The St. John’s Annual Fund

Donations to the St. John’s Annual Fund enhance the education and character development of St. John’s students. While tuition covers the foundational cost of educating our students, the St. John's Annual Fund provides the resources that make the St. John’s experience truly exceptional. SJC Alumni, parents and friends of the school invest in the current generation of students through their donations. This generosity strengthens the school's programs and serves as an important endorsement of our mission to form men and women dedicated to achievement, service, and leadership.
This essential financial support is applied to areas of need, including:
  • 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
The St. John’s Annual Fund is essential to the school’s operational budget. Gifts may be directed to the area of greatest need, or to programs including athletics, the arts, tuition assistance, or faculty enrichment.
For questions about the St. John’s Annual Fund, contact Heather Long, director of annual giving, at or 202-363-2316 ext. 1061. To make a gift online, click here.

  • 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.

    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, director of development, at or 202-363-2315 ext. 1068.

  • 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 for the school’s physical plant.
