Beyond Tuition

At independent schools, tuition alone does not cover the full cost of providing a quality education. Cannon School relies on two fundraising programs to ensure continued excellence in the classroom and support for competitive athletics, exceptional art programs, innovative technology and meaningful service learning opportunities.

Your gifts to the Annual Fund will help cover operating expenses not covered by tuition. These annual tax-deductible gifts directly support all educational programs at Cannon, from state-of-the-art academic resources to competitive salaries that attract the very best faculty.

As new parents, we ask you to become members of our Cannon Society by making an Annual Fund gift at one of the Cannon Society levels that start at $1,000. We recognize, however, that a Cannon Society level gift may not be possible for all families and we hope that you will support the Annual Fund at a level that is right for you. We do ask that 100% of our current families support the Annual Fund.

Beyond the Annual Fund, Cannon School also asks families to consider supporting various Capital Campaign Projects that may include new building projects, facilities enhancements or endowments.
Parents are invited to support both of these fund-raising programs at the giving level that is right for their families.
