Each year, the Annual Fund supports the strong academic and extracurricular programs that continue to make National Cathedral School one of the premier girls’ institutions in the country. Participation in the Annual Fund is crucial to the health and vitality of the school, allowing NCS to maintain its high standards and excellence and demonstrating the commitment of the community to its past, present and future. Last year, 100% of the faculty and staff and 90% of current parents supported the Annual Fund.
The goal for the Annual Fund, which runs from July 1, 2016, to June 30, 2017, is $1,939,889.
The Annual Fund bridges the gap between tuition income and the real cost of educating each NCS girl. Annual Fund dollars provide immediate support for our students by covering the tuition gap of more than $7,400 per student; playing a critical role in helping to achieve competitive salaries for faculty and staff; providing critical financial aid dollars for today’s girls; offering NCS girls access to state-of-the-art technology and facilities.
While our vision for NCS looks to the future of our school and our community, the Annual Fund provides for the requirements of today. Sustained growth of annual giving will help ensure immediate needs are always met. For this reason, it is included as a key component of the Educating Women for the World
