Who Supports the Annual Fund?

Current Families

We ask every current family to support the Annual Fund, above and beyond their tuition payments. We strive for 100% participation, regardless of the gift amount.


Our faculty and staff are not only dedicated educators but generous supporters. Last year, 100% of our faculty, staff, and board voluntarily contributed to the Annual Fund at significant levels. They set an example and inspire us on many levels.

Alumni and their Families

Alumni are a small but essential segment of the Annual Fund. Graduates, former students, and their families give back to the school because of the positive, long-term impact St. Stephen’s has had on their lives. The school instills an intellectual curiosity and personal drive that remains with them long after they leave campus.


Grandparents are very special at St. Stephen’s. They support the school with their presence at school events, as school volunteers, and their financial gifts to the Annual Fund.
