The St. John's Fund (previously called the St. John's Annual Fund) is a fundraising program that provides an opportunity for parents, alumni, grandparents, parents of alumni, faculty, and staff to secure the continued quality of a St. John's School education. Support of the St. John's Fund is critical to the School as it underwrites 9% (approximately $4 million) of the budget. The St. John's Fund benefits every facet of the School's operation. Faculty salaries and professional development, financial aid and technology, and the arts, athletic, and music programs all rely on the St. John's Fund. A gift to the St. John's Fund is the first and most important gift we ask of every alumnus, parent, grandparent, faculty, and friend.
While gifts to the St. John's Fund remain unrestricted in use, donors now have the opportunity indicate an area of impact they would like to hear more about as we steward these gifts. To gain a broad picture of the importance of the Fund, please watch the video and read the St. John's Fund Brochure.

As an independent school, St. John's operates without financial support from local, state, and federal governments. The school relies on tuition income, endowment income, and a strong Fund to maintain operations. Each year, the St. John's Fund raises money critical to balancing the School's budget. A robust Fund enables the School to sustain its unparalleled academic offering.
The St. John's Fund provides you an opportunity to contribute to the growth of our students as citizens, scholars, and leaders. Your gift to the St. John's Fund makes a real difference to St. John's School. We appreciate your ongoing support.
Why is participation so important? Your participation is fundamental to assuring a solid financial future for St. John's School. A high percentage of giving by those closest to the School—the parents, alumni, grandparents, parents of alumni, faculty, and staff—demonstrates the importance of philanthropy at St. John's School. Strong participation for the Fund often positively influences contributions from foundations and corporations.
