The All Saints Fund

The All Saints Fund is our annual giving campaign that supports programs that are critical to the All Saints experience. Donations to The All Saints Fund are the additional investment of resources that ensures that we can continue to provide an innovative, creative, and memorable student experience that inspires and engages.
The All Saints Fund strengthens and sustains our operating budget as the cost of tuition does not fully fund our school.  Gifts to The All Saints Fund enable our school to continue to provide the very best educational experience for our students. We ask all families to please make All Saints one of your philanthropies of choice.

List of 8 frequently asked questions.

  • We already pay tuition, why do we need to donate money to the school?

    The All Saints Fund helps keep tuitions as low as possible. Like almost all independent schools, tuition does not cover the full cost of an All Saints education. Funds raised through the The All Saints Fund bridge the gap between tuition revenue and the cost of running the school, and provides the added resources in order to take our school from good to great.
  • Who gives to The All Saints Fund?

    Everyone in the All Saints community: parents, grandparents, alumni, Board of Trustees, faculty and staff, and friends of the school.
  • How much should I give?

    What you give is entirely up to you, but we hope that All Saints will be a philanthropic priority for every All Saints family and ask that you make a gift that is meaningful to your family. No gift is too small and every gift is important and appreciated. Last year, the average gift size was $250, with gifts ranging from $15 to $10,000.
  • What is a matching gift?

    Many companies will match charitable contributions by their employees. The company helps to support worthy causes and the employee can maximize the amount donated to the charity. Many All Saints parents work for matching gift companies—please check with your human resources department or your employer to see if they will match your gift. If your gift is matched by your employer, the matched amount will be counted towards your total giving and acknowledged as such in the Annual Report.
  • What impact will my small gift have?

    Every gift, regardless of size, is important and appreciated and brings us closer to reaching our fundraising goal. Gifts of any size inspire more people to give; they are a vote of confidence in our school and our community.
  • What does the money from the The All Saints Fund go toward?

    Your investment in the The All Saints Fund supports all areas of the school. Gifts cover "value added" expenses like: 
    1. Enhance the breadth and depth of our curriculum
    2. Attract and retain the finest faculty
    3. Augment financial aid
    4. Technology improvements
    5. Sustain the operation and maintenance of our facilities and 150-acre campus
  • How will my Annual Fund gift be acknowledged?

    Your gift will be acknowledged in the Annual Report, which is distributed each spring and lists all donors to the school. If you prefer, you can make your gift anonymously by directing the Development Office to not list your name. If your gift is matched by your employer, the matched amount will be counted towards your total giving and acknowledged as such in the Annual Report.
  • Why not simply raise the tuition and eliminate The All Saints Fund?

    Like most other independent schools, All Saints relies on The All Saints Fund income to bridge the gap between tuition revenue and the expenses associated with operating the School. In addition, gifts to The All Saints Fund are completely tax deductible while additional tuition would not be.

Today, we are launching the All Saints Fund Campaign for the 2020-2021 school year.

When Drew and I were asked to Chair the All Saints Fund for this year, we said yes without question! Our hearts are full of love and pride for All Saints. We want to tell you all the reasons we LOVE our school, and why we give to The All Saints Fund every year.
Here are a few of our
LOVES:
  • Safe, secure campus
  • Hands-on learning that goes far beyond classroom walls
  • Teachers become like family
  • Largest school learning farm in Texas – oh the chickens!
  • Exposure to new and healthy foods at school
  • Opportunities for our kids to thrive, no matter what they are passionate about
  • Our children will be prepared and equipped for the future
 
We give to the All Saints Fund because we care deeply about education for all students, not just our own. The theme of this year’s All Saints Fund is Every Trojan. Your donation of $50, $250, $100 or even $10 will help support EVERY student.
The All Saints Fund is a crucial part of our school’s livelihood. Money raised goes directly into our operating budget, the largest part of which is for faculty compensation. As a community we must remain committed to our incredible teachers who dedicate their lives to our children. The All Saints Fund also goes toward professional development for teachers, maintaining our beautiful campus, and enhancing technology in the classroom. 

The goal for this year’s Annual Fund is $275,000 by December 31. We hope to achieve 100% parent participation. Your participation is counted even if you give $5 or $10--the amount doesn't matter. Participat
ion is important because educational foundations look at the participation rate when awarding grant money to schools. Right now, All Saints is a finalist for the E.E. Ford Foundation Grant. If selected, All Saints would receive $100,000 grant to create a network of schools promoting agile thinking and student agency.
 
100% of our teachers have donated to the All Saints Fund. Will you join them? Will you join us?
 
Together, we can reach our goal! Thank you for choosing All Saints. 
 
Gratefully,
Catherine and Drew Bankston
