giving Programs

Throughout the year, the Hewitt community focuses intently on the Annual Fund which supplies current-year support for Hewitt's highest needs. We also come together around special programming and additional opportunities to show support for our school.


The Hewitt School Benefit is the school's largest fundraising and community-building event of the year, netting more than $325,000 annually. In 2019, proceeds from the Benefit enhanced our visiting scholars program, which brings nationally recognized experts to Hewitt to work closely with our community to ensure that our girls thrive in an environment designed for what they need. Members of the Hewitt community are asked to participate in some way: underwriting the event, sponsoring faculty tickets, volunteering their time and talent, donating auction items, and of course by attending and having a good time!

For more information about this event, including underwriting and auction item donations, please contact Kelsey Rodriguez.

Please note that for each of these programs, we are not able to distinguish whose purchases were responsible for the funds that come to Hewitt. We so appreciate this extra support for the school, but will not be able to attribute any of these funds to individual donors.

Giving Tuesday (December 3)

Hewitt celebrates the national philanthropic program called Giving Tuesday. On this, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, gifts to the Annual Fund take on additional meaning as they both support Hewitt programs and also signify our community's spirit of thanks and generosity during the holiday season.

Hewitt Day (April 23)

Nearly a century after our school’s founding, Caroline Hewitt’s philosophy remains at the core of a Hewitt education. Through mindful teaching and learning, our passionate faculty inspire Hewitt students to take ownership of their learning and develop projects that are personally meaningful to them.

On Hewitt Day, we come together as a community to celebrate the role of The Hewitt School in our lives and honor the life and legacy of Caroline Hewitt's commitment to empowering students to discover their individual sense of purpose in the world.
