Annual Fund

Each year, the trustees, parents, grandparents, friends, alumni, vendors, members of High Point Friends Meeting and the faculty & staff of High Point Friends School are asked to make a contribution to the school’s Annual Fund.  Your participation in the HPFS Annual Fund helps to ensure that our school’s financial objectives are met.  By your support, you are also leading by example and showing the children and the entire HPFS family the importance you place on the quality of our students’ education.

What is the Annual Fund?

The Annual Fund, which is the Trustees’ primary fund-raising vehicle for HPFS, generates a critical component of the School’s operating budget.  By maximizing our financial resources, HPFS is better able to attract and retain highly experienced and qualified faculty with more competitive salaries, upgrade technology & instructional materials, help underwrite collateral educational opportunities and enhance the overall learning experience for our students.  Tuition alone does not cover the cost of an HPFS education. Yet we endeavor keep our school’s tuition competitive.  Thus, every student in the school is supported by the Annual Fund.

What role do I play in fund-raising?

The various communities listed above have customarily supported their students’ schools with financial giving. This philanthropic tradition has a long history among independent schools in the United States.  Your contribution aids in keeping our tuition rates as competitive as possible while fostering academic excellence, spiritual values and social responsibility.  We hope you will see the benefit in joining with other HPFS communities to support the 2012-2013 Annual Fund.

Again, are planning a “premium package” for new givers and those who increase their giving by 10% or more over last year’s gift.   Included will be prominent placement of the “110% Club” honorees’ names in the school entryway and on our web site. (See bottom of this page for current honorees).

Thank you for your thoughtful consideration.

Important note:  Percentage of participation, particularly by parents, is an important indicator used by philanthropic organizations and certification groups in judging the vitality of the school.

So even a small gift has a significant impact.

There are different levels of giving:

Philosopher ($5,000 +)
Scholar ($2,500 ~ 4,999)
Enlightener ($1,200 ~ 2,499)
Professor ($600 ~ 1,199)
Mentor ($300 ~ 599)
Instructor ($100 ~ 299)
Tutor (up to $99)
