Nurture & Sustain

Help Nurture & Sustain Headwaters

Families, friends, businesses and foundations are invited to Nurture & Sustain the people, places, promise, and purpose of Headwaters School through donations and event participation. The Nurture & Sustain Fund includes the school’s Annual Fund and a series of spring events.

Nurture & Sustain begins in September and runs through June. Nurture & Sustain will raise $400,000 in support of the school’s operating budget, helping to bridge the gap between tuition revenue and budgeted expenses.

Your support NURTURES priorities across our campusesN through need-based financial aid and faculty tuition discounts, professional development for our educators, and new programs and positions to bolster students’ educational experience.

Donations SUSTAIN key elements of our great school including our facilities, van, and bus improvements and maintenance, faculty compensation and benefits, and reasonable tuition rates for all.

Contributions are critical to covering this gap in the school’s budget. In order to meet our $400,000 annual fundraising goal each family would need to give $725 per student. 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.
