The Annual Fund supports our mission of scholarship, diversity, and citizenship, providing competitive salaries, benefits, and professional development for our faculty, innovative curriculum and project-based learning opportunities, student wellness resources, technology, performing and visual arts, athletics, and tuition assistance.

In October, the Head-Royce community comes together to celebrate the daily work
of our students and faculty with a month long fundraising effort for Annual Fund. Givetober is
a joyful time on campus, with fun raffles, friendly competition, and perhaps a visit from Tuffy!
