Types of giving

Haas Hall Academy’s Annual Fund directly supports the innovative, academic programs that have made our institution one of the finest in the nation. Unfortunately, charter schools in Arkansas receive the state minimum per child, but do not receive any additional monies from local millages. The Annual Fund closes the gap in public school funding inequalities and ensures our academic offerings provide the experiences and challenges necessary to ready our students for the academic challenges that await them in their higher education pursuits.

Major Gifts

Private support makes a significant difference in the daily lives of our scholars. For example, in the fall of 2015, Haas Hall Academy named our new Fayetteville campus— The Starr Scholar Center —after Billie Jo Starr, a great champion of education who has done so much to enrich the quality of life in Northwest Arkansas and specifically, the city of Fayetteville.

Annual Fund

Annual giving by families and friends of Haas Hall Academy is a vital part of our development program. Unrestricted gifts provide a crucial bridge between state funds and the actual cost of running Haas Hall Academy.

Giving to the Annual Fund allows the school to respond to pressing needs and to provide the flexibility to meet the changing needs of our scholars and the School.
