Annual Fund

The CSG Annual Fund is the number one giving priority for Columbus School for Girls. Annual Fund dollars account for approximately seven percent of the School’s operating budget and help bridge the per-student gap between tuition and the actual cost to educate each child.

Gifts to the Annual Fund are not for “extras” but rather to afford our students the education that sets CSG apart from other schools. Without these funds, tuition would increase significantly, making our mission of sustaining a diverse culture that represents our community and world a very difficult goal to achieve.

The school-- and thus the Annual Fund-- operates on a fiscal year that runs from July 1 - June 30. The goal each year is 100% participation from our community, especially from parents and alumnae. Every gift to the CSG Annual Fund makes a difference, and full participation is vital to our success. There are a variety of ways to participate and impact at every gift level.
