Annual Fund

Every gift matters. Every gift makes a difference. The St. Clement's Annual Fund helps support initiatives, programs, and campus improvements not covered by tuition and fees.

Why support the St. Clement's Annual Fund?

Giving to the Annual Fund is not only tax-deductible but helps build a sense of community that is an integral part of independent schools. A gift to the Annual Fund perpetuates the spirit of leadership, service, and philanthropy that we strive to instill in our students.

Financial gifts from St. Clement's School supporters provide the only non-tuition source of income for the school. As an independent school we do not receive financial support from federal, state, or local governments. Tuition does not cover all of the operating costs associated with the daily operations of the school, thus the need for us to depend on support from a strong St. Clement's Annual Fund. About 85% of our yearly operating budget is covered by tuition. Gifts to the School are essential to making up the balance. Your tax-deductible gifts help ensure that every child has access to the very best resources necessary for successful learning experiences.
