The Annual Fund

Unparalleled Academic Excellence
Steeped in the Benedictine Tradition

Each year, your support of the Annual Fund helps make up the difference in our budget between what is covered by tui­tion and what is not. This helps keep tuition at a level that is more affordable for families and ensures that students who will most benefit from a St. Anselm’s education can attend.

You may direct your Annual Fund donation to one of the following areas:

Current-Year Financial Aid

St. Anselm’s is committed to remaining accessible to all academically gifted young men regardless of their family’s financial circumstances. Your donations are crucial to our exceptional education accessible to all who have what it takes to be admitted.

The Monastic Community

The Benedictine monks of St. Anselm’s Abbey founded our school in 1942, and they continue to play a vital role in our school. The monastic community needs financial support to face the double challenge of providing medical care for its aging members and education and spiritual formation for new monks.

Overall School Budget

Annual Fund gifts help to fund the portion of our operating budget not covered by tuition. In the past these donations have allowed us to cover the costs of technology upgrades and safety enhancements to our campus.
