The Annual Fund

Like most independent schools, All Saints’ depends on the generosity of current families, grandparents, board of directors, alumni, faculty, and friends to carry out the mission of the school. We value your gift of time, talent and resources as tuition alone does not cover the full cost of an All Saints’ education. When you make a contribution of any size, you are joining a community of family and friends who help ensure that we can provide each child with an extraordinary educational experience and maintain the long-term financial health of the school.

The Annual Fund is one of our most important sources of revenue. Tuition covers only 75% of the total cost of a student’s education. Gifts to the Annual Fund bridge the gap between tuition income and the full cost of an All Saints’ education. Unlike tuition, Annual Fund donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law.

Every year, Annual Fund gifts help the school invest in our incredible faculty, maintain a low student-teacher ratio even with overall enrollment growth, enhance our classroom resources, create new programs and professional development opportunities, and continue All Saints’ commitment to providing a high quality, student-centered education to all families.

This year, Annual Fund gifts will also fund three specific projects including STEM Lab Redesign and Nielsen Building Updates; Library Redesign; Preschool Playground Updates.

You can make your tax-deductible gift by check, credit card, stock or securities.

STEM Lab Redesign and Nielsen Building Updates

Help us update the STEM lab for project-based and collaborative learning experiences and update the Nielson building with paint and upgraded bathrooms. Our current STEM lab is designed as a traditional, single-function classroom for lecture and experiment.

Classroom environment is a big factor that affects the learning process. This redesign will allow for project-based and collaborative learning!

The Nielsen building needs a fresh coat of paint, new cork strips to display student work, and bathroom upgrades.

Library Redesign

Help us transform our library into an innovative space that inspires and encourages opportunities to develop life-long READERS! This library redesign will transform our current library into an innovative space or learning and collaboration! The redesign includes an adaptable layout, flexible seating, areas suited for project work, comfortable spaces for independent reading and a special collaborative work area.

During the 21-22 school year, the Parent Guild generously purchased the campfire seating to get this project started and Securitas Technologies generously donated the View Sonic board.

Preschool Playground Updates

Outdoor play is essential to the well-being of our students. Your gift will help make safe additions and updates to our preschool (2K-4K) playground! Increasing the level of physical activity gives students the opportunity to unleash their imaginations, interact with others, and move their bodies! With your generous gift, we will be able to purchase additional equipment that is age appropriate for 2K-4K students!

What Are This Year’s Goals?

The 2022 Annual Fund goals are $135,000 and 100% participation. Both goals are equally important to All Saints’. Gifts of all sizes add up to a truly meaningful sum for the school, and every gift puts us one step closer to our goals. 

Why Is Participation Important?
  • It’s one measure of the strength of the All Saints’ community and sends an important message to leadership donors that there is broad-based support for the school. 
  • All Saints’ is connected with independent school associations including NAIS (National Association of Independent Schools), SAIS (Southern Association of Independent Schools), PAIS (Palmetto Association of Independent Schools), and is evaluated by SCISA (South Carolina Independent School Association). High levels of giving and participation are seen as a sign of a healthy educational organization and bode well for any accreditation evaluation. 
  • Collective giving adds up! We are grateful of your contribution of any size.  
How Much Should I Give?
  • Every gift, of every size, is important to All Saints’ and provides vital support for students and faculty. Last year, gifts ranged from $50-$5,000 and the most frequent gift was $1,000. 
  • Gifts of $1,000 per student close the gap between tuition and the full cost of an All Saints’ education.
