Annual Fund

Every Gift Matters

The Annual Fund Campaign 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 Campaign 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. 

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.
