Key Annual Fund

PledgeDropOffDay-300x188Annual Giving is the single most important source
of non-tuition income for The Cottage School.
It is a responsibility all members of TCS community share.

The goal of the Key Annual Fund is to build a solid annual giving program that will eventually provide a critical 10 percent of the School’s operating budget, enabling TCS to enhance its programs and keep tuition increases minimal. Unrestricted gifts to the Key Annual Fund directly and immediately benefit each student and faculty member as well as every program on campus.

The Key Annual Fund differs from other fundraising efforts because it directly supports The Cottage School’s operating budget.
The Key Annual Fund is the single most critical fundraising program for The Cottage School.
All parents are encouraged to support it first before supporting any other fundraising program.

10 percent can make the difference!

SKU: KEY ANNUAL.

Product Description

In addition to the financial benefits the school receives from a gift to the Key Annual Fund, participation, at any level is the single strongest factor considered by private and corporate foundations in determining whether or not to lend their support to The Cottage School. Many foundations will not consider a request for funding if the organization has not achieved 100 percent participation in their Annual Fund by Board, staff, and key stakeholders (in a school’s case, parents).

Gifts of all sizes really do make a difference because their collective impact is enormous. The Key Annual Fund Drive kicks off in August of every year. Pledges and gifts are solicited from August through May. Pledges must be fulfilled by May 31 to be counted in the total.
