How the Annual Fund Supports our Programs and our Students

Your support of the Annual Fund directly impacts every aspect of the lives and learning that Yellow Wood Academy students experience each day.  It enables Yellow Wood Academy to maintain its tradition of excellence while encouraging a diverse student body, and allows Yellow Wood Academy the opportunity to enrich our program with activities that would be unavailable to us if we were to operate on tuition revenue alone. 

As a key part of our fundraising program, the Annual Fund bridges the gap between what tuition covers and the full cost of a Yellow Wood Academy education. 95.57% of our current budget covers operational costs, leaving only a small fraction of our income for programs and materials. The list of opportunities your gift provides is long, but your most important impact will be on the future of the students at Yellow Wood Academy. Your generous gift will aid in funding technological innovations and expanding offerings in academics, the arts, and clubs.

Yellow Wood Academy is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization that receives no public funding. Gifts to YWA may be tax-deductible. For more information, please contact Amy Martin, Director of Development at 206-236-1095 ext. 108.
