What is the Annual Fund?
Since it is necessary to offset the difference between what it costs to educate a child at Saint Andrew's and revenue from tuition, we must look to charitable contributions from trustees, parents, alumni, parents of alumni, grandparents, and friends of Saint Andrew's School. By using funds raised through the Annual Fund Campaign, Saint Andrew's raises money for the school's current operating needs.
It is important to note that independent schools across our country rely on a tradition of charitable giving to offset expenses. The Board of Trustees is committed to keeping tuition at a reasonable level; increasing gift income through the Annual Fund is one way to accomplish this task.
