Annual Giving
/Parent Annual Giving is a partnership, one that exists at all independent schools. Tuition alone does not sustain the level of excellence we desire for our children. Your gift provides the necessary funds to bridge the gap between our expenses and tuition income. It makes available resources that enhance academic programs, enrich activities for our children, and guarantee that qualified applicants may receive a Phoenix education regardless of their parents’ financial circumstances.

Since all Phoenix School families benefit from our Annual Giving Campaign, we look to all families to give at a level that is personally significant for them and that Phoenix families consider placing Phoenix among their top philanthropic priorities. All gifts, regardless of size, are vital to our school and greatly appreciated.

What Do Our Annual Giving Dollars Provide?
Your giving to the Annual Fund directly supports our students and faculty.

• An outstanding faculty whose skills are continuously enhanced through professional development workshops and education programs.
• The best in instructional materials, equipment and new technology.
• Financial aid and scholarships for over 20% students
• Resources for performing and fine arts.

How Does Annual Giving Differ from other Phoenix Fundraising?
Phoenix School’s Annual Giving drive is a school –wide campaign to which all families are expected to make a yearly gift. It goes hand-in-hand with our annual auction event. All other school fundraising is voluntary.

How much should we give?
All gifts to Phoenix support our school’s academic excellence and are appreciated. Give at a level that feels comfortable for your family.

It is your choice to participate in any of the following donor groupings:

Trustees Leadership Circle

Sometime during the year, you will receive a request in the mail or a parent volunteer solicitor will be contacting you. At that time the solicitor will discuss our Annual Giving Campaign, answer any questions you may have, and ask you to participate. It is our goal to continue our 100% participation rate among our parent body.

How will our gift be recognized?
Every fall an Annual Fund Celebrtion event is held to honor and thank our previous year’s donors. All donors are recognized in our school’s Annual Report, published each fall.
