No matter how you choose to support Cascades Academy, gifts of any size significantly impact the school and the learning experience of every student. Our two primary fundraisers of the year are the Annual Fund and the Auction. As a non-profit, independent school, Cascades Academy relies on the support of our generous community in order to meet the needs of our students and faculty on a daily basis.
The Annual Fund is a fundraising effort that the school conducts each year with the help of volunteers. Like most independent schools, the Annual Fund is the foundation of our fundraising efforts. An Annual Fund gift is the most important gift a donor can make to Cascades Academy each year. Everyone in the school community is asked to participate: parents, trustees, grandparents, staff, faculty, alumni and friends.
Gifts to the Annual Fund allow Cascades Academy to recruit and retain talented faculty members, provide scholarship assistance, and support an array of exceptional academic, arts and outdoor programming. Annual Fund dollars help balance the school’s operating budget each year. These dollars go to work immediately, providing the flexibility to allocate resources to the urgent needs and priorities of the school.
