On Tuesday, our dedicated team of parent volunteers gathered for one last night of group calling on behalf of St. Margaret’s and the Annual Fund. Thanks to those of you who answered the call and made a commitment that evening, more than $1,050,000 has been raised to date in support of every student at St. Margaret’s. Your support makes a critical difference to every one of them. Thank you!

Top Ten Reasons to Support St. Margaret’s through the Annual Fund

1. You believe in investing in motivated students and know that one St. Margaret’s student can positively impact the lives of thousands.

2. You know that great teachers make a great school and believe in the need to attract and retain the best teachers to inspire our students.

3. Key areas depend on support from annual fund gifts – innovative academic programs, enriching arts and athletics, faculty teaching and professional growth, financial aid, technology, class size, campus enhancements.

4. Your annual gift has an immediate impact today. Consider this: it would take an additional $28,000,000 in the St. Margaret’s endowment to support what annual gifts provide each year.

5. You want to reaffirm your commitment to our mission and secure our ability to educate the hearts and minds of young people for lives of learning, leadership and service.

6. Your generous support helps our commitment to make a St. Margaret’s education accessible to qualified students regardless of financial resources. Twenty percent of St. Margaret’s families benefited from need-based financial assistance this year.

7. Because someone gave for you. Tuition doesn’t cover the full cost of a St. Margaret’s education. When you were a student, other alumni, parents and friends helped make your St. Margaret’s experience possible.

8. You want to honor a teacher, student or alum that made a difference in your life or is currently making a difference in the life of your child.

9. You want your gift to leverage other gifts to St. Margaret’s to help enhance our programs. Parent and alumni participation in the annual fund have an effect on foundation giving to independent schools.

10. Giving feels good, and it’s even tax deductible!
