Why We Need Your Support

Neighborhood House — like all public schools — is funded in large part by per pupil tuition reimbursements received from the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE). Each school year, however, a funding gap exists. There is a $1,400 per scholar gap between the funding received from the State, and the true cost of a Neighborhood House education. We rely on the generosity of the philanthopric community to bridge this gap each school year. We thank you for your continued support!
