What Is An Annual Fund? Independent institutions like St. Andrew’s Episcopal School do not depend on financial support from the federal, state or local governments. We generate our own funding through tuition, private grants and fundraising efforts such as the Annual Fund. All gifts made to the St. Andrew’s Annual Fund are tax-deductible within the year the contribution is made. Your gift gives St. Andrew’s the opportunity to continue implementing a unique education for every child in our care. These gifts contribute to an improved classroom and institutional environment, technology upgrades, the hiring of our highly-qualified educators and much more. Giving Levels Anyone can make a gift to St. Andrew’s. Our school accepts gifts of any size, because everything helps when it comes to educating our youth. Thank you for considering St. Andrew's and our students.
