Why an Annual Fund?

An annual fund at most independent schools serves as the philanthropic foundation of giving. Each year, schools rely on unrestricted annual fund contributions to provide resources for students and faculty that support educational initiatives not covered by tuition alone.

What does the Annual Fund Support?

Your gift to The McGillis School Annual Fund supports people and programs that characterize the McGillis educational experience, such as strong academic programs, the arts, athletics and technology, positively impacting every aspect of academic and student life. You and your support are the difference between a school that meets the standards our students deserve and one that exceeds them, ensuring an unparalleled educational experience at McGillis. The McGillis School Annual Fund is a vital source of institutional momentum for the school. It supports every student, every teacher, every program, every day. We are grateful for your support.

Who participates in the Annual Fund?

Everyone in the McGillis community! Parents, grandparents, alumni, alumni parents faculty and staff, and friends of the School come together each year to contribute.

How much should I give?

The answer to that question is easy: as much as you feel you can give. Whether your gift is $10, $100 or even $10,000, it’s an important statement of gratitude and investment that shows your passionate belief and pride in the McGillis experience. Every gift matters, no matter the size.
