List of 7 frequently asked questions.

  • What is #MayDayofGiving?

    Leading up to Shady Hill's annual May Day celebration on campus, we are asking the community, near and far, to Unite and Unite in support of our students and faculty with a financial gift to the Shady Hill Fund.
    #MayDayofGiving celebrates our community by seeking participation from all its members: alumni, parents, grandparents, parents of alumni, faculty, and staff. Participation is the key--not the gift size. As our number of gifts rise, several challenge gifts will unlock.
    • The first challenge? Be one of the first 100 gifts needed to unlock a $100,000 gift!
    • To participate in the challenge, make your gift anytime between now and May 13.
    • Be a part of #MayDayofGiving!
  • Who can participate in the #MayDayofGiving challenge?

    Anyone and everyone can participate--Alumni! Parents! Parents of Alumni! Grandparents! Faculty! TTC Alumni! Neighbors! Friends!

    Every gift, of every size, counts toward the challenges. Let’s Unite and Unite to unlock them!
  • Why does my gift on #MayDayofGiving matter?

    Shady Hill values gifts of all sizes. #MayDayofGiving embodies that community value by counting the number of gifts and not their dollar value toward the challenges. Your gift, no matter the size, will help unlock a challenge and have a resounding impact on the School!
  • How do I make my gift?

    Click here on or before May 13 to participate in the challenge. You can also use Venmo @Shady-Hill, or mail in a check.
  • How do I spread the word?

    Your voice on social media will let others know they can make a difference, too. By sharing with your networks, you can help increase our impact! Share our posts or make your own on Facebook or Instagram! Use #MayDayofGiving and #ShadyHillSchool when you tag classmates and friends.
  • What does my gift support?

    Your gift and the challenge grants support Shady Hill students and faculty through the Shady Hill Fund, which makes possible all things Shady Hill: exceptional curriculum, outstanding faculty, socioeconomic diversity, and more.
