Greetings from the Development office! While the economy makes raising funds for programs and general operations a challenge, Santa Fe Girls’ School is in great fiscal shape, in part because it is conscientious, but also because we have a great program that consistently creates strong, smart girls each year.
Tuition covers 82% of the cost to educate each student, and School seeks funding to make up the 18%. In the recent past, the School has worked with:
Los Alamos National Laboratories Foundation,
McCune Charitable Trust,
Thaw Charitable Trust,
Witter Bynner Foundation for Poetry,
Wells Fargo Foundation,
The Frost Foundation,
New Mexico Community Foundation,
PNM Energy Exploration.
Their support, along with yours, is crucial. Your contribution makes it possible for us to keep tuition at half the cost of other private middle schools in Santa Fe, and still provide tuition assistance to those families who qualify.
Your contribution makes it possible to offer a safe, intimate, personalized setting for adolescent girls to thrive and develop into critical thinkers. It makes it possible to offer a well-rounded fine arts program, along with fitness and elective classes. It means we can remunerate passionate and skilled teachers with good salaries, and restore our 9 acre riparian field laboratory site along the Santa Fe River to its natural state. Your help means creating better citizens and a better community, and we appreciate it deeply.
This School does an amazing job. I have been teaching there 15 years and seen class after class of girls change into their own womanhood and power. It is the most thoughtful staff and curriculum I have ever encountered.
