Annual Giving Campaign
An investment in the Annual Giving Campaign is an investment in the St. Luke's experience for EVERY child, EVERY day. This annual fund is the lifeblood of an independent school's fundraising efforts. We depend on dedicated parents, alumni, parents of alumni, grandparents, and friends to donate generously of their time, talent, and treasure.

What is Annual Giving and Why Should I Give?
Annual giving ensures that the school has the resources necessary to deliver the St. Luke's experience--from great teachers, counselors, and coaches to technology, language resources, playground and science equipment. Indeed, annual giving impacts every area of school life. The school relies on annual giving to keep the cost of tuition as affordable as possible. Annual giving also provides a way for constituents of the school to demonstrate in concrete fashion that they are behind the school, which in turn helps to mobilize support from outside sources such as businesses, foundations, and philanthropists who have no personal connection to the school. We invite all of you in the St. Luke's community to join in making this year's campaign a resounding success!
Why is Participation Important?
Many foundations that fund schools look to the school's parent body, faculty, staff, grandparents, and alumni to see if they are supportive of the school. Your gift to the Annual Fund is an affirmation that you believe St. Luke's is an exceptional school. Typically, St. Luke's faculty and staff all give to the Annual Fund--as does the St. Luke's Board of Trustees and the St. Luke's Church Vestry. Please join the faculty, staff, board and vestry in supporting St. Luke's today!
