This world needs individuals with minds that think, hearts that love, and hands that help. Contributing to our Annual Fund means we can continue to offer everything needed for children to grow into leaders who have the skills necessary to make a positive difference in the future.
What is the Annual Fund?
All Saints’ Episcopal Day School is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit that relies solely upon tuition revenue and philanthropic gifts to meet operating expenses. Our Annual Fund is a yearly appeal to the All Saints’ community — parents, alumni parents, parishioners, faculty and Board of Trustees — to raise funds that bridge the gap between tuition income and the total cost to educated our students. Tuition covers 77% of the school’s operating cost. The remainder is dependent upon fundraising. Annual fund dollars support in-class enrichment programs (Spanish, Be Fit, Music, Library and Chapel) and the salaries of teacher assistants.
Why give to the Annual Fund?
We are committed to providing an exceptional preschool education, creating minds that think, hearts that love, and hands that help. Annual fund donations sustain the school’s excellence by providing in-class enrichment programs and having classroom assistants. In fact, Melanie Kowalik “Ms. Mo” our Orange Room teacher and Chaplain, won the Southwestern Association of Episcopal Schools – Connie Wootton Teaching Award for Excellence in Education. She was the first winner in the preschool division. We are proud of our curriculum and faculty that sets our school apart from others. Classroom assistants, now more than ever, are a critical part of sustaining the pod environment within the school to maintain health and safety measures.
Each year, we ask you to support the school by making a tax-deductible donation to the annual fund. Our goal is 100% participation from our families, faculty and Board of Trustees. There is strength in numbers and gifts of all sizes make a difference and benefit every student, every day.
How much should I give?
We encourage families, faculty and Board of Trustees to consider an amount that is meaningful to them. Every gift makes a difference, and we value every commitment to the annual fund. The amount not covered by tuition is $675. This is the amount that tuition would need to be increased, per student, if we did not have this yearly donation drive. Many employers offer matching gift programs that could double your donation. We encourage you to check with your employer’s Human Resources department.
