Annual Campaign dollars represent unrestricted funds that HHNE uses to bridge the gap between the operating budget and the actual cost of offering an excellent experience for our students.
HHNE is not unique in its need for resources above and beyond tuition revenue. Like all other independent schools, HHNE must bridge the gap between what tuition revenue provides and the operating costs of the school. Tuition actually provides only a small percentage of the operating budget. The remaining revenue is raised through a combination of contributions to the Annual Campaign, income from the school’s endowment, fundraising events and grants from federations and foundations.
Your meaningful gift to the HHNE Annual Campaign moves us closer to this year’s goal. The Annual Campaign is supported by a variety of the school’s constituencies, not just parents. Some of our strongest support is from alumni parents and community members who believe in the importance of HHNE. Donors include alumni, grandparents, past parents and community friends. Our goal is to increase our parent participation significantly in the coming year. We ask all HHNE families to make a meaningful contribution. A rate of high participation, especially amongst current families, strengthens our applications for grants and shows how important a Jewish high school education is to our larger community.
