THE ANNUAL FUND
The tuition Advanced Diagnostic Institute charges only covers about 90% of its cost to educate each student. The Board of Trustees purposely sets tuition below this actual cost in order to keep ADI more affordable to a larger number of families. As a result, it remains an amazing place where families from all walks of life can continue to send their children to experience ADI . Many believe that this is one of the key elements that makes ADI so special. So ADI must depend on other sources of income beyond tuition to meet the expenses and operational needs of running an automotive school. All are encouraged to give as generously as possible to help strengthen ADI for another year.
ENDOWMENT GROWTH – AREAS OF FOCUS
The school’s ability to fulfill many of its current and future objectives, without substantially raising tuition and fees, depends on the amount of income that can be generated from the endowment. Every dollar of endowment represents a school’s capacity to provide for essential needs, such as financial aid, program funding, faculty support, and property management. Overall, endowments represent good stewardship of financial resources by creating self-generating income streams.
The goal is to increase its endowment by raising $75,000
ADI must continue to grow its endowment to fund need-based financial aid and merit-based scholarships that today support 45% of the student body. This aid enables The Prep to maintain a diverse student body while keeping tuition costs low.
Development for Faculty and Staff
The values ongoing professional development opportunities for its talented and dedicated faculty and staff. Advances in technology and teaching methodologies have created the need for faculty to remain at the forefront of their fields by pursuing graduate studies, and attending workshops and training. Ongoing professional instruction is made possible through The Prep’s endowment funds.
