The Gather and Grow Fund is ANCS’s annual campaign that directly supports the school’s operating budget. The Gather and Grow Fund runs from July 1 to June 30 each year and brings our community together in the spirit of giving.
Even in these challenging times, we remain as committed as ever to creating lifelong learners. Offering virtual and in-person learning during a global pandemic has come with significant challenges and increased expenses. We continue to rely on our district, state, and federal funding partners as well as the generosity of donors like you. Your contributions enable us to respond to the emerging and immediate needs of our school family. The Gather & Grow annual campaign allows us to place two teachers in each classroom, provide a constructivist, inquiry-based learning experience for our students, and provide a true farm-to-table culinary program even as we make additional investments to protect the health of our students and teachers during an ongoing pandemic.
While ANCS receives the majority of its funding from state and local sources, we also depend on donations to our Gather & Grow Fund to continue to provide the unique ANCS experience to our students. The school must raise approximately $400 per student each year to balance our budget. Funds raised have historically been earmarked to keep two teachers in each classroom, maintain a low student-teacher ratio, and support a high-caliber special needs curriculum that reflects the values of ANCS. Donations of any amount are appreciated, whether it is a $5 per month recurring donation, a $400 annual gift, or a leadership level gift of $1,000 or more.
We hope you will consider making a donation to support our efforts. With your help, we can get through these difficult times together, and find our ANCS community stronger on the other side.
Donations will be tax-deductible as allowed by law.
