Annual Fund

The Castilleja Annual Fund is the cornerstone of the school’s fundraising efforts. Each year, there is a gap between tuition revenue and the actual cost of a Castilleja education that amounts to $14k per student and the Annual Fund provides roughly 10% of the operation revenue. The Annual Fund supports all the things that make the Castilleja education so special—academic and co-curricular programs, faculty compensation and development, athletics and arts. The success of the Annual Fund reflects our community’s commitment to fostering a thriving teaching and learning environment for every student. 

Each year, current parents, alumnae, alumnae parents, trustees, friends, faculty, staff, and grandparents join to raise more than $2M for the Castilleja Annual Fund.
