Annual Fund



As a public school, Creative Arts Charter School receives state and local funding that covers most of our basic needs. Everything above that—everything that makes CACS so special—comes from our community fundraising. This year our overall fundraising goal is $325,000. That equates to almost 10% of our annual operating budget and will fund our entire arts program. We aim to raise $150,000 of that through our Annual Fund.

The Annual Fund is where our community gets to shine and show our collective spirit of generosity. Just as importantly to how much money we raise is the idea that each family participates in whatever way is meaningful to them. Getting as close to 100% participation as possible is a core goal of the Annual Fund.

The aim of our 100 in 100 drive was to reach 100% community participation in 100 days in the fall of 2016.

We’re still looking for participation, no matter the size of your contribution! $5, $500, $5,000—any amount that works for your family.

CACS has never achieved 100% participation. The closest we’ve ever come was 60% and with that we still managed to exceed our $150,000 goal.

Imagine what we can achieve together if we reach 100%.
