Rawson Saunders Fund

The Rawson Saunders Fund is our annual fundraising campaign that provides unrestricted, immediate-use dollars in support of the school’s individualized curriculum, our phenomenal teachers, specific program innovations, engaging extracurricular opportunities, tuition assistance, and campus enhancements. As tuition provides only 88% of the schools operating funds, gifts to the Rawson Saunders Fund provide a crucial source of revenue for the school. The Rawson Saunders Fund is a meaningful way for donors to provide vital support for continuous school improvements that support our mission to develop the full potential of dyslexic students through an extraordinary education experience. 

Your gift has a direct and tangible impact on students and faculty. We hope you will join this community-wide effort as we continue this great tradition of philanthropy, community, and a shared vision.
