Why is the Annual Fund so important?
Your donation to the Annual Fund is the most important gift you can make to Windsor Academy. Essential to the school’s operating budget, the Annual Fund makes up the difference between tuition and the actual day-to-day cost of running the school and educating our students. The Annual Fund helps in providing more classroom resources, campus renovations and updates, additions to our athletic facility, gifts for the Tuition Assistance Program, and professional development opportunities. Tuition only covers about 80% of the cost of running the school. A strong Annual fund lessens the need for tuition increases. Your donation to the Annual Fund is tax deductible. Please consult your tax advisor for rules governing your tax situation.
Unlike endowment or capital campaigns, money donated to the Annual Fund is used in the fiscal year it was received in.
- Our fiscal year runs July 1st to June 30th
- Our Annual Fund makes a fresh start each year with new goals
- Our goal for 2014-2015 is $100,000 consisting of 100% parent participation and 100% faculty/staff participation.
Who gives to the Annual Fund?
Windsor Academy receives Annual Fund support from all members of the Windsor Knights community including parents, alumni, grandparents, parents of alumni, faculty and staff, board members, friends of the school and corporations.
Every gift moves us closer to our obtainable goal. Pledges must be honored in full by the end of our fiscal year June 30th. Please use our online giving form through PayPal to make your donation or pledge by using your credit card. You can make your gift by cash/check. Please make checks payable to: Windsor Academy. Send to the Attn: Director of Development Lisa Marshall firstname.lastname@example.org.
While it is possible to restrict your gift for a specific purpose, we encourage unrestricted giving so the school has the flexibility to use the funds in areas that will make the greatest impact for the school and students.
