The Howard Fund

Because tuition supports only 90% of the School's operating budget, the Howard Fund (formerly the Annual Fund) is the single, most important fundraising opportunity each year. Join 100% of our faculty and staff and 100% of our Board of Trustees and make a gift to the Howard Fund today. Your participation and generosity makes ALL the difference in providing life-changing opportunities to each and every Howard student.
