Seattle Academy’s Annual Fund is our primary campaign for program support. The Annual Fund fuels curricular innovations, resources, and opportunities across the four pillars of a SAAS education – Academics, the Arts, Athletics, and Outdoor and Travel programs. These gifts also support financial aid, technology, faculty professional development, and student-initiated clubs and activities. Tuition covers a college preparatory education rooted in innovation and excellence. The Annual Fund provides other essential funds to elevate the SAAS education to something extraordinary. These gifts have an impact on students’ experiences every day – experiences that lead to memorable moments of discovery, transformation, and accomplishment.

We ask everyone to give to the Annual Fund at a level personally appropriate and meaningful. Gifts of all sizes have impact and are appreciated. Leadership gifts of $3,000 or more are the foundation of our Annual Fund. If it is within your ability, please consider a leadership gift.

Annual Gifts Support:
• Academic excellence and curricular innovation in the classroom and beyond.
• Visual and performing arts programs that motivate talents born, made, and discovered.
• A no-cut athletics policy that engages 85% of students in team sports at every level.
• Trips and retreats that teach resilience, inspire confidence, and expand horizons.
• Financial aid for over 20% of our student body to ensure a broad and inclusive community.

Annual gifts provide flexibility to serve the immediate needs of our students and faculty. Collectively, donors contribute nearly one million dollars annually to support the people and programs at SAAS. Annual gifts are applied in the current academic year through the school’s operating budget. Pledges are due in full on or before May 31, 2018. Gifts are fully tax deductible in the calendar year received.

Donor participation is unique to each person and family. We welcome the opportunity to talk with you about your philanthropy and ways to support SAAS.
