Your Gift Will Help a Child Find His or Her Voice.
With your support, the Atlanta Speech School will continue to unlock the doors to language, literacy and everything the world has to offer. We will ensure that each child can find their voice and decide their own future as we leverage our impact to make a difference for all children throughout Georgia and beyond.
A world filled with language is a world filled with opportunity.
Keeping the Promise
We are in the final days of the Keeping the Promise campaign for endowment and capital improvements. To date, we are just over 90%of our ambitious $30 million goal. Funds raised through the campaign support the construction of the new staff parking lot, expanded playing fiends and playgrounds, technology upgrades, professional development and endowment for our need-based financial aid program. Help us achieve our goal today!
The Annual Fund is our yearly fundraising campaign to support the daily operations of the School, including our need-based financial aid program, teacher salaries and benefits, program costs and school-wide operational expenses. Every dollar makes a difference, and participation increases our ability to fund raise successfully in the community at large through local and national foundations.
