What Giving Does for Wornick — Today

Why is giving to independent schools so vital?
Independent Schools are non-profit institutions that rely on tuition and donations, rather than government funding, to operate. The best independent schools in the country try to keep tuition down by finding other ways to generate revenue, mostly by fundraising. In fact, almost all of these schools have tuition rates that do not cover the actual expense of educating the child. At Wornick, there is about a $5,000 difference between the cost of educating a student here and tuition. Your generosity bridges this gap.

Think of giving to Wornick in terms of baking a cake!
Tuition dollars pay for the cake, mostly, but tuition can’t do it alone. The Chai Excellence Fund makes up the difference and also helps keep the cake ingredients fresh and delicious. Without Chai Excellence, the cake would not be tasty. Now, say you’d like frosting, candle or a flower or two on top. Feast Your Mind will raise funds for the extra features that tailor the cake to your taste and make it more fun, special and extra delicious. Now, of course, we need kids to eat this amazing treat! Luckily, we have lots of those. But there would be no cake for them without you. Thank you!
