Gifts to St. Andrew’s come in many forms. Through our many parent volunteers, who give so generously of their time and energy, we enhance our students’ education and experiences at St. Andrew’s. And thanks to the financial generosity and support of our families and community, St. Andrew's students continue to thrive under the extraordinary leadership and expertise of our esteemed faculty and benefit from a diverse and challenging curriculum. With the support of our community, our students are connected to life and all the richness it has in store for them.
Financial gifts from St. Andrew’s supporters provide the only non-tuition source of income for the school. As an independent school, St. Andrew’s receives no financial support from federal, state, or local governments, or from the Episcopal Diocese. Tuition and fees do not cover all of the school’s operating budget, thus requiring us to seek funding from other sources. We depend heavily on a strong Annual Fund to maintain operations as well as additional contributions to Capital projects, our critical Financial Aid Program, and the Endowment Fund. Estate gifts to The Bailey Society additionally support the school.
St. Andrew's conducts a comprehensive Annual Fund First Campaign every fall. The Annual Fund is the first and most important gift we ask of all our families, alumni, trustees, faculty, staff, grandparents and friends as it directly impacts the day-to-day functionality of the school. The Annual Fund supports the programs and priorities that directly affect our students.
In the spring, the "Concert for Financial Aid" is held to raise funds for the St. Andrew’s Financial Aid program. Sponsors and guests are treated to a fabulous menu, awe-inspiring silent and live auctions and a show to remember at the best live venue in town - ALL for an important cause!
We invite all families to participate in both of these critical projects that ensure we are able to continue to nurture our students as they grow as Scholars, Athletes, Artists, and Servants.
We invite you to explore the many opportunities that are available for you and we look forward to your involvement! Please feel free to drop by our office at the Lower School at any time or reach us at 512.299.9809 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
