Parent Annual Giving
participation in St. Andrew's Annual Giving campaign is gratifying.
Their gifts not only signal support for this quality education but also
acknowledge understanding of independent school finances. St. Andrew's
(which, like other independent schools does not receive any financial
support from federal, state or local governments) puts annual gifts
immediately to work in the classroom. That's why the goal is always
100% participation by current parents.
Alumni Annual Giving
Alumni Annual Giving is
your chance to give back to your school. True, you no longer directly
benefit from what goes on in the St. Andrew's classroom, but the
strength of the education you received came from other supporters'
gifts. Now is your chance to touch the current generation.
Grandparents and Other Friends of St. Andrew's
Students' visions for themselves grow out of the example of all the
lives that touch their own — neighbors and family friends, mentors,
grandparents and other relatives are all a part of a young person's
education. We are all united in our commitment to educate the next
generation; we are grateful for your contributions to the part of the
effort that occurs at St. Andrew's.
In 2007-2008, St. Andrew's faculty number 67 full or parttime teachers,
95% of whom contributed to annual giving this year before school
started. Over a third of our faculty have twenty or more years of
teaching experience; over one tenth have taught for 20 years at this
school. Half of the faculty have contributed to the strength of this
school's education for more than five years. Faculty and staff gifts to
Annual Giving say to the rest of this community, "We believe in the
importance of our work here and invest ourselves in it."
A planned gift to St. Andrew's can benefit both you and St. Andrew's.
For you, planned gifts generate income for life or for a specified
period of years; convert low yielding assets into a higher income
stream; obtain significant income tax deductions and reduce or
eliminate capital gains and estate taxes. For St. Andrew's, your
planned gifts help ensure that the kind of education we are known for
will continue in the future.
