Annual Fund: Toward Sustainability
The Annual Fund is the most flexible and immediate source of income for our school; it supports students, teachers, staff, and virtually every other aspect of school life. We hope that each year, our community — including parents, teachers and staff, grandparents and other friends of our school — will contribute to the Annual Fund. Every gift matters.

HCA’s fiscal year ends on June 30th and therefore we would appreciate all donations to be completed by that date. Special arrangements can be made to accommodate pledges that extend over a longer period.
Are Annual Fund gifts eligible for my company’s “matching gifts” program?
Very possibly. Thousands of companies and corporate foundations match their employees’ gifts to eligible nonprofit organizations that meet the company’s guidelines. This can double or even triple your gift to HCA. Contact your HR or personnel office for your company’s specific matching gift policy. You may be asked to fill out a form or provide proof that a gift to HCA was made.
