The Annual Fund remains St. David’s School’s first giving priority because it touches every aspect of our community and directly supports the school’s greatest assets – our students and our teachers. Annual Fund gifts help keep tuition rates moderated without sacrificing the quality of our programs and our commitment to provide an exceptional, engaging and challenging educational experience.
With tuition covering about 90 percent of the annual budget, tax-deductible gifts to the Annual Fund help bridge the difference between tuition revenue and the school’s actual operating costs.
The Annual Fund is crucial in enabling the school to provide superior faculty, small class sizes, individualized attention, innovative curriculum and the unique experiences that make up St. David’s School. Each dollar raised is used to supplement the operating budget in a critical way. You name it – faculty and staff salaries and training, academic programming and resource tools, athletics, visual and performing arts – your dollars are put to work to provide the excellence you expect from a St. David’s education.
A gift to the Annual Fund sends a powerful message that you believe in the mission of St. David’s School. Together, we can succeed in preparing young men and women for college and life by challenging them to excel in the vital areas of faith, virtue and knowledge and to create tomorrow’s leaders, today.
