Climbing Higher Annual Campaign
The Climbing Higher Annual Campaign for Foothills School is an essential part of the school's fundraising efforts each year. Held each spring, the Annual Campaign seeks to raise money from current parents, faculty and staff, and friends of the school to support our annual operating budget. 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. Money raised through the Annual Campaign helps bridge the gap between tuition and the actual cost of operating the school.
Our goal each year is to have 100% participation from our parent, board and faculty and staff members. We ask that members of our community give what they are financially able. High levels of participation, at any amount, indicate to corporations, foundations, and others to whom we appeal for support that our community is committed to our mission to be a vibrant learning community where students develop personal, academic and social responsibility - leading to a lifetime of discovery.
In 2011, Foothills students joined the Climbing Higher Annual Campaign with the first ever Kids Climb for Foothills - The Ascent to Table Rock. Students gathered pledges from the community to sponsor their hike up the Boise landmark. Since its inception in 2011, Foothills students have raised more than $15,000 for the Climbing Higher campaign.
