The Annual Fund is the school's most important source of revenue after tuition. Annual Fund gifts support the current year's operating budget - tuition alone does not cover the actual cost of educating an Epiphany School student. Annual Fund gifts are unrestricted, meaning that contributions may be used where they are most needed.
The Annual Fund supports daily operations like, faculty and staff salaries and benefits, curricular supplies, academic programs, professional development, facilities maintenance, new technology, and financial aid for tuition and Extended Day programs.
Every year by December 31, the Annual Fund's volunteer leadership team, the Giving Committee, works to raise these important funds for our current operating budget – through generous donations by parents, grandparents, family friends, community members, matching donations, faculty, staff, parents of alumni, and alumni.
All Annual Fund donors are appreciated and recognized in the Epiphany School Annual Report. Leadership Council donors are also recognized at a reception held each spring.
