Tradition of Giving

Throughout Applewild’s history, each generation of parents, trustees, faculty & staff, alumni, and friends of the school have given back to our community, both financially, and with time, effort, and heart. In order to continue our amazing educational programs, maintain and improve our facilities, and continue to organize all of the special Applewild traditions that make our community unique, we depend on your support.

Annual Fund | Crocker Society

Annual Fund

The Annual Fund does not build new buildings or launch new programs.  The fund provides unrestricted resources to enhance all academic disciplines, athletics, and the performing and fine arts.  The fund supports the recruitment and development of Applewild faculty and the maintenance of our facilities. Your generosity to the Annual Fund subsidizes every part of the Applewild experience and every child is an important beneficiary.

Your Donation Matters

Tuition alone does not cover the cost of educating a child at Applewild. The shortfall is made up from several sources including endowment, interest income and other school programs, and, most importantly, unrestricted contributions to the Annual Fund.

2019–2020 Annual Fund

We are especially grateful for the many ways our community continues to support our school. Your donation, large or small, supports every student and helps continue the strong traditions that make our school so special. If you or your spouse work for a company with a matching gift program that includes elementary schools, your gift could be doubled! See a complete list of companies participating in matching gift programs.

Participation & Goal

Applewild is fortunate to receive contributions to the Annual Fund from parents, trustees, faculty and staff, alumni, grandparents, parents of alumni, former trustees, former faculty and staff, friends of the school, vendors, businesses, and matching corporate donations.

Please help shape the future of our students at Applewild by supporting the Annual Fund.  No gift is too small to help us reach our goal.


Crocker Society

The Crocker Society was established to honor those who, like the founders of our school, the Crocker family, have shown their generosity, commitment, and foresight by making a planned gift to Applewild.

Planned gifts come in many forms. Some easy ways to make a planned gift include naming Applewild in your will or as a beneficiary of your life insurance or retirement plan.

If you do choose to support Applewild in this way, thank you! Please notify us that you have done so (we don’t need to know the specifics of your gift) and we will welcome you to the Crocker Society. Your name will forever be included as a member of the society. We will, of course, honor requests to remain anonymous as well.
