The Annual Fund is a recurring, year-long fundraising campaign that provides unrestricted, immediate-use dollars in support of the school’s rigorous curriculum, dedicated teachers, and range of co-curricular opportunities. Outside of tuition, which provides 90% of the Academy’s operating funds, the Annual Fund is the major source of revenue for Houghton Academy. Gifts to the Annual Fund will support tuition assistance and/or specific program innovation and improvement. The Annual Fund is a meaningful way for donors to provide vital support for continuous school improvements that support the Houghton Academy mission “to offer young people a college preparatory education within the framework of a Christian worldview.”
We hope you will consider making a yearly Annual Fund donation. Every gift counts. Scripture says, “...give as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD your God.” (Deuteronomy 16:17), indicating some are able to give more than others. Our hope is that every Academy stakeholder – past, present, and future – will prayerfully participate in some way. Sustaining gifts range in size from a few dollars into the thousands. Gifts of all sizes are welcome; each one demonstrates a donor’s heartfelt support of the students and the mission of Houghton Academy. The Academy invites all stakeholders to invest in this annual fundraising campaign by making an Annual Fund contribution, promoting the success of the Academy.
