Annual Giving

Elevate: Annual Giving is the foundation of all fundraising initiatives at St. John's School. These funds support, expand and strengthen our programmes, resources and facilities on an ongoing basis.

When you support Annual Giving, you are providing every St. John's student with the opportunity to participate, excel and lead.
