Just 1 Month to make a difference by your participation in Synergy!

Bobby Welch, Vice Chair of the Board, explains the role of an Annual Fund in the life of all schools. See Bobby’s full profile.

Parents, we have heard you and are making changes! Based on your feedback, the 2018 Synergy Annual Fund, the first giving priority at The Habersham School, will be short, simple, and personal. In addition to 100% board participation and high faculty and staff participation, we have celebrated increasing levels of parent participation each consecutive year –  the number one indicator that foundations will look at when deciding whether to partner with us. Thank you in advance for your faithful and generous support!

Why now?

We typically schedule the Synergy Annual Fund for the end of each school year. With the move to a month-long blitz, we have opted to move this to the end of the calendar year to further allow our generous supporters to take advantage of end of the year giving. Have questions about how your support of the 2017 Synergy Annual Fund affects your support of the 2018 blitz? Contact our Advancement Office at advancement@thehabershamschool.org.

Why should I support the Synergy Annual Fund?

Each year, this campaign plays a critical role in supporting the annual operating budget and therefore minimizing significant tuition increases. Instead of charging the “real cost” of tuition, the Habersham board decides to mitigate these costs through fundraising efforts that allow those who give to receive a tax benefit.

What do Synergy Annual Fund contributions support?

In addition to mitigating significant tuition increases, as a critical part of the operating budget, contributions raised through the Synergy Annual Fund impact every student and area in the life of the school including but not limited to: academics, athletics, arts, classroom instructional materials, various student programs, technology improvements and equipment, faculty salaries and professional development, facilities maintenance.

What's the goal?

In the 2017-18 school year, we raised $187,109 through the Synergy Annual Fund with roughly 60% parent participation. This year, we are seeking to raise $200,000 ($50,000 raised by parents during the blitz), with 80% parent participation.
