Make a Gift Today. Transform Tomorrow.
On average, tuition and fees cover 86 percent of the costs associated with educating our students. Gifts to the Annual Fund make up the crucial deficit and have a direct impact on the quality of education that students receive today, tomorrow and into the future. Your unrestricted gift is applied where the need is greatest. Gifts may be directed to special programs or projects, as well.
Participation in the Annual Fund is a significant satisfaction rating that assists the school when it seeks funds from foundations and other organizations. Your gift tells Prep—and others—that you support all students, now and for life. Ninety-eight percent of families give to the Annual Fund, in addition to volunteering their time and talent all over campus. Alumni support comes in many forms, from the school's mentorship program, Prep Exchange, to reunions and annual giving, where their 19 percent participation is well above national benchmarks. In addition to teaching their core subjects, our faculty support students as coaches, club advisors and mentors. They also participate at a rate of 100 percent in annual giving.
