Saints Fund


What is the Saints Fund?

The Saints Fund—formerly known as the Annual Fund—strengthens every aspect of School life and the student experience, by providing for needs of the School that cannot be covered by our endowment draw or tuition. Gifts to the Saints Fund help to pay for everything from the purchase of sheet music for the orchestra, to the repair of a broken boiler in Founders Hall; from transportation of an athletic team to a distant tournament, to outfitting our chemistry labs with new equipment.

Why give to the Saints Fund?

By making a gift, at any level, to the Saints Fund, you are supporting all of the programs that make St. Andrew's an exemplary boarding school experience. But you are also contributing to the continued existence and success of St. Andrew's and its unique educational mission in our 21st century world. You are ensuring that our endowment will continue to open doors of opportunity to students who need financial aid to support their St. Andrew's career, and you are preserving that endowment for future generations of St. Andreans.

Every day, every week and every month, the students, faculty and staff of St. Andrew's work together to create a community unlike any other. Fantastic things happen here because each interaction is framed by authentic work, integrity, enthusiasm and trust. Student jobs, community meals, vibrant classes, chapel services, advisee meals… individuals coming together each day to build a thriving community.
The Annual Fund makes these unique and inspiring moments possible. Each year, St. Andrew’s relies on the Annual Fund to underwrite approximately 10 percent of the School’s budget.
