WHAT IS THE FUNDRAISING GOAL FOR THE FORWARD SAINTS CAMPAIGN?
The FORWARD SAINTS campaign is comprised of projects totaling $34 million which is a combined $24 million in fundraising and $10 million in financing. Already the St. Andrew’s community has raised more than $11 million, the most in school history.
HOW LONG IS THE PLEDGE PERIOD?
The five-year pledge period allows donors the flexibility to make a larger gift when stretched over time.
WILL THERE BE NAMING OPPORTUNITIES IN THIS CAMPAIGN?
Yes. The plans include several areas ideal for honoring or memorializing family members, friends, an admired teacher, or other loved ones. Please see the insert and contact the Office of Institutional Advancement for the most updated opportunities available.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT WAYS TO GIVE? ARE GIFTS TAX-DEDUCTIBLE?
In addition to cash gifts, St. Andrew's welcomes gifts of appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual funds. Gifts from your IRA and matching gift programs are also welcomed. Gifts in any amount are deeply appreciated and tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
HOW WILL DONORS BE RECOGNIZED?
Donors will be recognized in St. Andrew's publications and on donor walls on both the South and North Campuses. Donors will be invited to special events held in conjunction with the construction and unveiling of the new facilities.
WILL THE ANNUAL FUND CONTINUE DURING THE CAPITAL CAMPAIGN PERIOD?
Absolutely. As always, and especially during the FORWARD SAINTS campaign, St. Andrew's depends on the Annual Fund to keep us going while we're growing. Additionally, St. Andrew's will continue to welcome gifts to the Touchstone Endowment, as well as planned gifts.
WHEN DO WE START FUTURE PROJECTS?
Construction schedules on future projects are tied directly to reaching fund-raising milestones.
This is a comprehensive campaign with one, ultimate goal of $34 million. All of the components are interdependent, and fund-raising will continue until the entire campaign is funded. The FORWARD SAINTS campaign has been carefully planned and crafted by trustees, parents, alumni, faculty, and staff so that each stage builds upon the previous stage's success. This holistic approach positions St. Andrew's to best serve its students now and for decades to come.
WILL TUITION INCREASE TO COVER THE COST OF THE NEW FACILITIES?
Tuition will continue to cover the cost of teaching our students. Tuition provides funding for curriculum instruction, innovative programming, faculty salaries, operation and upkeep of buildings and grounds, and other administrative costs. Any tuition increases related to these projects will remain in line with historical tuition increases.
IF I MAKE A MAJOR COMMITMENT TO THIS CAMPAIGN, WILL YOU BE COMING BACK FOR ANOTHER GIFT?
This is a long-term, comprehensive campaign that will position the school for decades to come. Families, alumni, and friends will have the opportunity to make a first gift or to renew a gift commitment if they so desire. St. Andrew's asks every member of our community to consider giving boldly now to help us make this vision a reality as soon as possible.
