The advancement program at St. John’s School is focused in a manner that is somewhat unique to day schools. Rather than multiple appeals for philanthropic support during the course of the year, emphasis is placed on the St. John’s Fund
, which provides unrestricted funds for support of the overall mission of the School. These funds provide a measure of excellence that directly benefits the student experience.
The St. John’s Fund is the foundation of the philanthropic program at St. John’s. Since there is not a series of other appeals such as a gala, auction or other official fundraising programs, families are asked to make a thoughtful single philanthropic gift in support of the mission of St. John’s.
