All Saints' Fund

The All Saints' Fund is the top fundraising priority at All Saints’ as it enables the School to meet its highest current needs and helps balance the annual operating budget. At independent schools, tuition is intentionally set lower than the actual cost in order to make the enriched education available to more students. Gifts to the All Saints' Fund help bridge the gap between tuition income and the total cost of an All Saints' education. We have a goal of 100% participation from parents, faculty, staff and trustees. Thank you for supporting our school!

Frequently Asked Questions

List of 4 frequently asked questions.

  • Why do we need The All Saints' Fund?

    Without The All Saints' Fund, tuition would be over $3000 more per student.
    For parents, making a tax-deductible contribution to All Saints’ is better than having non-deductible tuition raised even higher. In addition, we receive gifts from grandparents, former parents, alumni, friends, businesses and foundations that help to strengthen the School and enrich our programs.
  • How much should I donate to the All Saints' Fund?

    Every gift makes a difference. Gifts to the All Saints' Fund range in size from $25 to over $25,000. Large gifts help ensure the school’s economic strength and opportunities for growth, but a gift in any amount is important and appreciated as it demonstrates the donor’s commitment to All Saints’. Participation is critical—our accrediting agencies (CAIS, NAIS, NAES) and foundations that provide grant funding want to know that our community is supportive. We track participation percentages for our Board of Trustees, Faculty & Staff, and Parents.
  • Can I pledge today and fulfill it later, or make a gift in installments?

    Yes, to both questions. We ask only that you fulfill your pledge by March 31. Funds received after July 31 are credited toward the All Saints'l Fund of the following school year.
  • May I restrict my gift for a specific purpose?

    While most gifts to this fund are unrestricted, our donors may choose to donate to specific areas such as teacher salaries, professional growth for faculty, or financial aid.
