Open Window Fund

The Open Window Fund serves as the school’s annual fundraising priority, offsetting the full cost of an Open Window education. This includes financial aid, faculty development, hallmark trips, performing arts, and everything in between.

All members of our community are invited to support our incredible program. It takes many caring supporters to build this community, and we are so grateful for everyone who invests in our program.

Some of the things the Open Window Fund makes possible include:
  • Ensuring we have two teachers in every lower school classroom
  • Every student receiving an age appropriate device
  • All school field trips – from the pumpkin patch in kindergarten to Costa Rica in eighth grade
  • All necessary school supplies
  • $1M+ provided in financial aid
All of this is only possible because of the support from our community. Tuition accounts for about 87 percent of our total operating budget at Open Window each year. Your support makes up the difference. 
 
Every donation made to Open Window is received with great appreciation, and we ask that each family make a donation that is personally meaningful to them.

Your generous donations are put to work in the current school year and help us to continue to provide exceptional, transformative experiences for all students.

Your company’s giving program: Many area companies will match your donation. It is simple and easy, and it doubles your donation! Let us know about your match so we can keep an eye out, we do not receive notifications of pledges directly from companies.
 
Stocks and Securities: You can donate appreciated stocks or securities. This is a fantastic way to support Open Window and may offer you a greater tax advantage. Contact Molly Rubin at mollyr@ows.org for details.
 
Donor Advised Fund: A Donor Advised Fund gives you the flexibility to recommend how much can be granted to Open Window. Contact Molly Rubin at mollyr@ows.org for information.

All gifts to the Open Window Fund are tax-deductible because Open Window is a 501(c)(3) organization.
