Annual Appeal

The Annual Appeal is the most critical fund-raising effort for the day-to-day business of the University Laboratory School.  In a dynamic school such as ours, the most urgent needs may change even during the course of the academic year.  Annual Appeal gifts help ensure that the Laboratory School can continue to be responsive to the most important needs as they arise.  


Today, the Foundation generates nearly $400,000 through its annual appeal initiatives from a large number of Cub families from all over the country.


The Annual Appeal volunteer structure consists of a Chair, Vice Chair, Leadership Cabinet, Division Leaders and Callers.  The Leadership Cabinet assists the staff with plans, priorities, and policies of the Annual Appeal program and are typically selected from previous volunteers with a history of working on the Annual Appeal.


Members provide contact between the school, volunteers and supporters. They also promote annual gifts to the University Laboratory School through active donor engagement, solicitation, and stewardship.


All members lead by example by making their own gifts each year.  They assist with identifying and recruiting volunteers.  Lastly, they promote the Annual Appeal and the importance of current support.  Our goal is, and remains, participation.  In order to obtain the greatest amount of participation, we must make every effort to reach all families, informing each on how donations impact each and every student at the University Laboratory School.
