Your support makes excellence possible
Haas Hall Academy’s rich and diverse academic offerings are largely made possible by the generous gifts received throughout the year. Donations enable us to provide our scholars with the finest, accelerated college preparatory education in the state of Arkansas.

Many people don’t realize that in the state of Arkansas, public open-enrollment charter schools receive less funding than traditional school districts.

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.
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 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.

Before you give
Our academic offerings are largely made possible by generous gifts received throughout the year.
Charter schools receive 36% to 68% less funding than traditional school districts.
Matching gifts are when companies match their employee’s contributions to secondary schools, effectively doubling the donation.
Donations to fundraising events, the Annual Fund Campaign, matching gifts, and special campaigns contribute to the support of the academy.
Gifts are used for updating technology, assisting faculty with classroom materials, professional development, and supporting scholars who need assistance purchasing uniforms, school lunches, and AP testing fees.
