This will help ensure our ability to promptly identify and acknowledge your gift when it is received.
We also accept gifts of mutual funds, but please contact Rod Brandon prior to initiating the transfer to ensure the shares are transferred successfully.
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.

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.
The Tuesday following Thanksgiving has become a worldwide celebration of generosity and the momentum behind giving back.

This vital fund supports 7% of our annual operating costs and every aspect of the School from textbooks to lightbulbs. Your gift impacts every student every day.
Did you know that the third week of October has been designated as National Estate Planning Awareness Week? Established in 2008 by House Resolution 1499, National Estate Planning Awareness Week was created for the purpose of educating everyone about the importance and benefits of estate planning.
This holiday season, we want to thank you for all that you do to impact the daily lives of each and every Foxcroft student. Because of you, our School continues to unlock our students’ potential and expand their opportunities for the future!
If you would like to make a year-end, tax-deductible gift to Foxcroft, we will be available to assist you through December 31.
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.
