Will You be a Difference Maker?

Did you know that St. Stephen’s spends more than $1,500 per student above and beyond tuition on enhancements and upgrades every year? These enhancements touch every student and every classroom and take our school from good to great.

We fund these difference makers with charitable contributions to the Annual Fund, foundation grants, and other support.

Our giving Leadership Circles encourage donation at the Friends of St. Stephen’s level and above. Starting with the Bulldog Circle, donors will enjoy special recognition.
