Question Mark

What is the Annual Fund?

Like many non-profit, independent schools, Sand Hill School tuition does not fully cover operational costs. Our Annual Fund is critical to keeping our tuition increases to a minimum and allowing our community to invest in our school with tax-deductible contributions. Our Annual Fund is made up of dollars raised from our annual school event plus individual donations and matching corporate gifts. Every student benefits from the Annual Fund on a daily basis. Sand Hill School Annual Fund dollars directly support children and learning.


When you contribute to the
Annual Fund, you support
kids and teachers:

  • Personalized curriculum for language-based learning differences
  • Technology tools for every student
  • Targeted instruction for each student
  • New Social Emotional Learning curriculum for middle school
  • Continued Executive Functioning instruction
  • Needed science lab equipment
  • Visual and performing arts programs
  • Holiday Extravaganza and Spring Musical
  • Individual instructional coaching for every teacher
  • Low student/teacher ratios
  • Reading instruction certification for more teachers
  • Integrated clinicians and specialists

Wrapped Gift

Every gift counts.

Every gift, large and small, makes a difference. Every gift is appreciated. Each year, we strive for 100% family participation. Philanthropic organizations provide crucial funding to our school and this keeps our tuition from increasing. Percentage of participation is a key statistic requested by these organizations. Help us reach our critical 100% participation.

Matching Gifts—Double your impact!

Many companies will match their employee’s gifts to charitable organizations which can double their value. Check with your employer to see if this option is available to you.
