General Annual Fund – Used where it is most needed.
Faculty Professional Development and Resources – Your gift will be applied towards valuable workshops (Avg. cost- $50), Professional Seminars (Avg. cost- $250), Graduate courses (Avg. cost- $1000- $1500), and other important staff opportunities.
Technology – Items immediately needed: RAM cards to give current computers a memory upgrade for faster connectivity in the classroom ($30), classroom projectors ($120), iPads ($500), and new Chromebooks ($600).
Scholarships & Grants – Scholarships play a vital role in making a St. John's education a reality for many students. Your gift will help a family realize their dream of a St. John's education for their child. A donation of any amount is impactful. We deeply value our diverse population, it enriches our students' educational experience in many ways. Without a scholarship fund, many talented students would not be able to afford the cost of an independent school education.
Endowment Fund – A strong endowment is a sure sign that a school’s longevity is guaranteed. An endowment is an investment fund that schools establish in order to have the ability to regularly draw upon the invested capital. The goal is to grow the money over time by investing it and not touching the vast majority.
Legacy Gifts – Make a gift that costs nothing during your lifetime, but which helps secure the future for SJPDS. By making a bequest in your will, you and your loved ones enjoy the benefits of your assets today, while knowing you’ve made a difference for the students of tomorrow.
You don’t have to be wealthy to leave a legacy; there are a number of IRS incentives and estate planning options that can help you make a significant, lasting difference at St. John's. We’d be happy to discuss various plans with you, your family, or your financial planner. If you have decided to include us in your estate plans, please let us know. We would like to thank you for your generosity, and make sure the purpose of your gift is understood by the School.
