2018-2019 by the Numbers
Income Comparison Analysis
- Contributions from individuals fell this year, as did our pool of individual donors: from 148 to 117. This difference reflects an industry-wide decrease in individual giving during the end of 2018.
- Contributions from foundations and corporations remained steady thanks to a renewed grant from the Sam Mazza Foundation.
- Total earned income grew by over $24,000 this year, reflecting a planned increase in tuition fees for families not receiving tuition assistance. This increase was part of a 2-year plan to bring full tuition closer to meeting the full student cost for a season.
Expense Comparison Analysis
- Programming expenses increased slightly due to our new programming (student troupe and summer camp), and our larger student body.
- Administrative costs held steady, following last year's transition of our teaching team from contractors to part-time employees.
Scholarships and Tuition Assistance
We came close to meeting our target of 50% of families receiving full or partial scholarships for the season.
