Community Investment Campaign

Donate Today!

Why does Great Hearts ask parents to consider a donation to the annual Community Investment campaign?

  • The Community Investment Campaign provides our faculty and students with the resources they need to learn and thrive.
  • Unlike traditional public schools, charter schools do not receive local taxes nor state funding for school facilities, resulting in large gaps in revenue between charter schools and local school districts.
  • Your gift to Community Investment:
    • Covers the gap between what we need to deliver the top-tier education that our children deserve and what we receive from public funding.
    • Helps us pay, reward, and retain our excellent and dedicated faculty.
    • Keeps our teacher to student ratio smaller for more individualized attention.
    • Enables us to offer programs like art, music, and foreign language on a daily basis.

Where does my contribution go?

  • 100% of your contribution stays at Great Hearts Irving to support the core priorities of our academic model.

What does Great Hearts ask each family to give?

  • We ask each family to consider contributing $1,200 per student to help cover the gap between what we need for our academic model and what we receive from public funding.
  • Knowing that the financial situation is different for every family, we encourage every family to give as they are able.
  • Enrollment status is not dependent upon a family’s decision to contribute to Community Investment.

How can I participate?

  • Many families choose to spread out their contribution by making monthly gifts through Great Hearts Irving’s fiscal year, July 1 through June 30.
  • Other families make a one-time gift to the Community Investment campaign.
  • Every family’s participation, at whatever level, is vital to supporting the priorities of Great Hearts Irving.
  • Donate online or return our Community Investment Form.
