What is the Annual Fund?

The Annual Fund is Sandia Prep's annual giving campaign organized to inspire charitable giving from our parents, alumni, grandparents, parents of alumni and friends for the general operating budget. Tuition alone does not cover the actual cost of educating a student at Sandia Prep. In fact, it only covers about 90%, with the remainder coming primarily from the Annual Fund and other revenue.

Why give?

A gift to the Annual Fund is the single most important gift you can make to Sandia Prep each year. When you join our community in charitable giving, your financial support ensures that Sandia Prep is able to: • Offer students an academic curriculum sure to prepare them for the future; • Equip classrooms with technology that facilitates learning; • Support faculty in their ability to remain at the cutting edge of their academic disciplines; • Provide arts programs that inspire and foster creativity and personal expression; and • Maintain athletic programs designed to instill the spirit of teamwork and competition.

How the school use my gift?

Gifts to Sandia Prep’s Annual Fund go directly to the operational budget of the School. Your generosity helps Sandia Prep attract and retain the brightest faculty who prepare our students for lives of responsibility in the rapidly changing world.
