Annual Fund Appeal
A message from our Director and board Chairman.
As we celebrate our 50th Anniversary at St. Paul’s School, this is the perfect opportunity to look towards the future to ensure we can carry out our love of learning for generations to come.
You may not be aware, but by design, tuition is approximately 11% less than the true annual cost of a St. Paul’s education. This intentional tuition gap opens our doors to a greater population of students and keeps our tuition competitive with other independent schools. Historically, we have been blessed to make up this gap through the generosity of our greater community, but many of these gifts are not promised to us annually.
This is a pivotal moment in our school’s history to build a stable source of financial strength and solvency to carry us into the next 50 years. Moving towards an annual giving campaign provides an opportunity for families, alumni, and friends to support the annual budgetary deficit with a tax-deductible donation to our school and furnishes sustainable support St. Paul’s School can rely for years to come.
Below is a brochure about the Annual Fund and how this fund will serve as an educational supplement for our SPS community. Please review this information and consider making a gift that is meaningful to you. We are striving for an Annual Fund that is inclusive, so that all members of our wonderful community can feel they are truly making an impact on St. Paul’s School. We are extremely grateful of any gift, no matter the size.
