The Annual Fund
Contributions to the Annual Fund are what allow us to offer a Durham Nativity School education to all of our students. The fund directly impacts every aspect of our program and mission. An unrestricted gift to the Annual Fund contributes to our general operating budget and supports everything including academic initiatives, classroom projects, equipment, field trips, athletics, and salaries. Every gift to the Annual Fund matters greatly!
Annual Fund Sustainers provide Durham Nativity School with consistent, reliable support throughout the year through automatic monthly donations. It is an efficient and easy way to contribute while making a difference. You can set up monthly contributions from your debit card, credit card, or bank account. You can notify us at any time if you would like to change or discontinue your donations.
The Future Fund (Our Endowment)
The Durham Nativity School Future Fund was established in 2014 as the school’s endowment fund. The endowment fund offers the school financial stability in perpetuity as it grows, is reinvested, and the interest helps support operating costs and scholarships. In addition to the Annual Fund, we encourage gifts toward this long-term sustaining fund. Contributions to the Durham Nativity School Future Fund may be made by contacting the Development office.
