A public charter school’s funding is based on the number of students who attend the school and the programs offered. Under the current funding mechanism provided by Maine’s Charter Law, each student’s home school administrative unit transfers a per-pupil allocation (EPS) to the charter school. HCA will not receive its first allocation until Sept. or October-AFTER THE SCHOOL YEAR BEGINS.
Yet, start up costs, typical of all new schools, will be incurred including:
Outfitting the space for learning
Summer training for teachers
Head of School and Assistant Head of School salaries
Contributions to HCA’s Founders Campaign will fund these costs.
Donors with gifts of $500 or greater will be recognized as HCA Founders in all of our printed and online materials and on the plaque in the entryway of the school building.
HCA gratefully accepts several methods of giving to help us provide our students with the greatest opportunities possible.
Gifts of Cash: Immediate donation
Gifts of Securities: Stocks, bonds and mutual funds (gifts of appreciated securities may result in capital gains tax savings)
Gifts of Property: Real estate, tangible personal property (subject to approval)

Testamentary: Bequests, life insurance, retirement plan assets
