Why do independent schools like TFS need Annual Fund?
Tuition does not cover the full cost of educating a Fulton School student. In fact, tuition only covers 87% of that cost (mainly faculty/staff salaries and benefits). Because we have no outside subsidies from parishes, churches, or government, we depend on the financial generosity and loyalty of alumni, parents, grandparents, and friends of the school. These gifts are vitally important and directly affect our ability to maintain the School facility, provide tuition assistance, continue to improve programs and curriculum, and much more. Every donation, of every amount, makes a difference.
Why is participation so important?
The mark of a strong independent school is measured not just by the monies raised but by the community’s participation, which makes a statement about your confidence in us!
