GIVING GUIDE:
ANNUAL FUND VS. CAMPAIGN

Here’s a quick breakdown to help you accomplish your giving goals.

In an annual operating budget of $4+ million, the Annual Fund contributes more than half of this amount toward staffing, programs and general expenses. We could not continue to function as an organization without this crucial support.
