The Annual Campaign

Families at all High Tech High schools are encouraged to donate to the Annual Fund for their school or program close to them. The year-long fundraising campaign (July 1-June 30 annually) raises funds through requests to families and friends of HTH schools; tax-deductible donations made to our schools, projects, or programs give teachers and school leaders flexibility to pivot and address needs which directly benefit students and teachers.

The Need

HTH_GSE - 1Needs vary from school to school, but generally fall into the following areas:

  • Teaching Team Budgets for a rich year of teaching and learning
  • Small class size, personalized teacher-student relationships
  • Updating of aging technology tools in all areas of learning
  • Innovative classroom project supplies and resources
  • MakerSpaces
  • Commons and classroom furnishings
  • Science lab retrofitting
  • One-to-One College Advising for high school students
  • Academic Coaching to serve our diverse community of learners
  • College immersion activities and test prep for Low Income Students
  • Fabrication Laboratory Facilities (multi-discipline engineering, computing and art labs)
