The Annual Fund for All Saints'

Like most independent schools, All Saints’ operating expenses exceed the revenue from tuition and fees. As a non-profit, independent educational institution, we depend on our parents, alumni, and friends for voluntary support. All parents are asked to contribute to the annual giving program that helps balance our operating budget. All contributions are tax-deductible. 


List of 7 frequently asked questions.

  • What is the Annual Fund?

    • The Annual Fund provides real dollars to pay for real expenses in the year that this money is raised. Gifts made to the Annual Fund directly benefit the students, faculty, staff and the All Saints’ community this year. The Annual Fund supports the School’s operating budget, and without it, we wouldn’t be able to sustain programming, technological advances and professional development at the level we expect and our children deserve.
    • Like all independent schools, the Annual Fund is one of only four funding streams that support the operating budget in addition to tuition, endowment and other miscellaneous revenue and helps keep our school debt free.
    • It is by far the single most important fundraising effort for our School each year.
    • Unlike tuition, Annual Fund gifts are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by the law.
  • When is All Saints' Annual Fund each year?

    The All Saints’ Annual Fund runs each year starting July 1 through June 30 (our fiscal year).
  • How can I make an Annual Fund gift?

    1. By credit card through our secure Online Giving Form

You can pledge to make a gift of any amount and pay it out in several installments. All of pledges can be made with any of the payment methods available.
  • Who gives to the Annual Fund?

    The entire All Saints’ community supports the Annual Fund.   Faculty and Staff are the first to give to the Annual Fund each year and have an excellent tradition of 100% participation. The Board of Trustees, the Alumni Board and the Vestry also wholeheartedly support the Annual Fund with 100% participation. Current All Saints’ parents, grandparents, parents of alumni, alumni and friends also contribute to the Annual Fund each year.
  • The Case for 100% Parent Participation

    Because every family and every child is an important part of our School community, the expectations are that every family makes a gift to the Annual Fund. There is strength in numbers – many gifts add up to a large sum each year, and every gift makes a difference no matter the amount. A high participation rate is also a symbol of maturity and credibility. Some of the most seasoned and prestigious private institutions nationwide and in our area achieve 100% parent participation for their Annual Funds. Furthermore, when funding is sought from outside sources for capital campaigns, 100% participation displays strength of financial position and community loyalty.   If a family has more than one child, their one gift to the Annual Fund will “count” toward participation in each of their children’s grades.
  • What should I give to the Annual Fund?

    Annual fund gifts typically range from $100 to over $30,000 and every family is encouraged, and expected, to give to the best of their ability. The education of your children is very important and we hope that you put All Saints’ at the top of your philanthropic giving portfolio. For reference, here are stats based on NAIS report of all Independent Day Schools for 2015-2016. 
    • Parents median gift $847: Participation 66.5%
    • Trustees median gift $3,921: Participation 100%
    • Faculty median gift $138: Participation 93.4%
    • Alumni median gift $243: Participation 7.7%
    • Forever Saints (Parents of Alumni) median gift $479: Participation 10.5%
    • Grandparents median gift $524: Participation 14.2%
  • Will people know what I gave to the Annual Fund?

    Every non-profit publishes an Annual Report to report on gifts that were received during the year toward various programs throughout the nonprofit. (Review our most recent Annual Report.) This is important for transparency and to show donors fiscal responsibility. If anyone would like to remain anonymous in their giving, we will honor their request and they will be accounted for but listed as anonymous in their level of giving.

    In our Annual Report, we publish gift giving ranges so the actual dollar amount that you gave is not listed. Those ranges are:
    • Platinum Founders Circle: $35,000+
