Donor information does not always transmit with electronic transfers, therefore, it is important that you advise your broker to name you on a trailer on the transaction and notify Laura Booze, Director of Advancement Services, by phone at 540.687.4517 or via email at email@example.com. This will help ensure our ability to promptly identify and acknowledge your gift when it is received.
Donors who wish to contribute to the Annual Fund or Capital Campaign but do not wish to make an immediate payment may instead make a pledge.
A pledge is a promise to make a specified payment within a specific period of time; for the Annual Fund, it is the fiscal year (July 1 to June 30).
Pledges can be made online, by mail, email, or phone. The Office of Institutional Advancement will mail pledge reminder letters and pledge forms during the fund year. Please call the Director of Advancement Services Laura Booze at 540.687.4517 should you have any questions or wish to make a pledge over the phone.
Whether in the form of bequests, trusts, annuities, pooled income, or property interests, planned gifts ensure that Foxcroft will retain and attract inspiring teachers, design and implement rigorous and creative educational programs, offer much needed financial aid to prospective students, and carefully maintain and augment buildings and grounds as needed. Please visit the Planned Giving page for more details.

Young women learn best when challenged by an interdisciplinary and experiential curriculum. That's why, at this affordable boarding school for girls in Virginia, you'll find girls flying drones across campus, developing apps in Schoolhouse, writing poetry on the banks of Goose Creek, and utilizing our current construction projects to learn about engineering. The Foxcroft Circle, previously the Annual Fund, makes these experiences possible.
Embracing Miss Charlotte's motto: "Keep up with the times," the Campus Master Plan for Foxcroft addresses present and future needs with understanding, appreciation, and commitment to the character of the campus: rural, open, solid, and unpretentious.
Gifts to Foxcroft’s endowment are an important part of the School’s financial foundation. Each endowment gift is invested and the earnings are used to support all aspects of the School, including programs, faculty, and students.
Planned gifts take various forms and provide for the future needs of the School. Forever Foxcroft was established in 1999 by the Board of Trustees to recognize individuals who have included Foxcroft in their estate plans.
Thanks to you, the Great Women of Foxcroft, we met the 1914 Challenge with 109 donors giving in honor of our Founding Day, and the “Winning Fund” was our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Fund, which supports programming and educational opportunities for our students and community — unlocking a total of $3,828 in challenge dollars! In addition, the trivia winners from our kick-off event chose to designate their $500 to Buildings & Grounds which they felt would help alleviate some of the costs incurred through COVID-19 mitigation measures this year.
We want to thank all who participated in Foxcroft’s Celebration Days! Many of you shared stories, gave gifts, and interacted with us on social media. Because of you, we successfully came together as a community in an incredible show of support for our School!
Over the last few weeks, we have celebrated how strong, creative, and resilient the members of our Foxcroft Community are. Our virtual Community Quilt shares the stories of our Celebration Days and offers the opportunity, if you are able, to make a gift to the School.
In late October, students were elated to hear that the new turf fields were open for play, knowing full well what the project means to Foxcroft Athletics and its participants. It brings the fields up to regulation size for field hockey, lacrosse, and soccer; eliminates the slope of the fields; and addresses the poor condition of the playing surfaces. It provides an all-weather option for softball and adds a practice track that makes a spring track program possible. Plus, the facility now includes new scoreboards, stadium seating, handicap access, and conduit for future lighting.
Foxcroft School is excited to announce that it has been honored as a 2018 Gold Circle of Excellence Award recipient by The Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), a global membership association of educational institutions.
