Gather & Grow Fund


Responding to Uncertainty: Please help us meet a greater need

Thanks in part to your generosity, we are able to support members of our school family throughout the course of each year in a variety of ways. We assist students who need help with fees and subscriptions, we provide need-based scholarships for after school care, we close financial gaps for trips and activities. This practice is woven into our school culture. We teach our students to be global citizens, and as such we are all experiencing the impact of this global pandemic together. Now more than ever we will need to be a reliable source of support for families as incomes become less secure and the local economy is disrupted.

As we push through this uncertainty, we’re asking that you help us continue to do what we’ve always done in an even bigger way. We are working to keep our kitchen open as a regular source of nutritious food, we have stretched our supply of laptops and electronic devices to ensure that every family can stay connected to our remote platform, and we are establishing ways to stay in contact with students that we support through all types of crises.

If you have never donated to our Gather & Grow Fund, please consider doing so for the first time at any level. If you have been a regular contributor but have not so far this year, please take this opportunity to rejoin our donor community. If you have already given this year – thank you. If you’re able to dig deeper and contribute more, now is definitely the time. 

Donations will be tax-deductible as allowed by law.

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. The 2019-2020 Gather and Grow Fund has a goal of $150,000 in unrestricted gifts and 100% participation.

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!
