Great Hearts, a not-for-profit organization, provides an unparalleled opportunity for philanthropic commitment and return on investment. Our parents generously donate their time and treasure to each academy’s Community Investment program. Despite the fact that our scholars receive less public funding than district school students, Great Hearts provides a world-class education, with robust athletics and extra-curricular programs. The ongoing contributions of our parents allow Great Hearts to sustain results that often exceed those of elite or exclusive private schools in a public school setting open to all.
The return on investment is dramatic. For every dollar invested in starting a new Great Hearts academy and network of academies, or in supporting the training of new teachers and headmasters, Great Hearts receives many more dollars from the state in annual operational funds year-over-year.Donate Now
In order to provide our faculty and students with the resources they need to learn and thrive, we ask for support through our Community Investment campaign.
