Franklin Road Academy's Annual Fund
|Each fall, we launch the Annual Fund, an appeal to the entire FRA community for financial support that supplements the School’s annual operating budget.|
The Annual Fund provides funds for faculty salaries, financial aid, and for programmatic needs such as athletic uniforms, musical and play props, and teaching supplies. While tuition almost completely covers the cost of an FRA education, the Annual Fund plays an important role in making up the difference. And, because we understand that different areas of school-life hold significance to each giver, our Annual Fund program allows you to designate your gift.
Thanks to the collaborative generosity of FRA parents, alumni, faculty and staff, the Board of Trustees, parents of alumni, grandparents, and friends, last years’ Annual Fund greatly exceeded our budgeted goal. The 2022-23 Annual Fund begins in the fall of 2022 and closes on June 30, 2023. Gifts must be received by June 30, 2023, to receive credit for the 2022-23 Annual Fund. To get involved, or for further information, please contact Amanda Rush at (615) 369-4466. To donate or pledge online today, click here.
