Giving to Casady

Annual Fund

2020-21 Annual Fund Participation

Casady relies on the generosity of its Community who give to the Casady Annual Fund. The Annual Fund doesn't just offset the gap between actual educational costs and tuition fees for each student, it does SO much more.

Like most independent schools, Casady relies on gifts to the Annual Fund to keep the engine running. Contributions support all areas of our School from academics to athletics, fine arts to financial aid. Memorial and Honor gifts are wonderful ways to support Casady while recognizing someone close to you.

Annual Fund gifts are automatically directed to the areas of greatest need at the School from year to year. However, you may choose to designate your gift to a specific area:
  • Academic Programs
  • Faculty Support
  • Financial Aid
  • Athletic Programs
  • St. Edward's Chapel

Your Participation Matters in Casady's Annual Fund Campaign!

  • We appreciate contributions of all sizes: EVERY gift matters!
  • Gifts range from $1 to $100,000… EVERY dollar counts!
