Philosophy of Philanthropy



As current members of the St. Luke's community, we treasure the school's excellence and culture.

We share the responsibility to preserve and improve St. Luke's School so that we can pass it along to the next generation of students, parents, and faculty in a better state than we found it.

As a small school, we count and depend on each family to take an active role in exercising this responsibility in a manner consistent with the principles of the St. Luke's Way.

In order to maintain our standards of excellence without raising tuition to a level that would undermine our competitive position and the rich diversity of our student body, it is imperative that tuition and fee income be supplemented in a consistent and robust manner.

All of us must play our part, small or large, privately or publicly, in giving to the Annual Fund, building our endowment, and participating in capital campaigns. We must accept this responsibility in the knowledge that developing a culture of giving at St. Luke's will only enhance and secure everything we treasure about the school.
