The Annual Campaign is a tradition that exemplifies a Culture of Giving at Foothills School. Held every fall, the Annual Campaign is the cornerstone of our annual fundraising efforts. While tuition covers significant costs, it does not cover the total cost of educating each student. Funds from the Annual Campaign directly support our operating budget and help bridge the gap between tuition and the actual cost of operating the school. As a non-profit, independent school, Foothills receives no financial support from the local tax base, or state or national government. While tuition covers significant costs, it does not cover the total cost of educating each student.
Every year you participate in the Annual Campaign, you are showing your support for our students, for our faculty, and for Foothills' mission. Our goal each year is to strive for 100% participation from our community of parents, board members, faculty, and staff members. Foundation leaders and other potential donors view participation as one indicator of satisfaction in our school. As Foothills appeals for outside funding from grants, our participation rate can give can show that Foothills is committed to our mission and give the push needed to be awarded gifts in the future. Every gift made to the Annual Fund, no matter the size, makes a difference for our school.
