Annual Fund

Every Gift. Every Blazer. Every Day.

Since 1876, HB has given girls the tools needed to confidently embrace every opportunity that exists for them beyond our Shaker Heights campus. Consider a gift to the Annual Fund to ensure HB remains a place where girls are empowered to ask questions, challenge conventions, and explore endless possibilities. The Annual Fund supports:

Academic & Experiential Opportunities
