2020-21 Annual Report | Solebury Fund
The Solebury Fund is integral to life at Solebury School. It supports so many everyday functions of our community, such as the caretaking of 140 acres of bucolic land and the department budgets for each of our academic disciplines. The Solebury Fund provides vital support for our growing athletic programs, scholarships, unique and inclusive social opportunities for our students through community events, and so much more.
By providing important operating support, the Fund keeps our school moving forward with stability and adaptability. This year, the fund was more important than ever, as the ripple effects of the pandemic continued to challenge all of our community’s resources. Keeping our campus and community safe continued to require additional support throughout the year. Thanks to the remarkable generosity of our donors, we successfully met the challenges and changes that arose throughout the school year. The Solebury School community responded to the call to support their school, continuing a trend of exceeding our goal, this year by 17%, with over $468,000 raised for the Solebury Fund.
"Solebury has given me the opportunity to be myself in an environment that isn’t trying to make me something I’m not. Solebury gives all of its students a chance to explore themselves, make mistakes, and come out the other side stronger than ever.
One of the first things I noticed [about Solebury], and something I tell every family that I tour, was that when people say they want to help you they actually mean it, and that’s not something you find in many places. Solebury is unique in that way. Many schools preach kindness and acceptance, but Solebury delivers. There is no doubt that Solebury is a place of opportunity.” - Bri Hughes ’21
Our School is fortunate to have so many thoughtful, purposeful donors throughout the decades. The cumulative commitment of all levels of donor support, from the 1925 Society to our Young Alumni Society, ensures the many essential functions of our special campus remain strong and ready to meet the needs of our future generations of Soleburians. We are so very thankful to each and every one of our supporters of the Solebury Fund, and proud to recognize their generosity.
