The Annual Fund
Unrestricted gifts to the CHIME Annual Fund provide funds for the highest qualified faculty, paraprofessionals, specialists, textbooks, technology, art supplies, library books and facilities for each of the program sites.

The Annual Fund also fills the gap between the publicly funded portion of a CHIME education and the actual cost per student to fulfill the CHIME mission of high quality education for children with or without disabilities.  Annual fund gifts are the backbone of giving to CHIME because they allow the Institute to use the funds where they are most needed.

We thank you for all you do to support the school programs and the Institute.
