Why Donate?

HCCS only receives approximately 60% of every dollar that non-charter public schools receive for each enrolled student. We make up the funding gap through grants, private donations, and other fundraising activities. Community support is crucial to the launch and ongoing success of the school. HCCS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, which makes your donation tax deductible.

Our financial gap for the coming year is $335,000. Your generous contributions will help raise the funds necessary to expand our facility and provide high quality Mandarin immersion education to our children.
