Many Ways to Give
To foster inclusion and be responsive to our community, Prospect Sierra works hard to keep tuition as low as possible. To support this goal, all Prospect Sierra families are invited to make a yearly gift to the Annual Fund, a practice common to private schools. This fund helps support the costs of educating our students, contributing to so many of the programs we offer.
We ask that all families support this fundraising effort at a level that is personally significant, and we consistently benefit from strong support amongst our parent community, with 100% participation being our goal. High rates of participation make a powerful statement, even supporting grant writing efforts at the school. Every gift received is truly meaningful and much appreciated.
As Prospect Sierra is a 501c3 organization, your unrestricted gifts are tax-deductible. Some employers also match gifts made by their employees. Contact the Advancement Office for more information.
