Sustaining our Mission
Generations of students and their families have built lifelong memories as members of the Saint Thomas’ Episcopal School community.
The role of the Advancement Office is to foster the mission of STE through purposeful fundraising, special events, community-wide communications, alumni relations, and stewardship. We strive to be a resource within the school community and a liaison for the greater Houston community and beyond.
Generous contributions of resources and time from parents, alumni, alumni parents, faculty, staff, grandparents, and friends make our advancement efforts thrive. It is through the blended efforts of those various groups that the unique character and strong, supportive community of STE has developed. Therefore, we encourage each member of the community to show support of STE not only by contributing funds, but by volunteering time to at least one event or program each year. If you’d like to volunteer, please don’t hesitate to contact the Advancement Office at 713.666.3111.
WAYS TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
We offer many opportunities for you to contribute to Saint Thomas’ Episcopal School. For details on the ways of giving listed below, please contact our Advancement Office.
You may make your tax-deductible gift with cash, a check, or any major credit card. We invite you to give to our Saint Thomas' Fund.
Many people choose to give stock, on which you may receive an income tax deduction for the full market value of the appreciated stock donated.
Companies often match charitable contributions. We encourage you to inquire if your employer will double or trip your gift.
A great way to ensure the future financial health of the school is through deferred gifts, such as bequests, charitable gift annuities, trusts and insurance. By including STE in your financial or estate plan, you provide for the school’s future, while preparing for your own.
