Understanding Future Educational Needs
Currently, The BackStoppers provides more than $200,000 per year for education-related expenses of the families it serves. Given the continuing rise in tuition and other educational costs, along with the average annual growth in the number of families and children served, our projections show that we will need a minimum of $5.0 million more over the next two decades to meet these educational obligations.
The BackStoppers’ Board has set a goal for its Education Fund at $5,000,000. One hundred percent of the Board members have already pledged to support this Campaign.
The BackStoppers is seeking to raise this amount over the next several years to build a fully-funded reserve for education that can eventually provide ongoing, sufficient income to meet these growing needs.
