Annual Fundraiser

When is it?

Where is it?

We rely on our annual fundraiser to help provide tuition scholarships for families in need of tuition assistance.

This year, Total Child plans to provide more than $25,000 in financial aid from public and private sources, or about 5 percent of the school’s budget.
