The Fund for All Saints...A Game Changer

The Fund for All Saints Campaign will begin in October 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.  
 
At the heart of The Fund’s success are parent volunteers who help solicit support from our parent community.   Through their efforts, over 90% of current parents donated to The Fund in 2019-20.  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?

    The Fund is the bridge between the income received from tuition and the actual cost of educating All Saints students.  This fund is the school’s most important annual fundraising effort as it supports every student and faculty member on campus. With the help of The Fund for All Saints, we are able to provide state-of-the-art learning tools for our students and advanced training for teachers. The Fund for All Saints makes a world of difference in the life of every student.
  • Q. How will The Fund for All Saints be used this year?

    *New Chromebooks for 4th and 5th graders
    *Professional development for teachers designed to prepare them to deliver high-quality remote learning
    *New curriculum resources across grade levels
    PK4-1: Heggerty Phonemic Awareness
    3-4: Science Fusion Curriculum
    6-8: Reading Curriculum & Spanish Curriculum 
    K-5: Greg Tang Online Math Resources and Professional Development

    *COVID-19 health and safety equipment
    *Full-time nurse on campus
    *Drama, music and art supplies
    ...and many other resources that add to the educational experiences of every student at All Saints!
  • 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 $1606 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. How much should I give?

    Consider the blessings you have received through being a part of the All Saints family. 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 important thing is to give something.  By giving, YOU make a world of difference.
  • 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. 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 2021.
In 2019-20, we surpassed our goal of $200,000 with close to 100% participation by our Parents, Board, and Faculty and Staff! We are so grateful for the support of our ASES community.  Please click the link below to donate now! Any gift is necessary and appreciated.
