Dear Weiss School Wolverines:
We hope you and your child(ren) have had a fantastic experience during the first quarter of the school year! This is the perfect opportunity to thank you for contributing to our fundraising efforts last school year, as we raised $140,000 from our Annual Fund, helping to offset some of our operating costs. Our goal for the Annual Fund this year is $190,000.
Like all private and independent schools, the tuition at The Weiss School does not cover the entirety of our annual operating costs. According to our September monthly financials, tuition revenue currently covers 79% of our operating costs. We work diligently to keep our tuition costs down, to offer our families the highest quality education program, and to make every day a special experience for your child(ren). To accomplish these goals, we must count on your financial support. Your contributions to our annual fund will allow us to continue funding our efforts to improve school safety and security (i.e., full-time police officer and full-time nurse) and special educational experiences.
We understand that each family has a unique giving capacity, and each donation, regardless of amount, is welcome and meaningful. We thoughtfully ask your family to support The Weiss School Annual Fund by contributing a minimum of $1,500 per student for the 2023-2024 school year. While all contributions are appreciated, we are deeply grateful to our families who can, and do, give beyond the minimum request. The Annual Fund is also a fantastic way for grandparents to invest in their grandchild(ren)’s educational journey. This year’s theme is “Forever Thankful,” because we are forever thankful for our amazing students and alumni, generous current and past parents, and supportive families. We strive to create forever memories with your children each day. Please consider making The Weiss School your top philanthropic priority and giving to the best of your ability. Remember, The Weiss School is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, and all donations are tax-deductible.
You can review your 2023-2024 Annual Fund pledge form for ways to give. You can drop off your donation during the car line or make your contribution online via the Donate Now link on our Annual Fund page. You can also use your camera to access the QR code below to go to the Annual Fund page on our website. All credit card fees are waived for all Annual Fund donations for the 2023-2024 school year.
