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 $6,195 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 809 of our students.

Dear Parents, Alumni, Grandparents, and Friends of Episcopal,
We are in our 14th year of educating our children at Episcopal Collegiate School. We reflect on the beginning, from talking with Mary Jane about a new expansion of Episcopal to watching the groundbreaking of the Lower School. Taking our first physical tour gave us a hope that our children would thrive in a small, faith based school in the heart of Little Rock. We were thrilled to find a home away from home for our children. Having a school that provided PreK3-12th grade all on one campus was a huge draw for us. We’ve watched the school grow into not just a place to drop our children off to learn everyday but a community of people that would support the challenges that parents face while raising a family. The excellence in education from our amazing teachers, learning sportsmanship through the number of athletic opportunities, and the love for the arts have all been what has made this school a worthwhile investment. With two graduates from Episcopal and a current 5th grader, we believe in the education and character building that this school provides.
As Chairs of the 2022-2023 Episcopal Collegiate Annual Fund we hope that you will join us in participating with your financial support. This is our 14th year to give. As farmers in rural Arkansas, we are very aware of the rising cost of living, transportation, and everyday operations in our business. This is no different for Episcopal Collegiate School. When giving, we want to make sure that we, along with who we are giving to, are good stewards of funds raised. The Annual Fund along with our school endowment helps to bridge a funding gap of $6,195. This gap is the difference in what our families pay in tuition and what it actually costs to educate a student at Episcopal. The Annual Fund, through donations from our community, covers unforeseen costs that are necessary for operating daily throughout the year.
We want to say a huge thank you to our teachers, staff, and current board members for 100% participation in giving to the Annual Fund. With you, we have a school that is significant, strong, and thriving. Our prayer is that each family participates this year with their support. Seriously, no gift is too big or too small!
