ANNUAL FUND CAMPAIGNThe Annual Fund Campaign is our primary philanthropic appeal and the first gift we ask of the OLH College Prep community. OLH College Prep is a not-for-profit organization and depends on annual tax-deductible contributions to enhance the experience of an OLH College Prep education. Annual fund dollars go to support all facets of the curriculum including academics, the arts, and athletics. In short, the Annual Fund is absolutely crucial to the school's ability to provide the highest quality education while keeping it affordable for as many families as possible.
Tuition alone does not cover the cost of an OLH College Prep education and your gift will ensure the school has what it needs to continue to thrive. The Annual Fund gifts are used for the immediate needs of the school for the fiscal year given. Meeting our yearly Annual Fund goal is exceedingly important.
Your contribution to the Annual Fund provides an opportunity for students to receive an OLH College Prep education. Each gift, no matter the size, has an impact and the collective generosity is what makes the Our Lady of the Hills College Prep experience possible.
CONSIDER A MONTHLY GIFT
It keeps us our teachers resource ready. Monthly donors ensure we can respond to classroom and school needs that directly impact a student’s educational experience, without being forced to fundraise first. For example, when our teachers were asked to go to virtual teaching, the technological and training needs were imminent and had to be addressed right away, something we couldn’t have prepared for in our annual budget.
It provides predictable revenue. Monthly giving helps OLH avoid peaks and valleys of revenue, ensuring we can spend more time on academic excellence, college preparedness, and the individualized needs of every student- and less on fundraising.
It sustains our mission. The Flock supports the everyday challenges of the school, allowing us to reach more students and support growth of the Hill Country as a whole. Joining the Flock demonstrates an ongoing commitment to our mission.
It’s also affordable! Making smaller monthly payments over time means less strain on your wallet.
Additionally, it allows you (or your company) to be seen in the community as an integral part of the work we do. Every donation is tax deductible.
DOES MY COMPANY MATCH?
OLH is a nonprofit, private, preparatory high school, and in order to keep our tuition costs as low as possible, we rely on the generosity of our community to help provide financial aid options. Earnings from , the Annual Fund, Gala, Golf Classic, and our endowment help make up the difference between the actual cost of running OLH College Prep and the cost of tuition. Currently, around 40% of our Hawks benefit from tuition assistance and scholarships thanks to the support of these programs.
