Annual Fund

Annual Fund

The transformational Gonzaga Prep experience is made possible by generous support of the Annual Fund. Gonzaga Prep offers a distinguished and rigorous academic program to prepare students for college and to become life long learners in service to others. Annual Fund support is made up of unrestricted gifts from alumni, parents, friends and businesses during the school’s fiscal year: July 1 through June 30.


Revenue generated from fundraising events and the Corporate Companions program is included in the Annual Fund, which is used for budgetary support, and delivers the tuition assistance needed by 6 out of every 10 students through the Fair Share Tuition Assistance program. We ask all parents, alumni and our business partners to support the Annual Fund each year.




PRESIDENT'S CLUB The President's Club is the backbone of the Annual Fund. Donors contribute $1,500 or more per year and are listed in a special category of the Annual Report. President’s Club donors are hosted at the President’s Appreciation Reception every spring.

Thousands of alumni are grateful for the transformative experience they received from Gonzaga Prep and want to give back to their alma mater. Nearly all of the new construction on campus has been funded by the generosity of our alumni through individual support and the support of their businesses. However, the percentage of alumni who support the annual fund could be much higher. Our goal is to encourage and increase alumni participation, knowing that so many alumni believe strongly in the school’s mission and want those in need to have the same opportunity as they did.

PARENT GIVING With the cost of tuition being less than the actual cost to educate a Gonzaga Prep student, every family benefits from support of the Annual Fund. Gifts to the Annual Fund are an investment in your students' future because those funds benefit their academic and extracurricular experiences. Families are asked to help meet the needs of the school by giving, financially and also giving of their time.

OTHER SUPPORT During the course of a school year, students will be involved in a club, sport or activity that has a fundraiser for apparel, equipment, a team trip, or some other unique experience above that program’s budget. These gifts help keep those programs strong, and your support is wonderful and appreciated. However, support like this is above and beyond the Annual Fund appeal. For the general good of the school, we hope that you will make it a priority to support the Annual Fund as well as student activities.
