Annual Fund

With your support, Bing Nursery School will continue to set the standard for excellence in early childhood education.

The Bing Nursery School Annual Fund is critical to the financial health of Bing and helps close the gap between tuition revenue and the true cost of providing a top quality, play-based educational experience for young children.

Gifts to The Annual Fund may be designated to one of the three following funds:

The General Gift Fund

Donations to The General Gift Fund support on-going programs and operations in order to maintain the exceptional experience for Bing children and families. 

The Scholarship Fund

The Bing Scholarship Fund helps to provide tuition assistance each year to more than 20% of Bing children who otherwise would not be able to attend. 

The Endowment Fund

The Bing Endowment Fund was established to maintain an exemplary program for students, researchers, children and families and is invested in perpetuity, generating an annual income to support the programs.

In response to the COVID-19 crisis, Bing Nursery School started the Bing Emergency Fund which establishes an expendable gift fund for Bing Nursery School to support teacher and staff salaries and other school expenses in times of crisis or emergency.

All families are urged to contribute at whatever level they are capable of. We welcome gifts at any of the following levels:

  • Patrons - $25,000 and above 
  • Benefactors - $10,000 to $24,999 
  • Sponsors - $5,000 to $9,999 
  • Contributors - $2,500 to $4,999 
  • Donors - $1,000 to $2,499 
  • Friends - up to $999

Combined with tuition, these tax-deductible gifts help support the school's annual budget for current programs, provide opportunities for teacher development and enrichment, fund specialists and student assistants in the classrooms, and support scholarships for children who would otherwise be unable to attend the school.
