Ways to Support Magnolia Speech School

Magnolia Speech School is one of the premier schools in the Southeast for children with communication disorders. Because only one-quarter of our funding comes from tuition, we rely on the support of corporations, foundations, individuals, social organizations, and the community at large. Their generous donations help ensure that Magnolia Speech School remains a place Where Hope Speaks for our students.

Our cost per child is approximately $30,000 annually, and we supplement approximately 75% of each child’s tuition.

How We Use Donations

Magnolia Speech School uses donations to expand our services, provide children with quality classroom instruction, and support tuition for students.

Scholarships

Our cost per child is approximately $30,000 annually, and we supplement approximately 75% of each child’s tuition.

The Scholarship Fund helps offset the actual operating costs incurred for each child as well as the sliding scale tuition that helps all children afford our program. This challenges Magnolia Speech School to raise over $1 million in scholarships annually. Magnolia Speech School has always served a diverse population – racially, culturally, and economically.

Supporting Teachers

The staff of Magnolia Speech School is highly educated, extremely experienced, and passionate about their work. Though our specialized, skilled staff feel “called“ to this work, it is only reasonable to offer them, at the very least, salaries in the range of those in the public schools in Mississippi.

Clinic Needs

The clinic requires state-of-the-art technology, furnishings, therapy equipment, audiological equipment and computers to conduct the therapy sessions.

Capital and Capacity Improvements

These are one-time costs that help us to maintain a safe and comfortable learning environment. Projects listed in this category include basic expansion efforts to meet known demand, as well as regular building/grounds maintenance needs. Examples of needs include new carpet or basic storage space.

Endowment Fund

We are grateful to have an endowment fund, and it has become apparent that we need to build the principal on this fund to ensure the school’s mission.
