Giving & Growing Together

Annual Giving
Each year, parents, Trustees, faculty, staff, grandparents, and friends impact the lives of our students by contributing to our Annual Giving Fund. From improving the campus to hiring additional staff, Annual Giving allows us to invest in Juniper Ridge Community School and enrich the experiences of our students and community.

We are continually growing closer to our aim of creating an excellent, sustainable, and community oriented school that students value and want to attend. We rely on the generosity of families, like yours, who value what we do. It is easy to think of being asked to contribute as an obligation.  We ask you to think of this fundraiser not as another drain on your family, but bestowing a treasured gift to a very worthy cause.  Your support of the Annual Give Fund helps to ensure that we continue to cultivate what we do well, and thrive into the future. Having financial security also allows us to control how we shape our school more fully.

Where do campaign funds go?

The funds raised through your annual giving are invested right back into our school community to provide professional development opportunities; academic and enrichment initiatives; teacher salaries and continuing education opportunities.

Each year 100% of our Annual Fund support allows Juniper Ridge Community School to thrive in our pursuit of education and care for the whole student.


Why is my participation important?

While we do have a monetary goal for this campaign, our core goal is 100% participation from all parents, Board members, faculty, and staff.  We are always seeking grants and gifts from outside sources and high participation is a vote of confidence. It is a sign to outside funders that the community is invested in supporting the school’s mission.


Our Goal:

Our 2018 goal is 100% participation. A gift from every JRCS family will make it possible to reach our monetary goal…even surpass our goal!  What we ask is for you to make a meaningful and fiscally comfortable contribution that works for your family. The only gift too small is no gift at all.
