The Cause:
The Ross School Foundation is a non-profit organization that raises funds to fill the gap between what the Ross School receives from local, state and federal sources and what it actually costs to run the school. The Foundation funds approximately 20% of Ross School’s annual budget each year. The vastmajority of these donations come from current school families, but we also receive generous donations from community members, alumni, grandparents and local businesses.

The Ross School Foundation was founded in 1992 as the cost to provide a high quality education to the children of Ross School began to exceed the amount the school received from government sources. In 2015-2016, the cost to educate a student at Ross School was $18,108. The gap in funding has grown to $3,500 per child. We ask the parents of every child in the school to donate to Foundation to close this gap. Last year, approximately 95% of parents donated to the Foundation Annual Giving Campaign. This year we are striving for 100% parent participation. Without their generous contributions, Ross School simply would not be the outstanding school it is today. Every contribution is 100% tax deductible.
