Why Roycemore?

Many parents and members of our alumni community assume that tuition covers the full cost of a Roycemore education.  The truth is, tuition only covers about 80% of our total operating costs.  If we raised tuition to a level that would cover all costs, then many of our families would no longer be able to afford to be a part of our community.

Your financial support of Roycemore will ensure that we can keep tuition levels down, while providing critical funds to maintain our unique blend of small class sizes, individualized attention and a wide range of educational opportunities.

There are many ways to show your support:

Cash gifts
Your check, made payable to Roycemore School, may be mailed to Roycemore School, 1200 Davis Street, Evanston, IL 60201. We also accept Visa, Mastercard and American Express. Please download the gift form and mail with your gift. In addition, gifts may be made online through PayPal using the "donate" button to the right.

Stock Gifts
You can deduct the full market value of appreciated stock donated to Roycemore and avoid capital gains taxes in certain situations. Please contact the development office at 847-866-6055 for instructions on transferring appreciated current assets.

Matching Gifts
Employers frequently match their employees' charitable gifts. This is a quick way to double (or even triple!) the value of your support. Check with your human resources office for forms or instructions.

Recurring Gifts
We have made supporting Roycemore even easier! Recurring gifts can be set up with a credit card or through monthly bank transfers. Please contact the development office to set up a recurring gift.

Honor/Memorial Gifts
If you have a special person you would like to remember or commemorate, the School will accept donations in his or her name and designate the gift in the annual report. Simply fill out the information on the gift form and return it with your gift or pledge. If you would like to know how to have a classroom, office, or other part of the new campus named in honor or memory of someone, please contact Joseph Wright at jwright@roycemoreschool.org.
