Annual Fund

What is The Annual Fund?

The Annual Fund is the cornerstone of our fundraising program. All gifts to this important effort touch every aspect of life at our school and help us meet our budgeted needs during the current school year. Your gifts ensure that our students will benefit from all that Armstrong has to offer, including low student teacher ratio, small group instruction, a state-of-the-art learning positive learning environments, and research based curriculum designed for the dyslexic learner.

Why is it important to Support The Armstrong Annual Fund?

Your participation in The Armstrong Annual Fund demonstrates your commitment to and belief in the school's mission. Generosity and loyalty from our community of parents, alumni, trustees, alumni parents, grandparents, faculty and staff allow Armstrong to offer an exceptional educational experience to all of our students. Each year we ask every member of our community to make a gift to the Annual Fund. Every gift makes a difference.

How Will my Gift be Used?

As part of the current year's operating budget, your gift will immediately benefit the students and faculty at Armstrong. The Annual Fund supports every aspect of the school, including our students, faculty, facilities, and programs.
