With the start of the school year, the 2020-21 Annual Fund also begins.
Representing 7% of the school's operating budget and filling the gap between tuition and our operating costs, a robust Annual Fund is a critical component to the strength of St. Luke's. Last year our community came together and contributed over $1.65 million in Annual Fund gifts - a testament to our strength and a powerful indication of our community’s commitment to a school where excellence is evident in all areas – academics, arts, and athletics.
Tosustain and expand programs and activities not covered by tuition, our 2020-21 Annual Fund goal is $1.675 million and 100% parent participation. As all Annual Fund gifts must be utilized in the academic year they are received, the earlier parents commit to a gift, the earlier these gifts are put to immediate use. It takes all of us to keep our community strong.
In the coming days, you will receive an Annual Fund appeal letter in the mail. Your support will make a difference and our participation as a community ensures St. Luke’s School's ability to go “Above and Beyond” for its students and our beloved faculty.
A team of dedicated volunteers is at the heart of a robust Annual Fund.Thank you to the nearly 40 Annual Fund parent ambassadors, led by Co-Chairs Michelle Adams and Kristen Staikos, who have volunteered to help secure these essential funds. We are fortunate to have such a talented and committed team.
