Annual Fund

Inspiring Compassionate Leaders Through Academic Excellence

The Annual Fund is one of the schools most significant sources of support and it is through your generosity that our students continue to benefit from abundant opportunities to learn, grow and shine.

As we continue to fulfill our mission of Inspiring Compassionate Leaders through Academic Excellence, we feel a renewed appreciation for everything that makes The Healdsburg School a vibrant and successful beacon of education. Each year we build upon prior efforts as we continue to nurture our students and enhance our programs. The ongoing commitment of our community is the cornerstone of our school’s vitality.

The Annual Fund Campaign is critical to the health of our school as the money raised flows directly into the operating budget. Virtually all independent schools need to raise revenue though an Annual Fund to cover operating expenses. Supporting the Annual Fund Campaign enables us to enhance and maintain the exceptional educational programs our school strives to achieve.

Participation in our Annual Fund sends a powerful message that you believe in The Healdsburg School—its educational programs, and the teachers and mentors who are integral to it. It is a strong statement that you believe in the value of a Healdsburg School education. We are currently at 92% THS Family participation. Please help us celebrate our 10-year anniversary by reaching 100% participation!

Thank you to our THS Family and Friends who have supported this year’s campaign!
