The Annual Fund
The Annual Fund is the cornerstone of all fundraising at Harpeth Hall. As an independent school, Harpeth Hall receives no government funding and relies on tuition and charitable gifts as the primary source of funding. Your gift immediately benefits each student and faculty member by enriching essential academic and co-curricular programs including faculty professional development, financial aid, service learning and other co-curricular offerings. It also provides for the ongoing maintenance and upkeep of our beautiful aboretum campus and facilities. The funds raised go directly into the operating budget and are used the same year they are received.
The Annual Fund
- Makes a difference in the life of every girl and young woman at Harpeth Hall by providing them a world-class education and opportunities to develop their highest potential.
- Helps Harpeth Hall attract and retain the best teachers and create an optimal learning environment for girls.
- Keeps Harpeth Hall tuition as affordable as possible while also helping the school admit bright, multi-talented girls who, due to lack of adequate financial resources, would not otherwise be able to attend.
- Demonstrates your commitment to the mission of Harpeth Hall as we educate generations of women to think critically, to lead confidently, and to live honorably.
The Nova Fidelitas Society recognizes young alumnae who for the past decade have consistently supported the annual fund since their graduation.
