Why and How to Give


Our children’s education is an important and significant investment, and because FRA is an independent school, it does not receive any funding in addition to tuition and charitable gifts. In fact, tuition does not cover the cost of an FRA education and the Annual Fund is the foundation of the school’s fundraising efforts each year.

Tuition represents approximately 89% of the costs required to educate FRA students. Annual fund contributions go directly toward supporting faculty salaries, academic and extracurricular program costs, tuition assistance, and other operational expenses that immediately benefit all FRA students.

Since FRA’s founding in 1971, the school has relied on these generous contributions. We encourage you to continue this legacy of generosity by making FRA one of your top three philanthropic priorities and give annually commensurate with your financial ability. We realize that giving is a highly personal matter, and all gifts, no matter the size, are welcome and appreciated by our school.
