St. Benedict's Episcopal School is excited to kick off our 2022-2023 Acorn Fund Campaign! For those of you who are new to our community this year, The Acorn Fund is St. Benedict's Annual Fundraiser that runs from August through January, and is the school's most important giving priority.
At St. Benedict's, and all independent schools, tuition does not cover every operating expense. As a result, the school depends on the generosity of our community to help close the gap between tuition and the actual cost of educating each student. Parent, board, faculty and staff participation directly influences the opportunities to receive grants and major gifts from donors. When foundations and donors see that our community gives to The Acorn Fund, they are more apt to support St. B's. So, whether you can give a little or a lot, your participation is vital.
Gifts to the Acorn Fund directly support St. Benedict's unique educational model to provide a diverse and faith-based education with high standards of excellence. Your
generosity to the Annual Acorn Fund, enables us to keep our class sizes small, to offer a robust Spanish curriculum, and to hire exceptional teachers. You are supporting the faith-based education that teaches your child that he or she is loved by God.
Your tax-deductible gift impacts every aspect of a St. B's education – our academic, arts, and Spanish programs; our technology offerings; our extracurricular opportunities; our campus and facilities; and professional development for our faculty. This year, 10% of funds raised will support our STEAM curriculum across all grade levels.
Your gift makes a difference for Every Child Every Day.
