The 2020-21 Episcopal Collegiate Annual Fund Goal is $575,000. This year, tuition covers 72 percent of our operating budget, but there is a $5,918 difference between the average price of tuition and the actual cost of an Episcopal Collegiate education. Along with the School’s endowment, the $575,000 raised will cover that gap for the 2020-21 school year. By reducing the amount of support needed from the endowment, donations to the Annual Fund ensure the sustainability of the School for years to come.
The Annual Fund supports every aspect of the student experience including our academic, arts, and athletic programs, in part, because it allows us to hire and retain stellar faculty and coaches through competitive salaries and professional development.

Dear Parents and Friends of Episcopal Collegiate School,
As we enjoy our 12th year of watching our children thrive at Episcopal Collegiate School, we find ourselves particularly thankful for our school's top-notch educational opportunities and supportive community. During this highly unusual year, we see even more clearly the benefits of our school: a well-managed, safe, and largely in-person school year; a robust online learning option; achievement of athletic results among the best in school history; our children's quality interactions with dedicated faculty and staff; and our and our peers' children routinely telling us they hope school remains in-person because they would miss their friends and teachers if not. These are just a few examples from our family's perspective; we know there are myriad additional small and large important moments from this school year experienced by all families at our school.
As Chairs of the 2020-2021 Annual Fund, we hope that you will join us in generously supporting our school which holds such a special place in all of our lives. As you may know, the average annual cost to educate a child at Episcopal Collegiate is nearly $6,000 greater than the amount we pay in tuition. Both the school’s endowment as well as the Annual Fund are the sources of funds used to close this gap. The Annual Fund, through donations from parents, family, friends, teachers, faculty, and alumni, covers basic operating costs and is critical to the day-to-day functioning of the school.
Please accept our gratitude in advance. We thank you for your commitment to our school and your generous contributions to the Annual Fund.
