The Fund for All Saints...A Game Changer

The Fund for All Saints Campaign will begin in September, and our goal is to have 100% in 100 days! The Fund provides critical resources that enrich the quality of education at our school. The Fund focuses on providing for technology needs and faculty professional development opportunities. Whether a student is receiving a new iPad or Chromebook or benefits from a new method of teaching, The Fund for All Saints enables us to secure the tools necessary for a first-rate education for each student.  In 2019, The Fund is providing half the salary for a full-time security officer on campus - assuring the safety of each student at All Saints.
 
At the heart of The Fund’s success are parent volunteers who help solicit support from our parent community.   Through their efforts, almost 100% of current parents donated to The Fund in 2018-19.  Every gift regardless of size is significant and counted.  Pledges are made in the fall and may be paid over the course of the school year, and they are also tax deductible. 

List of 11 frequently asked questions.

  • Q. What is the Fund for All Saints?

    This fund is the school’s most important annual fundraising effort as it supports every student and faculty member on campus.  The Fund helps All Saints equip students and retain teachers for the future education of our community. It gives us the flexibility to remain current and respond to our school’s ever-changing needs.  The Fund for All Saints makes a world of difference in the life of every student.
  • Q.
    How does my gift to The Fund for All Saints benefit me?
     

    The tuition our families pay covers only 86% of the yearly cost of educating each student, including yours.  This leaves a gap averaging$1,605 per student.  The Fund for All Saints is the major source of revenue closing that gap. We encourage every family whose family benefits from All Saints’ many offerings to make our school a top philanthropic priority.
  • Q. Why doesn’t All Saints charge the full cost of educating each student instead of raising funds each year?

    There are three main reasons:
    1. Raising tuition to cover the true cost of educating each student would make All Saints financially inaccessible for some families.
    2. All Saints is a non-profit organization and therefore donations to The Fund are fully tax-deductible, but tuition payments are not.
    3. The Fund allows members of the broader community who believe in the mission of our school to support every student.  Grandparents, Board members, Alumni, and businesses regularly donate to The Fund for All Saints.
  • Q. Why doesn't All Saints charge more tuition to cover costs?

    The Board is committed to keeping tuition at the lowest possible level while providing the highest quality education for children. Affordable tuition allows All Saints to attract a diverse population of talented students.
  • Q. Is my gift to the All Saints Annual Fund tax deductible?

    Yes, it is! While tuition is not tax deductible, your gifts to the school certainly are.
  • Q. How much should I give?

    What you give is up to you and your family, but we hope you will keep All Saints as a philanthropic priority. We receive gifts from $10 to $10,000, and each gift is valued and used wisely.  Each donation is a vote of confidence in the education provided by All Saints. The priority is a high level of participation by our school community.  The important thing is to give something.  By giving, YOU make a world of difference.
  • Q. Do all families of All Saints students give?

    Our goal is to have 100% participation from parents, faculty and staff, and the Board of Trustees. Last year 100% of faculty, staff and board members gave.
  • Q. Why is 100% participation so important?

    100% participation signals to the larger community, including foundations and other donors, that our families believe in the education provided at All Saints. Families who give feel ownership in the school.
  • Q. Can we designate where we would like our gift to be used?

    Certainly, although unrestricted donations give the school the most flexibility in meeting needs.
  • Q. Does my pledge need to be paid immediately?

    Families are encouraged to make their pledges as soon as possible, but we ask that payments be made by the end of May, 2018.
  • Q. How will The Fund for All Saints be used this year?

    • Full-time security officer on campus
    • New Chromebooks for all Middle School students
    • Enriching professional development workshops and speakers
    • Drama, music and art supplies
    • New reading curriculum for grades 2-5
      ...and many other resources that add to the educational experiences of every student at All Saints!
