Giving to EA
To preserve its place as one of the finest independent day schools in the nation, The Episcopal Academy must rely on the generous financial support of its alumni, parents, and friends.
In our final year of our Shape Tomorrow campaign, we ask you to consider your most meaningful gift to any of the following areas. With your help, we can shape tomorrow by investing in our school today.
Annual Giving: The Episcopal Fund
Annual Giving is the lifeblood of The Episcopal Academy and is the number-one fundraising priority at Episcopal. It bridges the gap between the school's annual operating expenses and those proceeds collected from tuition and income from the school's endowment. As the easiest way to participate in Shape Tomorrow, please consider designating your Episcopal Fund gift to our campaign priorities of Faculty, Financial Aid, or our exciting, new state-of-the-art Lower School Playground.
Capital & Endowment Giving
Capital campaigns are time-limited efforts proposed by the Board of Trustees for a specific need, such as construction of campus facilities or building the endowment. Growing the endowment is currently the school’s top capital fundraising priority. Of all the philanthropy that enables EA to fulfill its mission most effectively and most widely, gifts to endowment are the most powerful and permanent. A strong, growing endowment ensures EA’s financial health and sustainability and generates a predictable stream of income that supports planning for the future and leveraging potential. Shape Tomorrow aims to attract new endowed funds to invest in the people who elevate and enrich our school: our students and our teachers.
Through participation in the Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) and Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC) programs, individuals and businesses with significant tax liability can earn PA tax credits when they make a contribution to a scholarship organization like The Episcopal Academy. Support of EA through these programs are critical to our mission of building an unmatched learning community.
Planned giving encompasses a variety of strategies that help you provide for charities while also advancing your own personal objectives. New documented planned gifts are countable towards the Shape Tomorrow campaign and have a significant impact on EA's endowment.
