The Husky Fund
What is The Husky Fund?
Each school year, our families, faculty and staff, and Trustees are expected to contribute to The Husky Fund to the best of their ability. Gifts to The Husky Fund are applied across the schools’ operating budget to fully fund the highest priority needs on campus and support the people and programs that strengthens all aspects of our schools. Every dollar donated means that our students have increased opportunities in a vibrant visual and performing arts program, an encouraging and competitive athletics program, ongoing curricular enhancements, and exhilarating outdoor education experiences. Our schools have a robust financial assistance budget, allowing us to achieve our mission to be a diverse and inclusive community, further enriching the academic and social experience for all students.
Why is 100% participation so important?
Striving for and reaching 100% participation demonstrates that our community is strong, united and deserving of support. In addition to asking our community to support our great work, we seek outside resources as well, including support from foundations, corporations and community friends. These potential funders often want to see strong support from within our school community before they partner with us. Our faculty and staff give 100% each year and that sends a powerful message to all.
How can we give to The Husky Fund?
Since we are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, gifts to our schools are tax deductible. We accept donations of cash, check, credit card, and stock. We also encourage our community to take advantage of employer matching gift programs and receive gift recognition at an increased level. Please click on the “Ways to Give” tab at the top left of this page for more details.
Does it matter when we make our donation?
Yes, a gift made early in the school year enables us to plan for our ongoing budget and make the best use of our community’s support. Our fiscal year is July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020, and gifts can be made within those dates to be counted for the 2019-20 school year. Because all Husky Fund gifts are spent in the year they are donated, The Husky Fund effort is renewed each school year. And because our schools depend on The Husky Fund to support our core programs, our Board of Trustees has identified The Husky Fund as our top philanthropic priority. While there are many opportunities to support RHP & Ren throughout the year, we ask our community to make The Husky Fund one of their first gifts each year.
ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE
