WHAT IS THE BLAIR FUND?

The Blair Fund is one of the School's most important fundraising initiatives. Providing day-to-day support for many aspects of Blair including: academics; athletics; arts; campus life; Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB); and scholarships, the Blair Fund strengthens and ensures a robust Blair experience for today's students and faculty. Did you know that tuition does not cover the full cost to educate our students? When considering all that contributes to a Blair education, the yearly cost exceeds tuition by nearly $15,000 per student. To continue the tradition of academic and extracurricular excellence, the School relies upon consistent financial support. Any gift, no matter the size, enhances the Blair community.
