The Foothill Fund Why Make a Gift?
Because tuition does not cover the full cost of a Foothill education.
While tuition provides the financial foundation for Foothill, your annual gifts provides the additional support for the depth, breadth, and quality of a Foothill education. The educational foundation of a lifetime for your student is funded through tuition revenue, endowment income, and your gifts to the Foothill Fund.
Because participation matters.
Like all independent schools, Foothill counts on the support of parents, friends, foundations, and corporations to help fund a well-rounded K-8 educational experience for its students. 100% parent participation sends the strongest message to foundations, corporations, and other donors—your gift counts!
Because Foothill is a “family school” and your philanthropy plays an important role.
Supporting Foothill has been a cornerstone of our community since the time Howell and Betty Webb founded the School in 1954. With your generosity, you can impact the Foothill students and the community in many ways.
- Academic programs for K-8 students
- Eleanor Pierson Scholarship Fund
- Enrichment, athletics, and the arts
- Library and technology
- Faculty professional development
Because every gift makes an impact.
The power of collective giving is transformational. Together, trustees, parents, faculty and staff, and friends ensure Foothill’s ability to provide the foundation of a lifetime for every student.
