St. Paul’s greatest financial need is unrestricted funds that we can put to work right away. Tuition alone does not cover the cost of educating a student at St. Paul’s Episcopal Day School. We want to give each child access to programs and resources that will help them become confident learners, ethical leaders, and compassionate, engaged citizens. The Annual Fund provides the additional funds needed to turn day-to-day needs into the exceptional educational experience that only St. Paul’s can provide.
That is why a gift to the Annual Fund is the most important gift we ask of every trustee, alumni, parent, grandparent, faculty member and friend of St. Paul’s. Gifts range from $10 to more than $10,000, and are used to meet the school’s most important priorities.
Your gift to the Annual Fund:
Allows our experienced teachers to attend professional development programs locally, regionally and nationally. Our teachers strive to strengthen their skills as great educators, and also seek to gain knowledge that will address student needs across grade levels and disciplines as they serve as a resource for their peers.
Provides equipment and resources at each grade level. Each year our teachers evaluate the latest texts for a specific curriculum focus, and select the best teaching resources for our students. This fall, students opened the pages of brand new language arts textbooks, and our teacher are beginning review math texts to share in August 2017.
- Provides for the daily needs of operating a school that often go unnoticed during our busy days.
The Annual Fund goal is $250,000 and 100% participation from our current parents.
We are asking members of our community to make a donation or pledge by December 31. Pledges can be paid through June 30, 2018, but our commitments now will help the school move forward with confidence.
