The Annual Fund

2018 Annual Fund Drive - ALL IN

Every fall we kick-start the Seacrest Annual Fund with a month-long focused drive beginning in October.

What an exciting year to be part of the Seacrest community! When we are ALL IN we can deliver our mission, further our school, and make an impactful difference in the lives of our students.

Our theme for the 2018-19 academic year – and for the Annual Fund Drive - is “ALL IN”. Our goal is 100% participation from employees, parents, alumni parents, grandparents, trustees and friends of Seacrest.

Help Seacrest reach our $350,000 goal and 100% participation for our Annual Fund Drive! Make your gift today to make a difference!

Together, we are ALL IN for our students, ALL IN for our programs, and ALL IN for our mission.

Your charitable and tax-deductible contribution to the Seacrest Annual Fund supports faculty and staff salaries, professional development, programs, campus maintenance and improvements, financial aid and more. To learn more about how your gift to the Seacrest Annual Fund makes a difference, visit our Annual Fund page.

Foundation of Giving

An annual fund at most private, independent schools serves as the foundation of giving. Each year, schools rely on unrestricted annual fund contributions to provide special resources for students and faculty that support educational initiatives not covered by tuition alone.

Seacrest Country Day School’s Annual Fund is the school’s top fundraising priority each year because it directly supports the school’s mission and shows our dedication to our greatest assets – amazing students and outstanding teachers.

Make your gift to the Seacrest Annual Fund today to make a difference!

The unrestricted funds raised each academic year enable Seacrest to:

  • Provide outstanding, creative, unique and excellent academic education focusing on relevant foundational skills, hands-on projects, inquiry-based learning and creative problem solving.
  • Attract and retain dedicated, passionate and highly-skilled teachers who are involved in all aspects of our students’ life including sports, clubs, after-school programs, advisory, leadership and mentor support.
  • Offer small class sizes, mixed-grade project experiences, cross-curricular integration and one-on-one attention.
  • Deliver inspiring, hands-on and meaningful learning experiences that involve students, teachers, community partners, and often parents, too
  • Create dynamic and unique programs including all-school creative inquiry projects on current and relevant issues (such as red tide and water quality in Southwest Florida, or our national award-winning Robotics program).
  • Combine fine arts, creative and visual arts, performing arts and digital arts and technology into a one-of a kind Art Program that delivers student-driven projects such as our annual Fashion Show, Jamfest Talent Show, Art in the Park, Sidewalk Chalk Art, Middle and Upper School musicals, holiday concerts and more.
  • Develop multi-curricular athletes and strengthen our competitive athletics program that focuses on a balanced approach to academics and sports, team and individual development, and leadership development.
  • Enable access to and inclusion of a growing family of mission-appropriate students through our robust tuition assistance program.
  • Maintain a welcoming, clean, spacious, friendly and vibrant campus and grounds– a home away from home for our students, teachers, staff and families and our community.

The Annual Fund enables Seacrest to sustain our current offerings as well as continually build for the future and ensure our legacy.

The Seacrest Annual Fund is open to receive gifts throughout the academic year (July 1-June 30). Make your gift today to make a difference!

It’s All About Participation

A successful and sustained annual fund depends on the participation of every member of the school community. This is why we invite parents, grandparents, alumni, trustees, former parents and grandparents, friends, faculty, staff, administrators, community partners, corporations, and foundations—to help maintain our excellence.

Your participation will serve as a meaningful statement about your commitment to our school, our mission, our community and our students and teachers. Give to the Seacrest Annual Fund because you believe in our mission, the dedication of our teachers and staff, and the limitless potential of a Seacrest education for your students.Your gift, in any amount, is a meaningful investment in the education of your child and each and every student at Seacrest. No gift is too small, and every gift counts.

It is your contributions to the Annual Fund that help makes the overall growth and success of Seacrest as an institution, possible.
