2022–2023 Strength in Numbers
For 225 years, Milton Academy has fostered critical thinkers and changemakers, all under the guidance of world-class faculty and staff. With donors like you investing in Milton, we will continue to do so for years to come. Thank you!
Total Proportion of Budget Funded by Philanthropy
Tuition covers only 72% of a Milton education, so other sources of revenue, such as endowment revenue, help to bridge the gap. Endowment gifts help to minimize the school’s dependence on tuition and allow for long-term planning.
Financial Aid Endowed Funds
Milton Fund Totals
From $150 for one student to attend the AISNE Students of Color Conference to $5,000 to shuttle the Community Engagement Programs and Partnerships volunteers for a year, gifts of all levels to the Milton Fund provide the resources to meet the needs of Milton’s students, faculty, and staff that cannot be met through tuition or room and board alone. The Milton Fund provides a crucial 7% of the operating budget for Milton annually that meets a wide range of the school’s needs. Whether through extracurricular activities, financial aid, or resources for talented faculty members, your generosity makes a difference and fuels the essential programs that set Milton apart from other educational institutions. Thank you for your annual support.
