The Starfish Fund

Annual Giving is a vital part of private education and contributes approximately 4% to the Beaches Episcopal School operating budget. We rely upon the generosity of our parents, grandparents, special friends and alumni of Beaches Episcopal School to enable us to continue our long tradition of providing academic excellence in an environment that cultivates our student’s individual initiative, enabling them to succeed in school, serve their community and reflect God’s love.

Starfish Fund gifts allow us to supplement our curriculum and academic programs, professional development for our faculty and many other benefits to the daily enrichment of our students. Your gifts are tax deductible.
