Giving Opportunities

Annual Fund

Casady School is an independent, college preparatory, Episcopal day school that educates the mind, body, and spirit of its students. 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 gifs 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
