Annual Giving

Your gift to the Annual Fund is an investment in every student.

Your gift to the Annual Fund makes an immediate – and virtually limitless – impact on our school community. Gifts to the Annual Fund help close the gap between tuition and the actual cost to educate a Havern student. Your financial support will have a direct and immediate impact on all aspects of our community – the academic program, therapeutic services, arts, financial aid, professional development and our building and surrounding 13-acre campus. Additionally, annual funds provide the flexibility to respond quickly to new opportunities and unexpected needs.

For our 50th Anniversary, we have an Annual Fund goal of $75,000 and 100 percent participation from faculty, staff, families and trustees. Every contribution, of any size, helps Havern fulfill its mission of providing a caring, vibrant community where bright children with learning disabilities can reach their full academic potential.

You keep our children moving toward becoming successful, confident learners when you donate to the Annual Fund. We count on Havern parents, grandparents, alumni, parents of alumni, trustees, faculty, staff and friends to invest in our children.
