Support of the Episcopal Collegiate Annual Fund ensures that every Wildcat has a distinctive experience during their time here. This yearly need funds the ongoing investments in facilities, faculty, and programs that set the Episcopal experience apart.
Each year, the Annual Fund supports the School's operating budget, as the actual cost of educating one student is around $5,925 more than the average cost of tuition. That gap is funded by the School's generous endowment and the Annual Fund.
A gift to the Annual Fund impacts every aspect of student life from the hallways to the locker bays and from the classrooms to the court. By supporting the Annual Fund, you make a significant difference in the lives of all 784 of our students.

Dear Parents and Friends of Episcopal Collegiate School,
It doesn’t seem like it was more than a decade ago we toured a yet to be completed lower school as prospective parents. I don’t think we even had to ponder the decision or discuss it because we both just knew. We knew Episcopal Collegiate School was something special and unique. We knew the faculty and staff would know our children and help them learn and grow. We just knew it was where we wanted them to be. Fast forward and we are now the parents of an Episcopal Collegiate School graduate of the Class of 2020 and a current member of the Class of 2023. We have seen what an impact the school makes on its students and how well our school prepares students academically, socially, and spiritually. I am sure you have all have similar stories and experiences.
It is our honor to be the Chairs of the 2021-22 Annual Fund and we hope you will join us in generously supporting our school, a school that makes such a positive, impactful difference in the lives of our students. Many of you may know our tuition is significantly less than the actual annual cost to educate each student. The gap between what we pay in tuition and the actual cost to educate each student is nearly $6,000 a year. The school’s endowment and Annual Fund bridge that gap so every donation is important and supports all students.
We want to thank the faculty and staff for once again supporting our school with 100 percent participation in Annual Fund giving and hope you will join them in supporting the Annual Fund. Both of us would like to thank you for supporting the Annual Fund, helping us reach our goal of maximum participation.
