Annual Fund

As an independent school, Beacon Academy relies on the philanthropic support of our complete community. Tuition alone does not cover the full cost of each child’s education, and we look to our families and friends, our faculty and staff, our grandparents, and our local neighbors to help with budget relief through donations to the Annual Fund. These tax-deductible gifts ensure that we can retain the best faculty and programming available and provide tuition assistance to those in need.

While annual fund gifts over the past five years have ranged in size from $20 to $12,000, a gift at any level is truly impactful. 

We are proud to to have a tradition of support and generosity. Beacon’s Annual Fund achieved 100% participation from our board and faculty in our first five years, and averages 94% participation from our families. What a huge accomplishment and statement of belief. Please do what you can and support Beacon today.  Thank You.
