Greetings from Fulton Science Academy! We hope you are doing well.
This year our goal is to raise $200,000 with 100% participation from our families. Thanks to our generous families and community members, we have already raised $78,058 so far.
The funding from annual fundraising will be used for the third phase of our campus expansion, including the athletics field and arts center.
A heartfelt thank you for your support of our school. We are stronger together.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why does the FSA Have an Annual Fund?
Every day at Fulton Science Academy, we continue our journey towards becoming a top school in the nation by providing an innovative STEAM curriculum that benefits each student. Our journey is just beginning, and you are an essential part of it! So far, we have completed the first two phases of our school campus master plan. We now need your help to complete the third phase of the campus expansion, which includes an athletic field and arts center, among many other things.
What is the Annual Fund?
The FSA Annual Fund is the cornerstone of Fulton Science Academy’s fundraising efforts. This crucial fund is an integral part of our school’s journey. Gifts enable us to invest in essential resources for the children that are not covered by tuition alone. Your donation shows confidence in our school’s mission to inspire confident, compassionate students and build leaders who demonstrate exceptional character.
Who Benefits from the FSA Annual Fund?
Our precious students are always our primary focal point and our very top priority! Every single child brings such uniqueness to FSA, and we see every child as a gift! We teach our students about the impact one person can make in life. One unique question posed during a class can spark lively debate. One smile can turn someone’s frown upside down. One teacher can make a life-long impact on your son or daughter. The actions of one can positively impact so many others! Giving is a beautiful and contagious experience. A gift to the FSA Annual Fund benefits the entire FSA school.
Why Should I Give?
We hope you would donate to the FSA Annual Fund because you believe in our school’s work, you support the passion and dedication of our faculty, and you can see the positive impact an FSA education is having on your child. Contributions to the Annual Fund will be put to use right away. They will help pay for expenses that are not covered by tuition alone, such as extracurricular activities and building expansion.
How Much Should I Give?
Please consider giving as much as you can! The gift of education is a gift that keeps on giving. To help us reach our goal, a donation of $300 per student is suggested, but every gift helps! Whether your contribution is $10, or $10,000, giving offers a positive statement of your belief in FSA and pride in your family’s FSA experience.
When Should I Donate?
The earlier we receive your donation, the sooner we can use it to benefit our students. While we encourage all families to make their pledges by December 31, Annual Fund payments are accepted until June 30. For maximum year-end tax benefits, we suggest a donation before 12/31/2020.
Can Others Donate?
Yes! Please share our donation link with friends, family, and others.
I Already Pay Tuition. Why Am I Being Asked to Pay More to the School?
Put quite simply, given our competitive rates, if we relied on tuition alone to fund the many wonderful attributes that make FSA so special, our tuition costs would skyrocket. Most prestigious private schools like ours rely upon robust Annual Funds with contributions from families that directly support every aspect of school life. Your gift(s) to the FSA Annual Fund supports the people and programs that make us an award-winning private school. Through these tax-deductible gifts, we are able to recruit and retain talented teachers, offer small class sizes, provide cutting-edge technology, enjoy award-winning extracurricular teams, and fill our beautiful new campus with laughter, learning, and life-long friendships that form while studying here.
Is FSA Able to Receive Matching Gifts from My Company?
Absolutely! FSA welcomes corporate support through sponsorships and generous matching gift programs. Please ask your employer about Matching Gift Programs that support K–12 schools. This is a great way to double and sometimes triple your gift to FSA. Please check with your employer.
Are Donations Tax Deductible?
Yes. As a registered nonprofit, all gifts are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. If you make a gift online, you will receive a customized thank you email that can also serve as a receipt for your donation.
Are There Incentives to Donate?
Although we would hope your primary purpose for donating is to support the campaign and show your long-term investment in our school and the education we are so honored to provide to your child(ren), we also recognize the value and value of celebrating when milestones are reached. As such, we have established rewards ranging from dress-down days to catered lunches to ice cream socials, depending upon the percent of parent participants. Best of all, if 100% of our families make a gift (regardless of size), Principal Sener has agreed to be slimed! 🙂
