Annual Fund

    • One Gift. One Hundred Percent.

      One Gift. One Hundred Percent.

This year we have ONE simple goal for the Annual Fund:

To Receive ONE gift of any amount fromeveryone.

Our Annual Fund has a significant and immediate impact on the school’s operating budget. Because tuition alone does not cover the full cost of educating each student, we rely on Annual Fund gifts to make up the difference.

Our students directly benefit every day from the high-caliber faculty, innovative classroom programs, engaging extracurricular offerings and extraordinary campus grounds that are all supported by the Annual Fund.

We are calling upon all parents, grandparents, faculty/staff and trustees to give one gift of any amount to the Annual Fund. Please answer the call and give at a level of support that is meaningful to you.

Support our Spartans today! One gift. One hundred percent. One united school community. Together, we will ensure that St. Stephen’s continues to offer truly remarkable educational opportunities for each and every student.
Thank you for supporting the Annual Fund, First!

Our Students Directly Benefit from Your Gift

Like most independent schools, St. Stephen’s tuition does not cover the total expense of educating a student and providing enhanced academic, athletic and fine arts programs. A gift to the Annual Fund of $2,500 or more closes the gap between tuition and the true cost of educating each child. 
 

Your Support Matters

St. Stephen’s Episcopal School strives to inspire a lasting love of learning and spirit of service in every student so when they graduate from The Hill, our Spartans go on to live great lives of meaning and enrich the world. We believe the St. Stephen’s experience is truly transformational. That is why we ask you to help strengthen our exceptional programs and offerings by making a gift to the Annual Fund every year. Thank you for supporting our students!
