The Stanley Fund & Our Essential Commitments

  • Our Essential Commitment – 110%

    We all give 110% to the people in our lives – especially the children in our lives – every day. Why? Because we know that’s what it takes to foster independent thinkers and lifelong learners. We are asking the community to give 110% to The Stanley Fund, too – our number-one source of charitable dollars funding our commitment to the student experience, our professional community, our educational philosophy and our campus.

    The Stanley Fund supports our school’s strategic, essential commitments:

    • Teacher support, retention and professional development
    • British Primary philosophy and public outreach
    • Campus safety and student wellbeing
    • Equity, inclusiveness and financial access
    • Off-campus experiential learning
    • Social-emotional learning
    • Campus beautification and planning for the future


    The Stanley Fund also ensures Stanley’s long-term financial sustainability.

    As in nearly all independent schools, tuition alone does not cover the cost of a student’s education. We rely on charitable contributions to fund curricular and extra-curricular and social-emotional programs for all our students. These programs ask our staff to give 110% of themselves every day – and in return, 50% of all donations to the Stanley Fund, up to $150,000, will be matched by the Hambidge Family Challenge Grant to further support faculty compensation and wages.

    Stanley gave me a strong foundation academically while also encouraging my creative expression. I was supported for who I was while being challenged to strive for greater accomplishments.
