What is the Class Gift Initiative?

As the first students to make memories and form lifelong bonds in the reimagined Upper School, the Saints Together Class Gift Initiative is an opportunity for parents, friends, and family of graduates in the 2024, 2025, 2026, 2027, and 2028 class years to leave a legacy for their students. Although the Class of 2024 will not benefit from the new space as students, the enhancements will lift higher the concept of community and add value to a Saints diploma while welcoming them home as alumni. 

How does it work?

Class gifts will be combined per class year to name a space in the new reimagined Upper School. For example, “Class of 2028 Dining Hall Banquette.”

If I make a gift to the Class Gift Initiative, does it count as a gift to Saints Together?


How will my gift be recognized?

Gifts under $25,000 will be recognized solely as part of the Class Gift. Families giving $25,000 (including gifts pledged out over five years) will be recognized as part of the Saints Together donor wall displayed as part of the renovated Upper School. Families giving over $100,000 may have a space named in their honor. Please contact the Advancement Office at campaign@sssas.org if interested in further information.

How is it different from The Saints Fund? 

While The Saints Fund is a critical cornerstone to the success of Saints Together, gifts through the Class Gift Initiative will support the successful completion of the reimagined Upper School’s construction. Gifts to the Class Gift Initiative will not be attributed to The Saints Fund.

I have more than one student in different grades. Can my gift be divided between their class years?

Yes, you can make one gift and provide instruction to split the gift between your students’ class years or you may make an individual gift to each class. Please note, if you make a single gift for more than one class year, your total gift will be reflected for each class year. For example, if you make a gift of $100,000 and have a student in the Class of 2025, 2026, and 2028, your $100,000 gift will be posted in each of those Class Gifts.
