Community Update & Financial Report

Each year, HSA makes a commitment to fund a portion of the school’s operating budget.  These funds are critical to paying ongoing operational expenses (such as teachers’ salaries) and help keep tuition at an affordable rate.  HSA’s commitment to the operating budget for the 2018 – 2019 school year has been set at $90,000.  These funds are raised through a series of fundraising activities, including the annual Benefit, the Spring Golf event, Gift Shop sales, Sponsorships and Luck of the Draw.  After HSA’s $90,000 fundraising commitment to the operational budget is met, the excess funds are applied toward capital improvements/enhancements.  HSA’s Financial Plan for the 2018-2019 year (as outlined below) provides fundraising goals for each major event/program for this fiscal year.

Luck of the Draw: 33%

Fall Event: 33%

Golf Event: 7%
