The Annual Fund for St. George's
Oh, what a year! The 2019-2020 school year was “wild” to say the least. We cannot express how happy we are to be together on campus again with our students for the 2020-2021 school year. Adversity tends to make us more resilient and we believe that will be true when we reflect upon our current experience. St. George’s has always stepped up when needed. If you think about it, it’s really part of our existence. A group of people were called to serve the children of New Orleans, to fill a need, and 51 years later, we’re still here -- stepping up and lending the Shield of St. George wherever and however we can. Except, we can’t do it alone.
We need partners, supporters and friends to help us push forward -- to help us boldly reimagine education.
Our model is incredibly effective, but tuition revenue alone does not cover its costs. That’s where the annual fund comes in and helps complete our operating budget. The difference between tuition revenue and St. George’s operating expenses is known as “the gap.” It is met through generous donations, including your gift to the Annual Fund.
With your gift of any size, we can continue to meet the needs and demands of our current school year. When you donate $1,500 or more, we can begin to reimagine and continue to grow our student activities and programs.

Annual Fund for St. George's Goal: $225,000
Our primary goal, though, is 100% participation
from our parents, Board of Trustees, and faculty/staff!
- I already pay tuition. Why should I donate to the Annual Fund?
- Do ALL independent schools have an annual fund ask?
- What does the operating budget cover?
- Why is 100% participation so important?
- How much am I expected to give?
- Is my donation tax-deductible?
- Can I pledge now and pay later?
- When are all payments due?
