Time, talent and treasure
Like most nonprofit organizations, Seabury relies on the generous support of individuals and organizations to be able to continue to provide excellence in education for our highly capable children. Contributions make it possible for Seabury to provide an appropriately challenging academic experience to a broad range of gifted children from throughout our community.
Seabury has two major fundraising activities: Annual Fund and the auction. Every fall each famliy is asked to make a tax-deductible pledge to our Annual Fund which covers the gap between tuition and our costs of educating our students. In the spring, parent volunteers put on an amazing evening of frivolity and fundraising. Our parents help by procuring auction items, volunteering on auction committees and of course, by attending.
Please consider supporting Seabury today. Seabury is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, so contributions are deductible from your taxable income to the extent allowed by law. All contributions to Seabury will have a direct impact on our ability to continue to provide excellent educational opportunities for our students.
There are a few easy ways to support Seabury by tweaking activities that you already do, such as shopping, eating soup and more. Find out how.
If you have questions, please email or call Karen Perry, our director of development, at 253-952-5944.
"We give to Seabury because we see our children come home every day excited about learning - excited about school! - and believe every child should have the opportunity to feel the same way. We consider ourselves very lucky that we are able to be here and giving is our way to help the school continue with its mission and hopefully be able to serve all children, regardless of financial circumstance."
– Christopher and Sandra Bush, parents of two Seabury students, class of 2015 and 2019
"I give to Seabury because, as a teacher who has studied gifted education, I know there is no other school that meets the needs of gifted children as well as we do; as a parent, I give to Seabury because there is no other place my son 'belongs.'"
– Ruth Maitlen, Seabury teacher and mother of a Seabury student, class of 2019
