Even as a pandemic has forced us to take a new approach to teaching, we remain as committed as ever to creating lifelong learners.

Responding to Uncertainty: Please Help Us Meet a Greater Need


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. 

An October 2020 survey revealed 90% of our parents felt they had access to all the necessary technology and connectivity needed for virtual learning, 80% said academic quality is at the highest levels a virtual environment can allow, and 85% said they approved of how we as a school have responded to the COVID-19 threat. Parents’ approval rates are high thanks in large part to your generosity.

Your financial support enabled us to go out and secure the additional laptops, Wi-Fi hotspots and learning materials that are powering virtual learning. We have been able to support our teachers with additional professional development, and we are equipping our classrooms with new safety equipment to prepare for a safe and healthy return to in-person education.

We could not have gotten this far without you, and we continue to need your help. Please consider making a donation – of any size – to our Gather & Grow Annual Fund.

Why should I give?

In addition to funding from state and local sources, the school depends on gifts from donors like you to continue to provide the unique ANCS experience to our students.

Gifts to the annual campaign are key in that they directly support the school’s operating budget and help cover crucial expenses such as faculty/staff salaries and benefits, building and grounds maintenance, and programming and curriculum needs.

Annual campaign gifts also support new initiatives such as the reduction of class sizes, faculty and staff professional development, implementation of the IB program at the Middle Campus, enhancing our Farm-to-School nutrition program, and related arts and athletics programming.

How much should I give?

Approximately $400 per child (a little over a dollar a day) is needed to retain our programs, but every gift, regardless of size, matters and is greatly appreciated. We encourage you to give as generously as you can to support our unique mission. Our goal is 100% participation from our community.

Please give an amount that is rewarding and meaningful to you. Together we can ensure that our students continue to ‘gather and grow’. Thank you for your support of ANCS!

Matching Gifts

Many companies offer programs that match charitable donations made by their employees, directors, employees’ spouses, or retirees. Such programs typically match all or a percentage of the donation, making the employer a partner in the donor’s personal philanthropy.

To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, use the Matching Gift Search database.

Thank you for your support of ANCS! Your annual gift, no matter the size, makes a difference in the lives of our students.
