St. Richard's is a not-for-profit educational institution that receives our operating support from tuition and charitable giving. Our school embraces the spirit of philanthropy by partnering with our larger community to achieve shared goals. We have integrated the principles and practice of philanthropy into our curriculum through the Learning to Give program through the Center on Philanthropy because we believe it is essential to teach our children to be change agents in the world. For this very reason, we invite you to take an active role in supporting our school community. This action will take many forms, from volunteering your time within the classrooms, sharing your expertise with our students and faculty, and financially supporting our school to whatever degree you are able.
While charitable giving is voluntary, we encourage and expect all current families to make a contribution to the annual fund. We hope that St. Richard's Episcopal School annual giving campaign will be the top philanthropic priority within our families, alumni and friends as we partner together to sustain the very spirit that makes St. Richard's special.
How to Give
St Richard's annual giving campaign provides some of the most useful support for our school. Giving to the annual campaign builds the unrestricted dollars that provide the most flexibility for the school's leadership and administration to address the most pressing needs of the school. Annual gifts are the most productive gifts possible because they come with no strings attached. Gifts made to the annual giving campaign are used in the following manner:
- Student scholarship
- Faculty enrichment and support
- Library enhancement
- Music and art curriculum expansion
- Classroom materials
