Support

Pursuing our mission to nurture each child in mind, body, and spirit
requires more than high-level academics. It requires the generous involvement
of all the members of our community in Boca Raton, South Florida, and beyond.

Every gift to Saint Andrew’s School makes a difference and allows us to deliver an outstanding private school education and a broad range of opportunities for our students and faculty. It is the ongoing commitment from our families and friends that makes Saint Andrew’s the vibrant independent school we are today. Your support represents the confidence you have in our institution, and we wish to assure you that your gift will be well and thoughtfully employed. Click here to support The Saint Andrew's Fund today.

The Saint Andrew's Fund

Saint Andrew’s School is an independent school and a non-profit institution. Like most independent schools, Saint Andrew’s relies on financial support beyond tuition to deliver outstanding programs to our students. All gifts to Saint Andrew’s are tax-deductible as allowed by law.

The Saint Andrew's Fund is designed to help cover the current year’s anticipated operating expenses. Tuition covers almost 89% of these expenses. Gifts to the Saint Andrew's Fund have an immediate and positive impact on our school community and benefit every child. It is our hope that every family will make a meaningful gift to the Saint Andrew's Fund. All gifts are appreciated. Click here to make your gift today.

Endowment

The growth of the Saint Andrew’s School endowment is one of our highest priorities. With a larger endowment, our school has greater flexibility in reacting to economic cycles and has additional resources to attract and retain the best and brightest Pre-K through Grade 12 students and faculty. Click here to support an endowment fund.

Endowment funds support scholarships, academic chairs, professional development, academic programming, facilities, and various other needs that advance the mission of Saint Andrew’s. All endowed funds are awarded in perpetuity.

Today, the school has almost 70 named endowed funds and endowment resources in excess of $19 million.

  • Unrestricted Gifts to Endowment

    Unrestricted gifts to endowment may be made at any gift level and will be directed to general endowment. Private school leadership, including colleges, often explains that gifts of unrestricted endowment are the most valuable kind. This is true, not just because of the invaluable financial security and flexibility they provide, but for the clear message they send: we truly believe in the mission of Saint Andrew's School.
  • Faculty Endowments

    Attractive opportunities exist to endow faculty chairs at Saint Andrew's School. With approximately 120 full-time faculty, endowed faculty funds reward and nourish the enrichment and continued excellence of the school's faculty. Not only do these funds recognize and encourage excellence in teaching by funding professional development, they also assist the school in recruiting and retaining the most qualified faculty to educate the students of today and tomorrow.
  • Student Endowments

    Perhaps one of Saint Andrew's most important needs is to increase scholarship endowment. Our school seeks motivated, talented students of strong character; a gift to endowment would improve Saint Andrew's ability to provide excellence in education to exemplary students. Independent schools of strong national reputation share in common an ability to matriculate students of the highest caliber who would otherwise not be able to afford full tuition. For Saint Andrew's, this capacity would directly improve the quality of education.

Capital Projects

Capital giving provides significant funds for new construction, renovation of facilities, and other special projects. In recent years, facility improvements have included the addition of the Stoops Family Gymnasium and renovations to the Middle School pods, the Saint Andrew’s School Track, the Toppel Family Courtyard, and the playground on the Nina and Edgar Otto Lower School Campus. Thanks to many within our community, construction of the Saint Andrew’s Welcome Center was completed and dedicated in 2014. In 2016, the Campus Bookstore, sponsored by Office Depot, was relocated to the Richman-Aker Student Commons and named Scots Corner.

Most recently, we opened the Dr. Albert Cohen Family Center for Entrepreneurial Studies and the Kessler Digital Media Institute. These state-of-the-art facilities transform the face of the Upper School campus as a hub for innovation. Many other campus projects and goals to increase the school’s endowment are planned.

Planned Giving

Saint Andrew's School established The A.D. and Lucy Henderson Legacy Society to recognize donors who include Saint Andrew's in their estate plans, make leadership gifts in support of endowment, and/or choose to establish an endowment fund.  Gifts to endowment provide financial stability, serve a variety of purposes, and provide a permanent source of annual resources that maintain and improve the educational experience at Saint Andrew’s.  Proceeds from these funds may be directed toward Faculty Enrichment and Development, Faculty Compensation, Financial Aid, Global Experiences, and/or Facilities Maintenance.

The financial tools used to grow endowment and create tax-wise legacies may take a variety of forms and will yield significant immediate and long-term benefits for both the donor and our school.  A strong endowment is a promise that our school’s mission will endure in perpetuity.  Please consider making your gift and help sustain Saint Andrew’s School for future generations of Scots.
