About the Annual Fund
The Annual Fund is the School's yearly campaign to raise funds in support of the daily operating budget. All independent schools are faced with this same need - to make up the difference between costs and tuition. Contributions help to close this gap that exists between tuition and the actual cost of a Horace Mann education. The Annual Fund touches all aspects of the School as it represents approximately 8% of the overall operating budget.
Annual Fund contributions make a tremendous and immediate impact on all educational programs, and enable the school to respond to urgent and ongoing operational priorities including:
- enhancing the breadth and depth of the academic and co-curricular programming that have always been hallmarks of a Horace Mann School education
- attracting and retaining the most talented faculty and staff
- providing financial aid for a socioeconomically diverse community of students
- maintaining our four beautiful campuses
Through the Annual Fund, programs are strengthened and faculty and staff are provided with the tools necessary for students to learn at the highest level both inside and outside of the classrooms. Financial aid is enhanced and more solidly embedded as a core strategic element of our commitment to academic excellence, opportunity creation and leadership development.
It is our hope and expectation that all members of our community will share this responsibility and choose to support Horace Mann School at whatever level they are comfortable.
