Tara Hall receives less than 1/2% of its annual funds from federal funding.
(…and that funding is strictly earmarked for books and school supplies.)
Note: Tara Hall’s fiscal year runs from October 1st through September 30th and these figures are from 2012-2013.
In addition to support from foundations and grants, Tara Hall relies heavily on contributions from individuals and funds raised through activities and events. Those who support Tara Hall through donations and/or involvement are called “The Kings’ Court.”
