Giving

Annual Fund

At the core of the ESA's support is the Annual Fund. Donors support the school by providing unrestricted funds to be used at the Headmaster's discretion for areas of greatest need, including direct funding for new projects and programs, or areas where a special emphasis may be needed. Whether to support student life, extracurriculars or academic programming, these funds are critical to the growth and continued success of the school. By giving annually to ESA, you are participating in a powerful vehicle to transform the ESA Experience.

Annual Fund Q&A

List of 6 items.

  • Why does ESA have an Annual Fund?

    At ESA, tuition and fees do not cover the total cost of educating each student. As with all independent schools, ESA seeks to make up the difference 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 PK3 through 12th grade, each student directly benefits from your generosity. Gifts to the Annual Fund support salaries, technology, libraries, classroom materials, athletics, the arts, facilities maintenance and so much more.
  • 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 I give to the Annual Fund?

    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. 
  • What is the Annual Fund goal?

    Each year when the Board of Trustees sets the annual budget for the coming school year, an Annual Fund goal is set as well. This year, the Annual Fund goal is $325,000. A secondary goal is 75% parent participation. A high percentage of parent participation sends a message to organizations and individuals who offer sources of funding. It says ESA parents believe in what we do!
Thank you for all of the ways you support ESA!
