St. Albans' Margin of Excellence: Annual Giving
Supporting every teacher and every student, every day 

Since 1953, Annual Giving has been a vital source of institutional momentum for St. Albans, and the primary way for all alumni, parents, and friends to help sustain the special features that set the School apart. The success of Annual Giving and the spirit of shared experience and mutual encouragement that brings together all generations of Bulldogs are essential to St. Albans' enduring excellence.

Why is Annual Giving job #1 at St. Albans every year?

  • Annual Giving, because it's unrestricted, provides St. Albans with powerful financial flexibility to meet core commitments and support new initiatives, creating a "margin for excellence" that ensures students will continue to receive an unparalleled educational experience.
  • Tuition accounts for only 75% of the total cost of a St. Albans education; income from Annual Giving and the endowment covers the difference, which is $10,000 per student in 2014-2015.
  • Gifts to Annual Giving provide scholarships and financial aid, purchase laboratory equipment and light bulbs, update classroom technology, support faculty initiatives and salaries, and much, much more.
