Why Is the Annual Fund Important for Private Schools?, Ewa, Hawaii

Tuition dollars never fully cover the costs of educational opportunities, such as the advanced classes, field trips, art studios, and extracurricular activities available at top private schools including ISLAND PACIFIC ACADEMY. To help fill the gap, they rely on students’ families, alumni, and members of the community to make donations to the annual fund.

Why Is the Annual Fund Important for Private Schools?

private schoolRunning a private school requires significant resources. Tuition income normally covers about 85% of the cost of offering a challenging, well-rounded education. The annual fund covers the difference between a school’s tuition fees and the cost of the educational facilities. It’s one of the most important resources a private school has to fund the experiences that enrich students’ lives. 

When you contribute to a school’s annual fund, you’re giving students the gift of personal growth and academic success. These dollars help pay for the activities and facilities that deepen students’ learning experience, such as field trips to museums, advanced technology labs, and science equipment. The annual fund also gives students the opportunity to explore their creative interests in art, music, and theater. Private schools augment their athletics, teacher training, and health and safety supplies with money from the annual fund.
