Annual Fund

 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.

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. Our 2016/17 campaign reached 99% THS Family participation, a new record for our school. Thank you THS Families for your amazing support! What a fantastic way to celebrate our 10 year anniversary!

If you have any questions about the specific benefits of the Annual Fund, please feel free to contact Sarah Law our Director of Community Engagement.

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