Your support makes a profound difference in the lives of Rawson Saunders students. Our fundraising philosophy is based on respect for our families, transparency, and a very sincere need. We have structured our fundraising strategy based on these principles while ensuring that we request funding necessary to provide resources faculty require and provide new opportunities for growth and learning for our students.

Rawson Saunders Fund


The Rawson Saunders Fund is our annual, year-long fundraising campaign—with a special request in the fall—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 84% 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. Learn more about the Rawson Saunders Fund.
