Giving

Donors play a crucial role in supporting the School's mission, helping to bridge the gap between tuition income and the cost of running a preeminent learning institution.

Every gift matters, and helps make a difference to our community. As a donor, you help provide students with greater access to financial aid and help enrich their educational experience. More than 50% of students receive some form of financial aid directly from the School, while small-value, secondary grants allow students to participate in exhibitions, conferences, and other off-site experiences. Donors also ensure our facility, from its workspaces to its classrooms, offers an enhanced learning environment for students.

We're recognized as an Accredited Charity by the Better Business Bureau, having met all 20 standards of ethical business practices.

We believe in transparency, and that all donors should have access to information about the School, their gift, and any other relevant information. We support the Donor Bill of Rights, and our Annual Report provides a full listing of all NBSS income and expenses.
