Why your gift is needed
A culture of philanthropy is at the heart of a great educational institution. Revenue from tuition alone does not cover the full cost of educating students at St Paul School - or any independent school. Nearly XX percent of every St Paul student's education is made possible by philanthropic dollars, given through the Annual Fund. These tax-deductible contributions help bridge the gap between tuition and the actual cost of providing an exceptional educational experience for all students.
The Annual Fund is a tax-deductible opportunity for parents, alumni, grandparents, faculty, staff, trustees and friends of St Paul to support the resources and programs that are essential to our students' success. That is why a contribution to the Annual Fund is the first and most important gift we ask of every member of the St Paul community.
Why Your Participation Is Vital
High participation rates among the members of the St Paul community is a vote of confidence - a sign that our community invests in our students' future and supports the school's mission. Strong percentages of participation from our entire community have a direct impact on gifts from outside sources such as grant-making foundations, as high rates of participation are required by foundations before they will consider our grant requests. St Paul will be pursuing more and more grant funding opportunities in the coming years.
Outstanding faculty. Challenging and innovative academics. Award-winning fine arts and championship athletic programs.
Your Annual Fund gift makes all of these possible. How?
Tuition alone does not cover the cost of providing an exceptional educational experience for students at St Paul Christian School or any independent school. St Paul relies on gifts to the Annual Fund to help make up the difference. That is why your tax-deductible contribution to the Annual Fund is greatly appreciated.
