The Nichols Fund
The Nichols Fund plays a crucial role in enriching the lives of the students and faculty of Nichols School, generating 10 percent of the School’s annual operating budget. Without this essential funding, the School would have to draw from the endowment principal, eroding the long-term financial stability of the institution. Gifts made to The Nichols Fund directly impact the School today as your gifts help sustain all areas of the School including faculty salaries, academic and extracurricular programs, financial aid, and building operations. A quarter of our active alumni and 75% of parents participated in The 2016-2017 Nichols Fund, raising more than $1.125 million for Nichols School – a testament to the commitment of the Nichols community. Each and every gift to the Nichols Fund helps to maintain the financial stability of the institution. This year, we hope you’ll consider investing in the future of Nichols with your own gift to the Nichols Fund. All gifts, regardless of the size, help ensure that each and every student has an exceptional learning experience in the classroom, on stage and on the playing field, and in the community.
