Giving FAQs

1. I already pay tuition. Why are you asking for more money?

Our goal is to keep tuition at a rate where we can attract a diverse student body from a wide range of income levels. Our alone does not cover the cost of operating the school. Starting this year we ask those families who have the ability to contribute more for their children’s education to do so through our Voluntary Equitable Tuition program (VET).

2. What if I don’t like asking for money?

We have two goals for the Annual Campaign: first, to raise $50,000 to meet the year’s financial obligations and strengthen our programs and, second, to have every family and employee contribute. When we reach outside the community to ask for grants and loans, one of the first questions we are asked is, “How strongly does your community support the school?” There are many ways to give but the clearest way to measure this support is through financial contribution. We don’t necessarily like pressuring parents or spending evenings at fundraising meetings and phone-a-thons but we do it because we love our school.

3. Can I pay online or with a credit card? Can I pay over time? Can I donate stock? Can my employer match my gift?

Yes! For details, please see HERE.

5. I volunteer, do I still have to give to the Annual Campaign?

Yes! While volunteering is the backbone of every community, the financial need still exists. Volunteers of limited financial means are encouraged to shift some of their volunteer hours to fundraising through their networks and by using the Peer-to-Peer tools. See those options HERE.
