BigFish is a registered NH nonprofit corporation.
Our 501(c)(3) status was filed in August and we are awaiting IRS approval.
We are primarily funded by membership fees with no assistance from the state or federal government. We ask that families make a good faith effort to cover the full membership fees and to make financially supporting the cooperative a top family priority.
We are committed to making sure our community is economically diverse and therefore offer fee reductions based on need when the full fees are simply impossible for a family to pay. Also, all New Hampshire students K-12 are eligible to apply for scholarship money at The Children’s Scholarship Fund NH. The application process begins Jan. 1st and all scholarship money is allocated to students by August. (www.nh.scholarshipfund.org). It is too late for this school year, however, we encourage families to apply as soon as possible in January.
