Support HRA

A Supportive Community

Alumni, parents, grandparents and friends of HRA have generously supported our school for over 60 years.  We invite you to join this remarkable tradition by making your own gift this year. Your gift to the Annual Fund is your vote of confidence in HRA's mission, leadership, and future.
The recently enacted Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, or CARES Act, includes several new tax incentives for 2020 that encourage charitable giving. Among them: Donors may deduct 100% of cash contributions to most public charities. Even if you do not itemize your deductions, you can still reduce your taxable income by up to $300 ($600 for married couples) for cash contributions.
As an independent school, HRA relies on this tradition of giving to help fulfill its mission and provide support to students and their families. Tuition alone covers only 90 percent of the cost to provide the complete HRA experience. The rest comes from charitable giving. Unlike tuition, contributions to the Annual Fund may be 100 percent tax-deductible and allow each family and friend to give at the level at which they are able.

Philanthropic gifts specifically support the people and programs that make HRA the great school that it is: talented teachers, small classes, enriching arts and athletics programs, library and instructional resources, technology and much more.
Every gift, no matter what size, is meaningful to HRA and its students.
