Your gift benefits our students today and our leaders of tomorrow.
St. Lawrence Academy is always seeking better ways to expand the educational opportunities offered to our students, to further maintain our high academic standards, and update our equipment and facilities. Like nearly every private school, we require additional funds beyond the revenue provided by the annual tuition to accomplish these goals. We must rely on fundraising and donations. The following are ways you can support St. Lawrence Academy:
The Annual Fund
Contributions to the Annual Fund support all areas of the operating budget and enhance the education of our children.
The Annual Fund provides:
- Competitive salaries and benefits for faculty
- Quality classroom resources and materials, including computer technology and software, as well as new updated textbooks
- Expanded athletic program
- Extracurricular art and music
- Field and service expeditions
- Maintenance and repair of school facilities and grounds
- Unforeseen expenses that may arise throughout the year
The Scholarship Fund
St. Lawrence Academy strives to attract a diverse student body of the best students. Our scholarship program aims to support this effort and provide aid to deserving students who might not otherwise be able to afford a St. Lawrence Academy education.
The Endowment Fund
The Barbara Hardenbrook Memorial Fund provides a strong financial base for the school and ensures its future financial security. Interest income is generated from the principal to be used as needed to attract and retain outstanding faculty or further support the operating budget as specified above under Annual Fund.
The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible purchases. Look for products marked “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” on their product detail pages.*
Here’s how to get started:
Go to http://smile.amazon.com/ch/77-0501827 and sign in like you normally would. (You can also access AmazonSmile by entering it in the search line of the regular Amazon website.)
Select St. Lawrence Orthodox Church (that’s who it goes through) by entering it into the search box. For the Academy to receive donations you must make this designation BEFORE you begin shopping.
Amazon will remember your selection and subsequently every eligible purchase you make on AmazonSmile will result in a donation to St. Lawrence Academy. Your Amazon account information remains the same when using the shopping cart, wish List, wedding and baby registry, and other account settings; it’s seamless!
Once you’ve signed up, all you have to do is go to smile.amazon.com or create a link in your toolbar.
*Donations actually come from the AmazonSmile Foundation to St. Lawrence Academy, so the donation is not tax deductible for shoppers.
