The Hammond Annual Fund
The Hammond Annual Fund remains Hammond’s first giving priority because it directly supports the school’s greatest assets-our students and teachers. The Hammond Annual Fund touches every aspect of each Skyhawk’s experiences inside and outside the classroom. The dollars raised each year are crucial in enabling the school to provide superior faculty, small class sizes, individual attention, state-of-the art technology, athletic success, and tremendous enrichment opportunities. Tuition alone cannot fund the entire operating budget of Hammond, as the Board of Trustees and Head of School are determined to minimize tuition increases. The Hammond Annual Fund, combined with auxiliary program income, supports the $1,200 difference between tuition and the true cost of a Hammond experience.
A tax deductible gift to the Hammond Annual Fund sends a powerful message that you believe in Hammond School and its mission. In addition, demonstrated support from the entire school community helps to influence the giving decision of foundations which further enhance the learning experiences the school can offer.
