From the Director of Advancement
Philanthropy is foundational to Head-Royce School. For 130 years we have been a beacon of academic excellence in the East Bay, with mission-driven programs, facilities, and faculty all made possible through the generosity of our extended community. In the 2016-2017 school year, once again Head-Royce parents, alumni, employees, grandparents, parents of alumni and friends joined together in support of our school. Your generosity set new records in Annual Giving, with over $1.5 Million in donations to directly support the student experience and our endowment has grown to an all-time high, exceeding $19.5 Million. Collectively these funds ensure the strength and vibrancy of Head-Royce for today's students and for generations of students to come. Thank you for supporting Head-Royce!

Cathy & David Epstein
We set up our plan for giving to honor what has been so important in our lives: our children Alison Epstein Trujillo ‘97 and Ben Epstein ‘01 who benefitted greatly from their HRS education, Catherine's career as a teacher and administrator at HRS and David's career as a psychiatric social worker and administrator at Canyon Manor Residential Treatment Facility. We have both been blessed with wonderful colleagues in our respective workplaces over a period of nearly 40 years. Giving back is a way for us to acknowledge the importance of both excellent education and comprehensive mental health care in our communities.
