Your Child’s Continuing Journey

The 2022/2023 Annual Fund Campaign

Unlike many independent schools that add 8% to tuition to cover depreciation and maintenance, Sunny Hollow relies on support through Annual Fund donations to keep tuition accessible.  Our first Goal of $70,000.00 will cover the gap between tuition and operating expenses.

Guides Have Spoken and Been Heard!

Once we reach $70,000.00, the second Goal is to raise an additional $31,000.00 to support Guide requests for their students. 

Deepening Connections to Nature and the Joys and Benefits of Physical Activity

Last year’s campaign raised a total of $132,855.00, with gifts ranging from $1 to $20,000 and above. 

Please understand: What is MOST IMPORTANT is not the size of your gift but your participation in supporting Sunny Hollow! Making a meaningful contribution to the Annual Fund is a choice to give at your highest comfort level, which can range from $1 to $25,000 and beyond!  (Gift amounts are never shared and all gifts are equally valued and deeply appreciated.)
