  • Supporting Ancona Overview

    Donations are vital to the fiscal health of all independent schools and Ancona is no exception. Because we receive no public funding, by supporting Ancona, our families help us provide extraordinary student experiences, professional development of our amazing teachers, and help us work toward our mission of economic diversity through our tuition assistance program.

    A little goes a long way! 

    By far the biggest impact a family can have is by contributing to The Butterfly Effect: Ancona's Annual Fund. Every gift is important and participation is invaluable. The more families contribute to the annual fund, at any giving level, the larger the effect we have as a community and signal to those interested in our school our dedication to its mission.
