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 and state-of-the-art facilities.
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 St. Andrew's Fund
to maintain operations as well as additional contributions to capital projects
, our critical Financial Aid Program
, and the Endowment Fund
. Estate gifts and bequests to The Bailey Society
additionally support the school.
St. Andrew's conducts a comprehensive St. Andrew's Fund Campaign every fall. This 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 Fund supports the programs and priorities that directly affect our students.
In the spring, the Spring Gala 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 - ALL for an important cause!
