The Emerald Fund – Growing Together

The Emerald Fund is the most important fundraising priority at Emerald Mountain School. It helps bridge the gap between tuition income and the cost of operating the school. Unrestricted giving to the Emerald Fund supports the many people and programs that make an EMS education extraordinary.

We invite you to join the EMS faculty and parent body that have reached 100% participation for the 2020-21 Academic year.

By making a gift to the Emerald Fund you help to support faculty salaries, professional growth opportunities, technology upgrades, classroom materials, and curriculum enhancements. Your financial support is critical to enacting the mission of the school and every gift, no matter the size, makes a significant difference. Thank you for investing in the lives of EMS students.
