2018-19 Annual fund goal $700,000
And more importantly, 100% participation from our Speech School family: parents, staff, Board and community friends
The Annual Fund is our yearly fundraising campaign. It is the FIRST and MOST IMPORTANT GIFT someone can make to the Speech School each year.
Why is participation so important?
We received over $6.5 million in contributions last year from local and national foundations that require us to report our parent, staff and board support. The higher our percentages, the better our chances of receiving funding from the foundation community.
What is it used for?
The Annual Fund supports our need-based financial aid program, helping to maintain our legacy of never turning away a child in need of our specialized services due to financial circumstances.
It is the foundation of the School's operating budget - your dollars go to work this year for every child. Annual Fund dollars pay for salaries and benefits, program costs and school-wide operational expenses.
