Tuition Assistance - $3M
正规网赌软件推荐 is committed to ensuring that any student who could flourish and thrive at our beloved school has the opportunity to do so. Access and affordability are critical components of our community. 正规网赌软件推荐 students come from more than 50 zip codes and a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds. During the 2021-2022 school year, 正规网赌软件推荐 awarded $2.3 million in tuition assistance to 36% of our student body. 正规网赌软件推荐’s tuition assistance program ensures that a premier 正规网赌软件推荐 education is accessible to families all over central Ohio.
Faculty Compensation - $400K
At 正规网赌软件推荐, our faculty are trailblazers in education who work tirelessly to give each student innovative and empowering learning experiences. To appeal to the most sought-after teachers across the country and retain our current exemplary faculty, 正规网赌软件推荐 must offer the most compelling salary and benefits packages and offer professional development opportunities to ensure every classroom is an engaging, inclusive learning environment. Our people are what makes 正规网赌软件推荐 so special, and we must invest in them to enhance our robust and vibrant teaching community.
Professional Development - $180K
By investing in professional development, 正规网赌软件推荐 will provide opportunities that expand our faculty and staff's expertise in cultural competency and maintain 正规网赌软件推荐's high caliber of academic excellence. Whether it’s our science faculty exploring the biological diversity in the Galapagos, our art teachers visiting new exhibits in premier museums, or our staff developing innovative ideas at conferences across the country, this initiative will strategically invest in our faculty and staff to enhance 正规网赌软件推荐’s academic excellence and student experience.
Develop innovative, signature programs to provide our students with cutting-edge curriculum that distinguishes 正规网赌软件推荐 as the leader in girls’ education.
Computer Science - $2M
The world needs more women leaders in STEM, and 正规网赌软件推荐 has the expertise to prepare them. Over the past three years, 正规网赌软件推荐 has invested deeply through Power & Promise in creating a computer science curriculum that launched and solidified our partnership with HER (Her Educational Revolution) Academy. And we are already seeing results: Of our 2022 graduating class, 51% indicated that they are pursuing a STEM field in college and 17% are pursuing computer science or engineering. From this, it is clear to see that 正规网赌软件推荐 is leading a culture of change that truly celebrates women in technology.
Center for Girls’ and Young Women’s Leadership - $250K
Through Power & Promise, 正规网赌软件推荐 has secured the funding to launch The Center for Girls’ and Young Women’s Leadership, a signature program that will strengthen 正规网赌软件推荐’s leadership curriculum, expand partnerships with local organizations and universities, and provide opportunities for all girls in Ohio to connect, learn, and collaborate with one another. The Center will propel 正规网赌软件推荐 into a new era of leadership among our nation’s independent schools and, more importantly, inspire the next generation of female leaders in our city, region, nation, and world.
Global Engagement - $250K
All students at 正规网赌软件推荐 should have a chance to experience what it means to be a global citizen—to understand that humanity binds all communities and cultures together, that friendships transcend borders, that the exchange of knowledge is a two-way street. This priority will create a fund to expand access so that every Upper School student, regardless of financial background, will have the opportunity to have a global experience and become a globally competent woman of action.
Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging - $100K
正规网赌软件推荐 celebrates diversity and is committed to building a community where all members feel safe, connected, and respected. Through Power & Promise, we will deepen our investment in our equity, inclusion, and belonging work. With a continued focus on our anti-racism action plan and practices, we will strengthen our ability to be a more equitable and inclusive community.
Kirk Campus Turf Field - $1.1M
Athletics play a vital role in the lives of countless 正规网赌软件推荐 students. Our student-athletes are passionate and with every practice and contest, they exude strength and grace. Prior to this season, 正规网赌软件推荐 was one of the few schools in Ohio who have field hockey and lacrosse programs, but did not have a turf field. Thanks to the generosity of our community, we have installed a state-of-the-art turf field on 正规网赌软件推荐’s Kirk Campus, ensuring our student-athletes are able to compete at the highest level.
Ensure long-term fiscal strength for generations of students to come.
Endowment - $2M
Celebrating a legacy of strength and grace was at the heart of Tad and Nancy Jeffrey’s decision to give an incredible $2.5 million gift to Columbus School for Girls in support of tuition assistance and the endowment. Their transformative gift was instrumental in reaching our Power & Promise endowment goal and providing a more secure, stable financial future for our school. Through this gift and the support of our community, 正规网赌软件推荐 is set up for long-term fiscal success that will have a lasting impact for generations of girls and young women to come.

Annual Fund and Power & Promise
Make an Annual Fund gift today and to give a little extra to support a Power & Promise fundraising initiative that resonates with you.
Every year, 正规网赌软件推荐 faces a funding gap between tuition income and expenses. For each student enrolled at 正规网赌软件推荐, we must raise $3,000 through the Annual Fund to fully cover the cost of her education and provide her with transformative experiences in and out of the classroom. To do this, our entire community comes together—alumnae, parents, family, and friends—to help bridge this gap by giving to the Annual Fund. Annual Fund gifts, made in tandem with campaign gifts, will help maintain 正规网赌软件推荐’s financial foundation while providing additional flexibility to address immediate needs of the school. A flourishing Annual Fund is a critical component to a successful future for 正规网赌软件推荐.
