HASA received its largest non-capital gift in its history. The anonymous $500,000 donation will be used to establish a scholarship fund for students and clients who may otherwise be unable to afford tuition at Gateway School or for therapeutic services in the Clinic.
The Board of Directors decided on an investment vehicle for the funds and hopes to have $25,000 each year available for new scholarships without utilizing the principal gift, providing an ongoing foundation of support for financial aid services. Since the inception of the endowment, another $56,774 has been added to the fund.
HASA has provided more than $300,000 in charitable care to children and adults who would otherwise be unable to receive educational and therapeutic services from HASA clinicians and educators. This gift will ensure that we will be able to help even more families communicate more effectively.
