The Annual Fund

I give to SFS because I know I am supporting an enduring legacy of excellence. My family is honored to be a part of the
greater good SFS is doing in the world.

Why the Annual Fund?

SFS is a non-profit school. To provide the highest level of educational and extracurricular programming year after year, we rely on donors to bridge the gap between tuition and the actual cost of educating an SFS student. The quality of our teachers, rich academic experiences and world-class facilities and equipment are made possible by the generosity of our community.

The Annual Fund provides financial resources beyond tuition revenue to provide more enriched and enhanced learning opportunities. Each year, generous donations from our community help further support:

  • academic programs
  • extra-curricular programs
  • service learning programs
  • faculty training
  • facility upgrades

A strong Annual Fund ensures the high quality education and comprehensive programs SFS students deserves. Tuition covers only part of a well-rounded SFS education and Annual Fund fills the gap by supporting wide-ranging programs in the current school year.

When you make a contribution to the Annual Fund, you join the many students, parents, faculty and staff, alumni and friends providing valuable philanthropic support to our school. Your donation, of any amount, demonstrates a commitment to our school, our students, and our mission.
