Why does ESA have an Annual Fund?
The cost of an independent school education, like that which ESA provides, is such that tuition and fees do not cover the total cost of educating each student. As with all independent schools, ESA seeks to bridge the gap between income and expenses through gifts to the Annual Fund.
Who gives to the Annual Fund?
Parents, past parents, trustees, faculty, alumni, grandparents, corporations, foundations and friends.
What is my Annual Fund gift used for?
From PreK-3 through 12th grade, each student directly benefits from your generosity. Gifts to the Annual Fund support salaries, technology, libraries, classroom materials, athletics and campus maintenance.
When should I give to the Annual Fund?
Now! While the fiscal year goes through June 30th, ESA uses Annual Fund dollars immediately to cover
educational costs in the current school year.
How much should we give to the Annual Fund?
This year ESA will make an investment of more than $2,800 over and above tuition for each student. We ask each family to consider thoughtfully and give as generously as you can. We value your participation at whatever level is comfortable for you, and recognize that the gifts will range from $10 to $10,000. The only gift too small is no gift at all.
Thank you for all of the ways you support ESA!
