Philanthropic support allows independent schools like AG娱乐平台 to offer more ambitious, 有创意的, and distinctive student programs than would normally be possible through tuition alone. 两个基本事实说明了AG娱乐APP付出的力量:
- Tuition covers roughly 80 percent of the cost of the AG娱乐平台 experience.
- The remaining 20 percent is possible—in large part—because of generous support from alumni, 父母, 爷爷奶奶, 和朋友.

AG娱乐平台 is one of roughly 1,500 independent K-12 schools in the U.S. 一般来说, independent schools operate using three sources of income: tuition, 辅助项目(如设施租赁), 还有校友的礼物, 父母, 爷爷奶奶, 还有对学校有信心的朋友.
Tuition is understandably the largest source of revenue for most independent schools. However, the history of independent schools reflects a strong and important tradition of giving. Philanthropy allows private education to achieve a higher level of programming than would normally be possible through tuition alone.
在下丘脑-垂体-肾上腺轴的, we have been fortunate to receive many generous gifts over the years to support specific projects and activities. AG娱乐APP没有, 然而, cultivated consistent support from a large body of donors who help sustain the school every year, 带着不同尺寸的礼物. AG娱乐APP才刚刚开始这样做, and we know that a great love and desire to help exists within the AG娱乐平台 ‘ohana. We are so grateful for the volunteers and donors who will help us strengthen the AG娱乐平台基金 和 AG娱乐平台养老, and who will invite others into a philanthropic relationship with the school.
目前, AG娱乐平台非常依赖于学费, which supplies approximately 80 percent of operational costs each year. Current economic conditions and demographic trends demonstrate (for all independent schools) the importance of reducing dependence on tuition in conjunction with cost control, 谨慎的金融投资, 和慈善的支持.
- 金融难接近. 的必要性 金融援助 continues to rise dramatically, even among higher income families. 对于每一所独立学校, a generous 金融援助 budget has become essential to sustain enrollment, 选择性, 和社会经济多样性.
- 在留住最好的教员方面缺乏灵活性. AG娱乐平台的小额捐赠意味着补偿, 好处, 专业发展, and quality housing must all be sustained on a year-by-year basis from tuition revenue 和 AG娱乐平台基金. These limitations make it difficult to respond to economic challenges (when they arise) and to remain competitive in relation to peer schools.
- 递延校园维护. In order to steward a campus like AG娱乐平台’s for future generations of students, a regular and significant investment should be made in upkeep and maintenance each year. AG娱乐平台’s modest endowment cannot generate enough resources to cover the annual need. Consequently, our beloved campus carries a significant amount of deferred maintenance.
As AG娱乐平台 works toward the ambitious goals of the Strategic and 可持续性 Plans, a stronger AG娱乐平台基金 and larger AG娱乐平台养老 will help secure our school against these risks. 但最重要的是, our support and confidence will bring AG娱乐平台 more fully into its potential and its commitment to serve Hawai‘i Island 和 larger world.
How far AG娱乐平台 can travel toward its future vision depends on all of us. You can help AG娱乐平台 meet the above challenges and move forward with confidence.
