What is the KO Annual Fund?

In many ways, the KO Annual Fund is KO’s economic lifeline. Gifts to this fund fuel all core aspects of the KO experience.

Additionally, the KO Annual Fund makes up the difference between tuition income and the actual cost of educating our students. Tuition typically funds 89% of our school’s operating budget. The remaining 11% is paid for by the KO Annual Fund and endowment earnings. Consequently, all students benefit from gifts to the KO Annual Fund!
