Philanthropy is a learned behavior. We are asking parents to partner with St. 艾格尼丝来教导我们即将成为校友的人学校的未来掌握在他们手中. 这个项目培养了你女儿的慈善精神，并有助于保持与校友和校友父母的紧密联系. 这是对学校说“谢谢”的一种有意义的方式，这所学校在过去的四年里给了你和你的女儿这么多，并将在他们的余生中继续这样做.
我们鼓励祷告, 仔细考虑你的家庭在未来五年可以做些什么. Our goal is to raise $50,000 for the scholarship. We hope that parents and students will consider multi-year pledges, 在接下来的四年里，当他们的女儿上大学的时候，哪些会加强他们的礼物的影响. In the past, parent gifts have ranged from $100 to $5,000.
You may pay your pledge anytime you choose. We will send pledge reminders 在十二月和三月 to your home address. If you provide your credit card to be charged annually, it will be done on the first day of the month selected. We do ask for your first payment to be completed by May 31, 2023, 这样我们就可以开始为2023级奖学金积累利息，并有足够的金额在下一年奖励给一个学生.
St. 艾格尼丝是一个非营利性组织，依靠捐赠者回馈学校，让我们的学费保持在较低水平, 为学生提供丰富多彩的课程和课外活动, hire and keep the excellent faculty who teach you, 举几个例子. 学费 alone does not fully cover the cost of educating an Academy Woman.
SAA donors include current parents, 过去的父母, 教职员工(100%的教师每年向SAA捐款), 我们的许多人,500年女校友. You are only months away from becoming an alumna, and we will depend on you to come back as donors, 教育工作者, 职业日演讲嘉宾, 董事会成员, 和SAYPO(圣. 艾格尼丝 Young Professionals Organization), and maybe one day as parents.
如果没有奖学金，你们十分之一的同学就不会在这里. Think about the impact your classmates have had on your life. Now take one of those classmates out.
为你的班级提供奖学金将会把一个有资格的学生带到圣. 艾格尼丝 who otherwise would not be able to come here. YOU have the power to do that – to change the life of a young woman, and the lives of the friends she will make here. 让你的朋友考虑在毕业前放弃一次去星巴克的旅行，把这笔钱捐给奖学金. If everyone in your class gave just $5 this year, you would raise $1,085.
You pay your first pledge payment at the time of commitment. 在接下来的四年里, we will send out pledge reminders twice a year, 在十二月和三月, via email and mail to your parent’s home address. You can make your annual payment online at any time. If you give us your credit card to charge annually, 5月1日收费, 每年, 在接下来的四年里.
