Annual Fund and Fundraising Events



St. Stephen’s Academy is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and our available financial resources greatly affect our ability to pursue and fulfill our vision. 

Tuition and fees cover about 85% of our operational budget, and we are dedicated to keeping our tuition costs as low as possible. We make up the remaining gap through prayerful gifts to the school. For 2019-20 we need $1,200 in donations per student to reach our annual fundraising goal of $330,000. Every gift of any size makes a difference. Our goal is 100% participation for our 20 year anniversary! 


We have two major fundraising events during the year that support the Annual Fund. The first fundraising event is our annual Fall Giving campaign, which starts November 4  and ends on Giving Tuesday, which is the first Tuesday in December. Fall Giving has successfully raised around a third of the annual fundraising goal each year and relies upon a combination of a few major gifts, some matching gifts, and many smaller gifts. Our Benefit Dinner occurs annually in the spring and will take place at the Oregon Zoo on March 14, 2020. Save the date! The Benefit Dinner is our biggest fundraiser of the year and helps to support about 50% of the Annual Fund. If you want to attend or have an interest in helping to sponsor the event, please contact Kyle Killebrew to get more information.
