What is the Annual Fund?

The Annual Fund is a powerful way to make a direct impact on students at SGS. As a tuition driven school, some costs are not covered by tuition alone. The Annual Fund is a way to cover those costs without cutting programs or raising tuition. This year the school’s goal is to raise approximately $500 more per student. 

SGS is proud to be a debt-free institution. Decades of gifts from parents, faculty, board members, alumni and others to the Annual Fund have helped SGS remain debt free, keep tuition costs down, and provide the best possible education for our students. Gifts directed to the Annual Fund are put to use in a variety of ways to support and enable programs that nurture our environment for creative, innovative, and top-notch education. 

Why Give?

As a tuition driven school, Saint George’s is sustained by a pay it forward concept. Gifts to the Annual Fund acknowledge the confidence and belief donors have in the school and in our mission.

Do small gifts really make a difference?

Yes! Small gifts make the world go round, and in our case they Power the Dragon! A gift of any amount is valuable as not only to help us reach our monetary goals, but also to display a support and confidence in the mission of SGS. In the 2016-17 over 30% of gifts made to the annual fund were $100 or less. We understand and respect that every family has different capacity of available giving. Saint George’s is grateful for your continued support at whatever level you are able to donate.
