Nearly every independent school in the nation relies on annual giving to support its operating budget and bridge the fiscal realities that lie between tuition income and the actual cost of educating students. At Frederica Academy, tuition covers approximately 80% of the expenses of operating our school. The Annual Fund is the critical source of revenue for covering this 20% gap. As an independent school, Frederica Academy does not receive government tax funds. Rather, Frederica relies on tuition and carefully-crafted donor programs to offset operating expenses. Meeting the $350,000 Annual Fund goal ensures a balanced budget at the end of the year; exceeding the goal creates opportunities for new investments in technology, teacher professional development, and other classroom enhancements.
The Frederica Academy Annual Fund helps make tuition more affordable for more families while offering parents a tax-deductible benefit for at least part of their investment in their child’s education. Through gifts large and small, the Annual Fund supports our devoted faculty, our premier college counseling program, our athletics offerings, our arts opportunities and so many other positive differentiators that make Frederica Academy so much a part of the lives of our students, their parents, and our community.
Broad support for the Annual Fund from parents, grandparents, board members, alumni, alumni parents, and other friends of the school demonstrates enthusiasm for the direction of Frederica Academy and encourages other donors as well as foundations to offer support.
