In Santa Clara County the median income is $108,000, and SHNS families earn $29,000 or less per year. Many of the families served by SHNS are part of the surrounding community, where more than 90% of the elementary students qualify for free or reduced lunch programs.
The cost of providing a transformative SHNS education is over $15,000 per student per year. SHNS asks the families of our students to contribute $45 per month towards the cost of their education. The remaining 98% of the operating costs for SHNS comes from individual, foundation, and corporate donations. We depend on the generosity of our donors to keep our schools operating and to break the cycle of poverty through education.
