  • St. Paul's Annual Fund

    Gifts to the Annual Fund impact every aspect of the school, providing the resources to meet daily operational needs and supporting top priorities in financial aid, academic programs and faculty development. St. Paul’s tuition alone does not cover the cost to educate our students. The Annual Fund helps to fill the gap.
