Discovery ways to support Fairhill
Over the years, Fairhill has evolved into a premier college-preparatory school for bright students with learning differences. We need your support to continue our mission. Donations enrich academic programs, support the finest staff, and provide special equipment and tools not covered in the school’s operating budget. Fairhill is grateful for the numerous ways in which families, board members, staff, alumni and friends support the school.
Ways to give:
The funds raised yearly through the Annual Fund Campaign provide tax-deductible dollars to the operating budget that enable Fairhill to keep tuition at a reasonable rate. Through prudent management and successful Annual Fund Campaigns, Fairhill has been able to keep tuition below that of other similar Dallas area private schools. Participation in the Annual Fund Campaign is vital to our mission.

Many companies offer a matching gift program to encourage philanthropy among their employees. Some of those companies will even match to spouses and retirees. By simply completing a matching gift form (on-line or paper), you may be able to double, or even triple, the impact of your gift! Contributions of any amount help make an immediate impact. To make it easier for you to request a matching gift, reach out to your company’s human resource departments to assist you.

Community Partner Programs
Let Your Purchases Support Fairhill!
Fairhill School partners with several organizations which contribute money back to our school. By enrolling in these partners programs, a portion of your day-to-day and holiday purchases can benefit Fairhill!
Fairhill is an AmazonSmile program partner. Go to www.smile.amazon.com (instead of amazon.com). Search for Fairhill and designate it as your charity of choice. Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to Fairhill School.
Tom Thumb’s Good Neighbor Program is a generous supporter with 1% of your purchases going back to support the school. To designate Fairhill as your charity of choice, you’ll first need a TT Reward Card. Go to TT’s Customer Service Desk and ask for a program form or download it here. Once you have completed the form, email it to [email protected] or go to the Customer Service Desk at your local Tom Thumb (Albertsons, Randalls, etc.) Use the code 2467 to designate contributions to Fairhill School.
Kroger’s Community Rewards also asks you to identify your preferred charity through its store card – the Kroger Card. Once you have a Kroger Card, create an on-line account. At the top of the menu, click “Community” where you will be asked to name the organization you want to benefit. Kroger designates a “pot of money” as charitable contribution and divides that according to participation among shoppers.
Note: the Kroger program requires re-enrollment each year. August 1 begins a new “charitable giving” year.
Box Tops for Education: Tear off box top graphic from participating items and drop in the box in the lobby. Each box top is $.10. Fairhill typically earns $500 each semester from Box Tops for Education!
Tuft & Needle: go to Tuft & Needle to order mattresses or other items offered on the site. Fairhill receives approximately 25% of each sale.
Funds from Community Partner Programs go into Parent Council funds which are used to pay for events such as Moms’ Day, Dads’ Day, Class Parties, etc.
The friends that I made during high school are still my friends to this day. We could relate to one another because we all had different learning disabilities and that was “normal”. I didn’t feel like an outcast at school like I use to before.
