The Inly Fund

Every Gift Tells a Story

Every chapter of a student’s journey at Inly is unique. Like all good journey stories, adventure takes place along the way that helps to write the narrative of their lives. Your gift to the Inly Fund supports a host of diverse experiences for students each year that create stories of self-discovery, adventure, and joyful learning.
The Inly Fund is the School’s annual giving program, which supports the creative and innovative programs that inspire real world ready learners. Like most independent schools, tuition alone does not cover the full costs of operating Inly School. Charitable giving to Inly provides 6% of the yearly operating budget — supporting teacher salaries and professional development, computer and science equipment, library resources, classroom materials, student financial aid, and more. Gifts of all sizes make a tremendous impact on students and faculty at Inly.
