The St. John’s Fund

Each year, donations to the St. John’s Fund enhance the education and character development of St. John’s students. Tuition covers only the foundational cost of educating our students, and the St. John's Fund provides the resources that make a St. John’s education truly exceptional. Alumni, parents and friends of the school invest annually in the current generation of students through their donations. These funds strengthen the school’s programs and serve as an important endorsement of the school's mission to open doors, unlock talents and build leaders.
This essential financial support is applied to areas of need, such as:
  • Adding crucial funding to enhance academic and co-curricular programs
  • Ensuring all qualified students can attend through our tuition assistance programs
  • Expanding the Christian Service Program
  • Providing resources for the president’s unique initiatives
The St. John’s Fund is essential to the school’s operational budget. You can direct your gift to the area of greatest need, athletics, the arts, tuition assistance or faculty enrichment. If you have a particular program you wish to support, such as the Robotics Club, girls' basketball or the band, you may also direct your contribution to that program.
If you have questions about giving to the St. John’s Fund, contact Director of Annual Giving Heather Long, 202.364.0229. To make a gift online, click here.

    Calculating the Value of Your Donation
    Once the order is made, the valuation date is the day that the shares transfer out of the account to the receiving charity's account. Assuming there is an active market for the contributed stock, the fair market value of each share or bond is the average price between the highest and lowest quoted selling prices on the valuation date.

  • Endowment Gifts

    Gifts to the endowment are cash or tangible property, such as stock, bonds and real estate, that are invested to generate income for a designated purpose. An endowment gift is held in perpetuity and managed by the Board of Trustees' Finance Committee to generate investment income. Typically, 5% of the investment income is spent for the purpose designated by the donor and any income in excess of 5% is returned to the endowment to ensure it continues to grow over time.

    Endowed funds are established for a wide range of purposes, ranging from scholarships to building maintenance to faculty professional development. Endowment gifts may be directed to the general endowment fund or to one of the many endowed scholarships and funds that have been established for a specific purpose.

    If you are interested in learning more about endowment gifts or establishing a scholarship fund, please contact Mark Gibbs, 202-364-0229.

  • Physical Plant Gifts

    Capital gifts are essential to the continued improvement and expansion of St. John's facilities. The current building on Military Road was built in 1959 through an extensive capital campaign. Over time, the main building has required important renovations and expansion, and the results of recent capital campaigns can be seen in the Kimsey Science Center, the Fitzpatrick Library and Cassidy Commons. The objective of these campaigns is to ensure St. John’s students have the best possible facilities in which to learn, develop and grow.

    As the Board of Trustees continues to develop St. John’s master plan, future capital campaigns will provide for needed growth in the school’s physical plant.
