The Raise Your Hand Annual Fund is a yearly appeal for donations that is typical in independent schools, and most non-profit organizations. Saratoga Independent School is no exception as we rely on these voluntary unrestricted gifts to support financial aid, academic program enhancements, faculty salaries, and professional development.
We are an inclusive school that values participation and respects the variations in giving ability of our community. All donations directly impact the school year in which they are given, are fully tax-deductible, and deeply appreciated.
This year, in honor of our 25th Anniversary, we have created the LEGACY CIRCLE of giving. Special recognition will be created and placed on a wall in the school for donors who cumulatively give $1,000 or more throughout the academic year. Qualifying donations are: Annual Fund, Gala Sponsorship, Capital Campaign (to be announced soon), and any other outright donation. The levels are as follows:
- EAGLE ($50,000+)
- HAWK ($25,000 – $49,999)
- FALCON ($10,000 – $24,999)
- OWL ($5,000 – $9,999)
- BLUE BIRD ($2,500 – $4,999)
- CHICKADEE ($250 student level)
Gifts are accepted via cash, check, stock or credit card.
Please make checks payable to “Saratoga Independent School” and mail to: Saratoga Independent School – Annual Giving Campaign, 459 Lake Avenue, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866.
