Go BIG Giving Days
We went BIG, thanks to YOU!
In honor of our final year of the Shape Tomorrow campaign, we asked the EA community to go BIG in their support of our beloved school by making their most meaningful gift to The Episcopal Fund on our bigger-than-ever Giving Days on Feb. 8-10... and the results were BIGGER than ever!
In just three days, 463 donors generously gave $512,678.52 to The Episcopal Fund in honor of the people, programs, and possibilities at EA!
From the bottom of our hEArts, THANK YOU for making our Go BIG Giving Days the BIGGEST and best in EA's history! Your extraordinary support will make a BIG impact on our students and faculty as we all work to shape tomorrow.

"I give back as an alum because EA gave me the confidence and opportunity to pursue my passions. I give back as a parent because I see those same opportunities awarded to my children as they explore what drives them and helps them develop into leaders of the future."
