The Annual Fund

...helps our teachers go above and beyond to inspire students to reach their potential.

Please note that the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act has introduced new opportunities for charitable contributions to nonprofit institutions. For individuals who itemize, the CARES Act allows deductions for cash or stock donations of up to 100% of your 2020 adjusted gross income. For those who take the standard deduction, the bill allows for as much as $300 in annual charitable contributions (cash or stock) to be directly subtracted from your gross income.

2020–2021 Goal: 100% Participation
Parent Participation 66%
Board Participation 100%
Faculty/Staff Participation 99%
Total Raised $929,605

As of June 11, 2021
