What is the Annual Giving Campaign?
Our Annual Giving Campaign is one of three intentional fundraisers St. James holds each school year. As a non-profit organization, we rely on fundraising, grants, investments, and tuition to support our mission of developing our children to reach their fullest potential. Tuition covers approximately 70% of our operating costs, and Annual Giving helps us bridge the gap with an additional 6% of our actual costs to provide the resources necessary to maintain an outstanding educational experience for our scholars.
Why should we give to St. James?
Giving to the Annual Giving Campaign is an investment opportunity with valuable returns. St. James Episcopal School is creating high school students who graduate at the top of their class, college students who continue their education to earn higher level degrees, and alumni who become compassionate leaders in the community. Through providing our Christian foundation and rigorous curriculum, we are developing scholars of strong faith, confidence, and character, and we need your help to continue this positive growth for generations of scholars to come!
What is the Annual Giving Campaign Goal?
We are aiming to reach $160,000 and 100% Family Participation! 100% of our generous Jaguar families have donated to the Annual Giving Campaign for the past two years! Our goal has become our reality, and we hope to make this the third year in a row we receive 100% family participation. This is especially important as we seek grants from foundations that measure the health of our School by community support and parent participation!
How much $ should we give?
We ask that every donor give at a level comfortable for them! Your gift means the world to our School and the scholars, no matter the size. The Following Gift Recognition Levels are recognized in our Annual Report, unless you request that your donation remain anonymous.
