The Annual Fund
Throughout the school year, there are several opportunities for you to help the School reach its goal of $250,000 for the Annual Fund. Whether it's by supporting an event or giving a one-time donation, we ask that you give as generously as you can. Gifts of every size are gratefully appreciated and impactful!
Like all independent schools, tuition does not cover the full cost to educate a student. In fact, only about 88% of operating expenses are covered by tuition revenue. St. Anne's School depends on the Annual Fund and the generosity of parents, grandparents, alumni, staff, trustees, and friends to support program and curricula enrichment and bridge this funding gap.
This year, the Annual Fund will support:
Program enhancements for students and professional development for teachers to improve our distance teaching and learning model. This year, the School invested in new teaching programs and applications, upgraded computers, and classroom cameras and microphones to facilitate a better distance learning experience.
Diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice programs for students and staff. It will also finance the newly formed DEIJ Committee, signaling our School’s commitment to creating an equitable community.
Safety measures to protect our community from COVID-19, including a school-wide symptom screening app, improved air handling throughout the building, touchless hand sanitizer stands, plexiglass desk barriers, tents for outdoor classrooms and PPE for our staff.
Increased campus security by adding cameras and fencing around the playground.
Financial assistance for families demonstrating increased need during these unprecedented times.
