What is the Annual Fund?

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, 86% of current parents and 24% of alumnae supported the Annual Fund.
The goal for the Annual Fund, which runs from July 1, 2018, to June 30, 2019, is $2,038,097.
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 playing a critical role in helping to achieve competitive salaries for faculty and staff, providing critical financial aid dollars for today's girls, and 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.
Thank you for your support of NCS! Please contact Annual Fund Director Catherine Paschal if you have any questions.
