As alumni, there is more than one way to continue to be involved in and support life on The Hill. Alumni gifts to St. Stephen’s are vital and help strengthen our community for both current and future Spartans. By supporting St. Stephen's, you help ensure all Spartans reap the benefits of a St. Stephen's education and that others have the opportunity to create the same life-long memories that you appreciate when thinking about your days on The Hill.
Annual Fund contributions help close the gap that exists between tuition and the actual cost of a St. Stephen’s education — approximately $2,500 per student. Because it supports the overall operating budget, the Annual Fund touches all aspects of the quality of our school. Gifts to the Annual Fund help distinguish St. Stephen's from other schools and strengthen the value of a St. Stephen’s education. We strive for 100 percent participation each year. Every gift really does make a difference.
Gifts to the Endowment provide perpetual financial support to the school to ensure that St. Stephen’s remains vibrant and strong. A larger endowment provides more interest income, which in turn provides enhanced faculty positions, enriched academic programs and resources, and increased student financial aid. Many endowment gifts are made as a result of estate planning and bequests; others are made through direct gifts of cash or securities. There are many ways for everyone to contribute to the endowment.
Planned Giving contributions provide continued financial support to the school after one's end of life. Often, alumni view Planned Giving as a way to leave a legacy and lasting impact on the school.
