Annual Fund

Every Gift Matters

The Annual Fund raises over $350,000 annually to support innovation, creativity, and diversity in classrooms across all three of our campuses, including student-centered learning initiatives, need-based tuition assistance, and faculty professional development. Families, friends, businesses and foundations are invited to support the people, places, promise, and purpose of Headwaters School through donations and event participation. 

The Annual Fund begins in September and runs through June. Tax-deductible contributions can be madein support of key areas of the school’s operating budget, helping to cover the gap between tuition revenue and budgeted expenses. 

This year, in the wake of a global pandemic, Headwaters School has introduced the COVID Relief Fund. Your tax deductible donation to Headwaters’ COVID Relief Fund can help a Headwaters family experiencing hardship due to the pandemic stay afloat during this challenging time. Headwaters is expanding financial aid for both the rest of this school year and next school year, and your gift helps make that possible. 
Gifts to the COVID Relief Fund also help us to maintain our business operations during this stressful time. Headwaters is committed to keeping our guides employed for as long as possible, and your generosity helps Headwaters School rise to meet this new norm in education

Recognizing the wide range of circumstances in our school community, we encourage everyone to be as generous as they can be and find ways to contribute that are meaningful to them.Your participation is meaningful and every gift makes a real and immediate impact.
