Rawson Saunders Fund


The Rawson Saunders Fund (formerly the Annual Fund) is a critical request we make of our families throughout the school year, with a special request in the fall. The Rawson Saunders Fund provides ongoing support to the operating budget, allowing us to enhance technology in the classrooms, maintain a secure campus, offer competitive faculty salaries, and provide for extensive continuing education. These vital funds help provide an ideal atmosphere for students to thrive and reach their highest potential.

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.
