The Children's House Annual Fund

Annual FundFrom the humble environment of a renovated farmhouse in 1984 to the current 8-acre campus, friends of The Children’s House have invested their time, talent, and resources to sustain and grow our school into what it is today.

Annual Fund Goal
Because of COVID-19, the 2020 gala was not able to happen. Each year, the gala raises over $100,000 for the school. To help offset this loss, please support the Annual Fund by the end of our fiscal year, June 30, 2020. 

The annual fund fills the gap in our operating budget while keeping tuition affordable and ensuring the tuition assistance program remains a core part of our school’s mission.

You can be part of the vitality of our school by making a gift today. Thank you.
