The Board of Trustees sets tuition at a competitive rate for our market, and then School relies on community philanthropy to help us meet our goals and build program. The size of these gifts may vary, but all gifts are important. The Fund for HCA supports our mission of to be a faith driven, learning community committed to discovery, innovation, collaboration and excellence. The Fund helps us:
•Build academic programs
•Attract and retain the best faculty and administration
•Maintain a competitive athletic program
•Grow the arts and co-curricular offerings
•Protect our facilities through regular, scheduled maintenance
•Ensure we can “get the word out” about how special HCA is
We are grateful to all of those who have donated in the past and ask for your continued support. The Fund touches every student and helps enhance their educational experience whether it's in the classroom, on the field, on a field trip, in the community, or even in the dining hall. We hope to raise unrestricted dollars to support items in our operating budget which tuition income does not completely cover. Tuition would have to be raised significantly if it was the only source of revenue for HCA.
We asks all of the members of our HCA family (Board, parents, employees, alums, grandparents, alum parents) to contribute and gifts of any size are greatly appreciated. We ask that each family supports the school through the Fund for HCA at a level that is appropriate to their own family's budget and one that expresses pride in being a part of the HCA community. We strive for a high participation rate which is vital as it makes a strong statement about our commitment to Harrells, especially when applying for outside grants. Philanthropy is crucial to the ongoing academic success and financial security of the school.
As opposed to tuition, contributions to the Fund for HCA are tax-deductible.
Thank you for all that you do for Harrells!
