HeadsUp Faces Difficult Budget Cuts for 2021 School Year


Our FY21 funding has been highly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of the events we rely on for fundraising, including the SchoolsRule gala, have been canceled, and business donations are down as well. After several years at nearly $500K, we had to build a budget at $225K. Cuts were spread equally across the divisions (elementary, middle, high all reduced by 48%). We are thankful that our funding can still have impact for students in the areas of enrichment, wellness and college counseling but we need support to carry this on throughout the academic year. 

HeadsUp needs and welcomes volunteers of all kinds to fulfill our mission. Let us know if you’d like to help with an event or ongoing operational activities, or if you’d be interested in joining our board.
