The Schoolhouse Fund is our biggest fundraiser of the school year, and a cornerstone of philanthropy at Hollywood Schoolhouse.
Our goals with the Schoolhouse Fund are two-fold. First, we attempt to raise a set dollar amount determined by the Board each year based on our operating budget. Second, we strive for 100% participation from our families, faculty, staff, and Board. Participation in the Schoolhouse Fund demonstrates confidence in our program and commitment to our community.
We ask for contributions shortly after the school year begins. Gifts can be made immediately or families can elect to make a pledge to be fulfilled by the end of the school year.
Our hope is that you will make Hollywood Schoolhouse your primary philanthropic priority. We ask that you contribute at a level that is personally meaningful and that makes sense for your family, keeping in mind the number of children you have at the Schoolhouse.
Each year, the Parent Association takes on two major fundraisers alongside their community-building endeavors in order to raise money for Tuition Assistance at the Schoolhouse. We ask each family to find a way to participate in these fundraisers, which are also a wonderful way to get to know new families and celebrate the Schoolhouse community.
The Fall fundraiser is a large offering of individual events which simultaneously build community across students and families of all grade levels. Host families cover the costs of the event and 100% admission proceeds go to Tuition Assistance at the Schoolhouse. Families can get involved by hosting or attending events throughout the school year.
The Spring fundraiser is our annual Gala which includes silent and live auctions, dinner, dancing, drinks, and more. A beloved Schoolhouse tradition, this event offers numerous ways for families to help raise funds. From donating auction items to buying tickets to the event and shopping at the auction, we hope that all families find a way to be involved in this event.
Capital and special campaigns help Hollywood Schoolhouse think big and accomplish new goals not funded in our annual operating budget. We will provide more information about these initiatives as they arise, but if you are interested in learning more about where we are going as a community, give us a call and we are happy to share.
