Saint Thomas' Episcopal School

The Saint Thomas’ Fund

The Good, The True, and the Beautiful

The Saint Thomas’ Fund is the fundraising priority for the school. All money raised helps fulfill needs that would not be possible with tuition dollars alone, from curriculum enhancements and faculty seminars to technology upgrades and campus beautification efforts. The five-week campaign is held annually in the fall. Parent participation kicks off each September and wraps up in October, with gifts and pledges payable through August.

The Saint Thomas’ Fund provides you an opportunity to contribute to the growth of our students as citizens, scholars, and leaders. Your gift makes a real difference to STE, and we appreciate your ongoing support.

Participation by our school board, faculty and staff, parents, and alumni is crucial when approaching outside sources of funding like foundations and corporations. That’s why the entire school community is asked to participate every year.


The STE Legends Fund gives donors the option of designating unrestricted gifts to specific STE departments while honoring beloved faculty and staff of the school. All gifts made to the STE Legends Fund are made in memoriam of a faculty or staff member who was employed by the school for a minimum of 10 years and made a lasting impact on the school and its students.

The STE Legends and the corresponding academic areas are:

  • Mrs. Louise Horr, Mr. Barry Stewart – English
  • Mrs. Anne Gwathmey, Mrs. Alice Thuman – Latin
  • Mr. Charles Underwood – History
  • Mr. Arthur R. Marshall – Math
  • The Rev. T. Robert Ingram – Religion/Philosophy
  • Mrs. Barbara Caldwell – Science
  • Col. John Hilliard – Government/Mock Trial

All gifts designated for the STE Legends Fund in a given fiscal year will be spent at the discretion of the Department Head and in consultation with the STE Headmaster.
