$280,000 in new gifts needed.

Annual Fund
Annual Fund contributions are applied towards the operating budget for the current school year. This allows us to keep tuition rates down for our student families, while still funding all program elements.

Scholarship Fund
Many of our students depend on scholarship funds to complete their financial obligation to attend AMS. The Scholarship Fund is annually used for the critical needs of our student families.

 AMS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, independent school (EIN 56-2257100). All donations are tax deductible provided no goods or services were given to you in consideration of your contribution.
