The Elementary Diversity & Inclusion Fund (EDIF) is a campaign to increase ethnic and socio-economic diversity in the elementary school. The goal of the program is to serve families who are under-represented in grades K-6, particularly African-American/Black and Hispanic/Latino families.
A diverse community is part of the mission of Campbell Hall. We seek to reflect the population of our vast and multicultural city. Ethnic and socio-economic diversity has proved to be more achievable at the middle school and high school levels. Due to the long-term commitment in budgeting, however, we have not been able to provide the same degree of financial support to elementary school families as we have provided to secondary school families.
The goal of EDIF is to enroll two students in grades K-6 each year at a cost of $70,000. Annually, we will need to raise $70,000 over and above the previous year to continue to enroll two new students each year while maintaining support for EDIF students currently enrolled.
Applicant families apply for admissions and financial aid as they would normally, and the admissions and financial aid offices will determine the number and amounts of aid based on that year’s applicant pool and enrollment needs. The names and profiles will remain confidential. Annual reports will include assessment of the impact, challenges, and opportunities for growth of the EDIF. With the designated funds to EDIF, the school will be able to broaden their outreach efforts, and a more diverse elementary school will be achieved.
