The annual fund is a significant source of support for
University Cooperative School. Every fall, current and
alumni parents, staff, extended families, and student
alumni show their support for the school by contributing
generously. Annual Fund donations are added to the
school’s operating budget that, among other things, pays
for our exceptional faculty, supplies, and building
expenses. These gifts help bridge the gap between tuition
and the actual annual operation costs at University Co-op.
All families are expected to participate in the annual
fund. In keeping with University Co-op’s values of
community and giving, we strive for 100 percent current
family participation. For the 2012–2013 school year, our
annual fund goals are:
The Annual Fund is kicked off
every year with our annual fund
letter and one or more large school events, such
as MudFest and house parties.
