Annual Fund

Opening Up a World of Learning for Students

Your Annual Fund gift impacts our students in so many ways. It supports the faculty who prime our students for success, the coaches who demonstrate how to lead, and the mentors who help establish inspiring opportunities. Your philanthropy helps bring the entire hilltop community together.

Why I Give

“Many friendly faces from my first day at Canterbury remain my dearest friends. The lessons learned in the classroom, athletic fields, and chapel continue to provide guidance and direction in challenging situations far removed from the grounds of Canterbury. I support the Annual Fund to give back to a community that continues to enrich my life well beyond what I could have imagined as an apprehensive teenager on her first day in a new school.”

Our most essential funding source, the Canterbury Annual Fund is the foundation of everything we do:

Each department and office on campus receives a portion for their operating budget.

The fund provides critical resources for programs and initiatives that benefit the School.

Your generosity offers flexibility to take advantage of emerging opportunities, meet new challenges, and help students realize their dream of attending Canterbury.

As parents of a graduated Saint, we gladly contribute to the Canterbury Annual Fund because we know how much the Canterbury experience meant and continues to be valued by our daughter. By donating annually, we hope others can be afforded the same opportunities. There is no greater return on our investment than to watch fellow Saints grow and prosper.
