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. 

Will you consider helping us today? Make your pledge or donation here.

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!

Frequently Asked Questions about the Annual Fund

I already pay tuition. Why should I donate to the Annual Fund?
The Annual Fund for St. George's is our top fundraising priority. Tuition alone does not allow us to hire our talented faculty and offer all of the amazing programming we're recognized and celebrated for having; the annual fund covers "the gap" (the difference between operating costs and tuition).

Do ALL independent schools have an annual fund ask?
Yes! Locally (and outside of New Orleans), independent schools fundraise annually to secure the difference between tuition and the year's full operating costs.

What does the operating budget cover?
Everything that keeps our school running! St. George's operating budget covers salaries and benefits for our faculty, staff and administrators; tuition assistance for faculty and qualified families; supplies; facilities maintenance and improvements; technology; utilities; advertising; costs of special events; insurance; postage and printing; professional fees; security; website costs and more.

Why is 100% participation so important?
100% participation is crucial because it shows our community's dedication to and confidence in St. George's. This percentage is referred to by foundations and other organizations interested in supporting our school.

How much am I expected to give?
We hope that St. George's will be our current families' top philanthropic priority. We recognize that each family is different and will pledge accordingly. Consider donating at the gap ($1,500.00) or above to cover your child's total educational cost. Our ideal situation is 100% participation for our families, though, so we ask that you give the amount that makes the most sense for your family.

Is my donation tax-deductible?
Yes, your donation is tax-deductible as allowed by law.

Can I pledge now and pay later?
Yes! Click HERE and navigate from "make a single gift" to "pledge to give" to make your pledge today.

When are all payments due?
All payments (including on pledged gifts) should be submitted by May 31, 2021.
