Your Gift Matters

Three ways you can support Saint George’s School

Give Annually

You can directly impact Saint George’s students by participating in the school’s yearly fundraising campaign, the "Power the Dragon" Annual Fund. It provides the essential dollars needed for school operations not covered by tuition.

Annual Fund gifts make all kinds of activities and programs possible that are vital to the life of the school. Your gift to the Saint George’s Annual Fund helps make these opportunities -- robotics, drama and no-cut athletics just to name a few -- available to all students.  That would not be possible without the support of our parents, alumni, and friends.

High participation levels help us when seeking grants from foundations, so we encourage everyone to participate at a level comfortable for them. It is often not the dollar amount that is counted when applying for these grants, but the percentage of participation. Every gift counts!

Endow Saint George’s School

A sign of Saint George’s maturity is the size of its Permanent Endowment. Earnings from the Permanent Endowment, as well as several Memorial Endowments, support faculty enrichment, tuition assistance and minimize the inevitable tuition increases needed to cover costs. Endowment gifts are larger and generally given over a period of years. Often called capital gifts, they are essential to maintain the quality of education at Saint George’s. That’s because Endowment gifts help attract and retain the highest quality faculty, support our independent curriculum, and provide tuition assistance to financially viable families whose children could benefit most from a Saint George’s education and provide a diverse community in which all of our children can grow and develop. 

Make a Future Gift

Future gifts, also known as Planned Gifts, take the longer view. These range from gifts that provide a lifetime stream of income, simple bequests, or creative arrangements with unused retirement-plan benefits. Some people choose to make either an outright gift or a deferred gift of assets such as stocks, bonds, and property. Making a future, planned gift may allow you to give more than you ever thought possible while receiving tax advantages and special recognition. Our significant endowment is built on planned gifts from a few of our enduring patrons—their gifts impact the education of our students daily.
