A Message
from the Director of Development

Your annual gifts to the Apple Tree Fund are the single most important source of non-tuition revenue at The Elisabeth Morrow School. In a sense, all students benefit from a tuition subsidy because tuition alone does not cover the full cost of their education. The Apple Tree Fund helps EMS:

  • Attract and retain the best teachers and provide ongoing professional development;
  • Maintain small class sizes and individualized learning;
  • Encourage a rigorous curriculum for math and science;
  • Produce a wide variety of athletics, as well as exemplary performing and visual arts programs;
  • Purchase state-of-the-art technology, supplies and materials for teaching and learning;
  • Moderate increases in tuition; and
  • Provide a welcoming place for families of all backgrounds.

Simply put, gifts to the Apple Tree Fund give students access to more than what tuition alone can provide. This is a distinct advantage of independent schools, and why it is so important for everyone to contribute. No gift is too small and, every gift, regardless of size, matters!

Help us reach 100% participation this year! I look forward to hearing from you.

With warm regards,
Keith L. Wiggs
Director of Development
