Does the Annual Fund help with COVID-19 relief?

Yes! Every gift made April through June will be used for COVID-19 response and relief, supporting employees and families in need. Now more than ever, your gift to the annual fund will enable Head-Royce to respond to pressing needs such as financial hardship and requests for supplementary financial aid resulting from the Coronavirus pandemic.

Why support the Annual Fund?

Head-Royce relies on more than just tuition to fulfill our mission of scholarship, diversity, and citizenship. Annual Fund donations provide approximately 5% of the school's operating budget and philanthropic support from our community is essential to maintaining our standard of excellence and one of the most important ways to make a difference at Head-Royce.

The Annual Fund provides flexible, unrestricted dollars that enable Head-Royce to provide our students with an exemplary educational experience. Trustees, parents, grandparents, alumni, parents of alumni and friends make gifts to the Annual Fund every year to benefit our students and faculty. Parents are invited and encouraged to participate during a 100 Day Challenge in the Fall by making a gift or pledge by December 31.

Your Impact

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 financial aid. But don't take our word for it - watch the video below to see how the Annual Fund makes a difference.
