The possibilities are endless when you expect the best of a girl and provide the resources for her to be just that!
Hewitt Strategic Plan 2012
The Annual Fund is supported by contributions from all Hewitt families – as well as faculty, staff, trustees, alumnae, parents of alumnae, grandparents, and friends. Contributions provide students with the resources to acquire knowledge, discover meaning, make connections, and hone strategic skills. Last year, $1,400,000 was raised and 93% of families participated.
Tuition alone does not cover the cost of educating each child and the Annual Fund bridges that gap of approximately $5,000. Specifically the Annual Fund supports:
- Academic Departments and Curriculum
- Creative Arts
- Professional Development
- Tuition Assistance
Giving comprises more than 8% of our operating budget and remains our largest source of non-tuition revenue. Each gift to the Annual Fund is important and a contribution of any amount is an expression of support for the ongoing work at Hewitt.
This year our Annual Fund goals are:
- Raise $1,300,000 for the Annual Fund
- Reach 100% parent participation
- Renew 100% faculty and staff participation
To meet our Annual Fund goal we ask that everyone in the Hewitt community give to the best of their ability and to make Hewitt their philanthropic priority. Strong participation sends an important message of commitment and signals to potential corporate and foundation donors that the Hewitt community is a worthwhile cause.
