A Message from the
Director of Development

Thank you for visiting the development page to learn more about how you can support The Elisabeth Morrow School.  At Elisabeth Morrow, as at all independent schools, we rely on the generosity of our community of parents, alumni, parents of alumni, grandparents and friends to complement our annual operating budget and to build our endowment.

Philanthropy is certainly part of the fabric of The Elisabeth Morrow School as it is with independent schools nation-wide.  The spirit of generosity within our community helps us connect students to learning through projects and activities that inspire a life-long “passion for learning.”  Your gift to The Elisabeth Morrow School makes an enormous impact on the teachers we hire, the curriculum they teach, the instruction we provide, the art, music, physical education, sports and the countless activities we offer.  Every aspect of EMS is touched by your generosity.

Should you have any questions or need information about donating to The Elisabeth Morrow School, I welcome your call or email.
