Our approach to philanthropy aligns with our approach to education. It is rooted in the belief that we as individuals are creative, resourceful, and compassionate beings and that together we form a community that is dynamic, abundant, vibrant, and capable of tremendous things. Our Community Fund was established in 2019 to focus on co-creating a culture of impact. The Community Fund collects all monies raised through our fundraising program, which is approximately $40,000 annually.
The intention behind the Community Fund is to cultivate a deeply-felt belief in our ability to fund whatever we need in order to provide our students with the best possible educational experience. In creating the Community Fund as a central repository, we wanted to equally relieve the burden on individual classes to fundraise for class-specific activities and develop shared goals with whole-school benefits. While we work to build awareness about our philanthropy plan and fundraising program, we are thrilled to receive near-daily reminders that teachers, students, and parents hold the economic well-being of the school in their consciousness and are active participants in volunteerism and fundraising.
