Brimmer relies on the voluntary support of its community to maintain excellence today and secure a vision for the future. Brimmer and May’s primary source of revenue is tuition, but tuition alone does not cover the full cost of educating each child, and the School relies on philanthropy to cover that gap.
Voluntary support for Brimmer and May comes from our generous donors including current parents, parents of alumni, alumni, grandparents, trustees, faculty, staff, and friends. Annual Fund gifts provide critical support for operations during the current school year, while endowment, capital gifts, and planned gifts provide for our future by supporting new and updated facilities as well as for endowments for financial aid, faculty salaries and benefits, professional development, and special programs.

Brimmer’s Development Office follows the CASE (Council for Advancement and Support of Education) industry standard Donor Bill of Rights and stewards all gifts, keeping our generous donors well-informed and honoring their intentions.
