From its founding in 1899 Hackley’s ideal has remained constant: an inclusive, supportive place with inspirational teachers and coaches.
The Hackley community’s strong culture of philanthropy makes it possible to admit students of character, intellect and accomplishment regardless of their families’ ability to pay. It assures that our community prioritizes diversity of perspective and enables the hiring of visionary, ethical and dedicated teachers and coaches. The Annual Fund supports Hackley’s greatest operating needs, including faculty compensation, financial aid, arts, technology, athletics, and campus maintenance. Annual Fund gifts act as a vote of confidence, demonstrating that parents and alumni support Hackley’s tradition of excellence. Gifts of unrestricted dollars to the Annual Fund are critical in meeting Hackley’s daily needs and provide a crucial bridge between tuition revenue and the actual cost of running the School.
