FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE ANNUAL FUND
DOESN'T TUITION COVER COSTS AT COTTAGE?
Tuition covers most of the operating costs but we rely on the Fall Apple Sale and our Annual Fund to make up the gap between tuition and our expenses.
IS MY GIFT TO THE ANNUAL FUND A TAXDEDUCTIBLE
Absolutely! Cottage is a 501(c) nonprofit organization and contributions to the Annual Fund are taxdeductible. We will thank you for your gift with a letter confirming your donation that should be kept for tax purposes.

You can select from any level of support but we ask Cottage Families to contribute at the $500 level. (If you have multiple children attending Cottage, we ask for a $300 additional donation.)
