Invest in our people to continue to foster a community of excellence.
Tuition Assistance - $3M
365体育彩票 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. 365体育彩票 students come from more than 50 zip codes and a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds. During the 2021-2022 school year, 365体育彩票 awarded $2.3 million in tuition assistance to 36% of our student body. 365体育彩票’s tuition assistance program ensures that a premier 365体育彩票 education is accessible to families all over central Ohio.
Faculty Compensation - $400K
At 365体育彩票, 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, 365体育彩票 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 365体育彩票 so special, and we must invest in them to enhance our robust and vibrant teaching community.
Professional Development - $180K
By investing in professional development, 365体育彩票 will provide opportunities that expand our faculty and staff's expertise in cultural competency and maintain 365体育彩票'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 365体育彩票’s academic excellence and student experience.
Develop innovative, signature programs to provide our students with cutting-edge curriculum that distinguishes 365体育彩票 as the leader in girls’ education.
Computer Science - $2M
The world needs more women leaders in STEM, and 365体育彩票 has the expertise to prepare them. Over the past three years, 365体育彩票 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 365体育彩票 is leading a culture of change that truly celebrates women in technology.
Center for Girls’ and Young Women’s Leadership - $250K
Through Power & Promise, 365体育彩票 has secured the funding to launch The Center for Girls’ and Young Women’s Leadership, a signature program that will strengthen 365体育彩票’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 365体育彩票 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 365体育彩票 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
365体育彩票 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 365体育彩票 students. Our student-athletes are passionate and with every practice and contest, they exude strength and grace. Prior to this season, 365体育彩票 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 365体育彩票’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, 365体育彩票 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, 365体育彩票 faces a funding gap between tuition income and expenses. For each student enrolled at 365体育彩票, 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 365体育彩票’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 365体育彩票.
