Why Do Private Schools Ask for Donations?
The short answer is that tuition and fees just don't cover the full cost of education. The formula behind most private schools is 80% of operating costs are covered by tuition and fees with the remaining 20% covered through donations, alumni, and school endowments.
Non-designated annual gift giving is the life-blood of any private school. It allows schools to retain and reward the best instructors, have the best facilities, and offer children the best education possible. Giving is a very personal thing to each individual and an investment in the future of a school.
