  • Everyday Effortless Fundraising: Scrip is now called Everyday Effortless Fundraising and that’s exactly what it is! As you go about your regular, everyday purchases, The Hartsbrook School automatically receives a percentage of the money you spend. Here’s how it works.
  • Amazon Smile: If you’re shopping from home this week, please consider adding us as an Amazon Smile partner. It costs nothing to you and is an ongoing help to The Hartsbrook School.
  • Join community members who have included us in their legal will: You can support The Hartsbrook School forever without paying a cent today using this free will-writing tool. It is an honor for us to recieve financial gifts in this way. And, your gift sustains our mission of nurturing the unique being of each child and awakening clarity of thought, warmth of heart, and strength of purpose.
  • A gift of stock or appreciated securities may offer you significant tax benefits. You are entitled to claim a charitable contribution deduction for the full fair market value of the donated stock or securities on the day they are delivered or transferred to the School. You will avoid capital gains tax liability for the appreciation in value for securities transferred directly to the School. When stock brokers make a stock transfer the name of the donor is not passed on along with the transfer, and we want to ensure we can appropriately thank you – please alert us of your stock or securities donation by contacting Development Office, development@hartsbrook.org. Your broker will need the The Hartsbrook School account number at Vanguard Brokerage Services (50295732) and the DTC number (0062). Please plan ahead as transactions may take up to five (5) business days to complete. The transfer must take place prior to December 31st in order for it to be recorded as a donation in this tax year. Therefore we recommend that you initiate the stock/security transfer no later than December 24. Stock Gift Form.
MEMORIAL FUNDS

The Hartsbrook School’s Bergen Diaz Endowed Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in 1996, in loving memory of Bergen Diaz, ‘94.

These funds are endowed and use of them restricted to providing emergency tuition support for families who are unexpectedly unable to continue to pay their tuition commitment. The interest yielded annually from the Bergen Diaz Endowed Memorial Scholarship Fund helps The Hartsbrook School best support students experiencing financial instability while strengthening the school’s future financial sustainability and resiliency.

The Hartsbrook School offers Farm Camp in one week sessions throughout the months of July and August. The Farm Camp program offers an immersive farm experience for children ages 4 through 15. Days include purposeful work on the land and with the animals, song and games, and quiet restful times.

The Dwyer Family Memorial Scholarship was founded in 2019 with the support of the Dwyer family as a living memorial for their beloved son and our former camper. The intent of this scholarship is to make Farm Camp possible for all children who wish to attend regardless of financial capacity.

SPECIAL INTEREST SCHOLARSHIP FUNDS

One of the unique and wonderful things about the student experience at The Hartsbrook School is how highly valued music is in the educational process. All students in our school sing, study music literacy, and play an instrument. Starting in grade four when students graduate into the strings program, students begin choosing and renting their own instruments. While this is an exciting transition, it can be financially challenging.

To help support our families, the school has an Instrument Rental Scholarship Fund, which donors can contribute to at anytime throughout the year. All monies in this fund go towards helping families in need offset instrument rental costs. We are deeply grateful to our generous donors from years past. What a joy it is to give the gift of music!
