Gifts & Giving

Academy teachers and administrators are empowered with the flexibility to respond quickly to the curiosity, enthusiasm and needs of our students thanks to Annual Fund gifts of all sizes.

A community of philanthropy

As an independent school, Columbus Academy designs its own programs and operates without financial support from local or federal taxes. Therefore, like all independent schools, we rely on tuition income, Annual Fund contributions, endowment income and other fundraising activities to support our innovative and challenging academic programs.

Last school year, the Academy community came together to raise a record $1,643,977 for the Annual Fund, which was put to immediate use for the school's greatest needs, including faculty support, arts, athletics, student financial aid and innovative programming.

Everyone in our community is asked to participate – in any way they are able – in the Annual Fund every school year.
