SG H&SA spends approximately $70 per child every year for educational programs, field trip subsidies, assemblies, author visits and more! We hold several fundraisers throughout the year to raise funds and rely on parents to volunteer and participate, but we understand that not all parents have the time to dedicate to these efforts, so we're making it easier to help in a different way. If you'd like to make a donation directly to help support the H&SA, click Donate Now.
