Why Giving Matters at La Pietra?
Give to the Annual Fund!
The Annual Fund consists of unrestricted donations which allow the school to address present needs and immediate priorities.
Where Does My Gift Go?Priority expenditures include:
- Curriculum resources
- Technology upgrades
- Field trips
- Athletics and Art programs
- Continuing Education & Professional Development for Staff and Faculty
La Pietra's budget comes from three primary resources: Tuition Revenue, Endowment Proceeds, and Annual Fund donations. Tuition revenue covers approximately 75% of the cost of a La Pietra education and, like every private school; La Pietra fills the gap between the total cost and tuition paid with monies from the Annual Fund.
We are proud to report that our faculty and staff and Board of Trustees consistently have 100% participation rates in the Annual Fund. Over the past several years, the rate of participation by parents has increased dramatically, from 15% in 2008-09 to 82% in 2015-16!
Committed Annual Fund participation by all members of the La Pietra 'ohana with a gift of any size helps our school remain strong and demonstrates a belief in the school by those we serve.
