The St. Paul’s Schools depends on the generosity of our community to fulfill our educational mission. Your gift is an investment in the people, programs, and values that are at the heart of what we do. Your contribution allows us to provide big opportunities in a small school setting, where each child is known and supported by dedicated, caring teachers and staff.
Our teams work collaboratively to engage alumni, parents, grandparents, corporations, foundations and friends to support both general needs, such as faculty enrichment, extracurricular programs, and financial aid, as well as special initiatives within each school. Donors who wish to may direct their gifts to a specific school or area of need. However, the majority of donations are unrestricted, enabling the schools’ leadership team to direct resources where they are most needed.
The St. Paul’s Schools is a registered 501(c)3 corporation, and your gift is fully deductible as allowed by law. To learn more about donating to The St. Paul's Schools, contact Kevin Sottak, vice president of advancement, at 410-821-3045 or email@example.com. Thank you in advance for your support!

Like all independent schools, we depend on donations to fund a portion of the annual operating budget. In 2020, the Gator Fund and St. Paul’s Fund raised more than $2.3 million to support programs from pre-K through grade 12, campus-wide.
Bridges was founded in 1993 as a four-week summer enrichment program on the campus of The St. Paul’s Schools. It initially served 18 elementary school students from a Title I school in northeast Baltimore. Students were supported by a paid seasonal staff and a handful of high school-aged volunteers from The St. Paul’s Schools. The program has expanded significantly since that time. In the 2020-2021 year, it is working year-round with 296 Baltimore City youth ages 9-23 and engaging 188 independent school student volunteers from its two host sites. Annually, 110 upper school students from The St. Paul’s Schools serve 5,000 hours as after school tutors and assistant camp counselors in Bridges programs.
Our campus and physical infrastructure, including educational buildings, athletic facilities, the arts center, and common spaces, were funded through donations. As a result, the schools have very low debt, which allows tuition dollars to go farther. At this time, both St. Paul’s School for Boys and St. Paul’s School for Girls are actively raising funds for capital projects. To learn more about these initiatives, contact Jillian Pinkard (St. Paul’s School for Boys) or Kimberly Stevenson Parks (St. Paul’s School for Girls).
The schools’ endowment provides continuing support for current and future excellence, by generating investment income that subsidizes tuition and annual gifts. As of June 30, 2020 the schools’ combined endowment is $59.9 million and the draw for the 2021 budget year is $2.4 million. To learn more about the endowment, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The schools’ advancement offices coordinate a variety of events to help build community and raise funds. The Swamp Soiree and Brooklandwood Bash annually raise more than $200,000 combined to support faculty and student programs. The annual Blue-Gold/Green& White Reunion Weekend brings alumni and alumnae back to campus to reconnect with each other and their teachers. Email email@example.com for more information.
In response to the financial hardship experienced by many families as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Board of Trustees of The St. Paul’s Schools has established COVID-19 Emergency Relief. The St. Paul’s Schools recognize that all families may not be impacted at the same time or in the same way. So that we may assist as many families as possible, emergency relief funds will be allocated to eligible families on a short-term basis contingent upon demonstrated financial need.
If you are in a position to help, a gift of any size to support our families in need is very much appreciated. All gifts are tax deductible and count toward your Annual Fund support of the schools.
