The Annual Fund
The tuition and fees charged at Incarnate Word Academy do not cover the actual cost to educate our students. This leaves a significant tuition gap per student. If tuition were increased to the level that covers the actual cost to educate our students each year, the resulting increase would create a financial hardship for most families.
This is why the Annual Fund is so important.
The Annual Fund bridges the gap between tuition revenues and the actual cost of educating our students. Your gift to the Annual Fund enriches the academic and athletic experience for every student and faculty member on campus.
- Keep IWA accessible to students in our community.
- Invest in the exceptional, college preparatory academic and athletic programming and equipment necessary to continue IWA's 148-year tradition of developing exceptional scholars and athletes.
- Sustain and enhance our campus, making necessary upgrades for energy efficiency and evolving safety standards.
- Invest in the latest classroom technology and equipment to ensure that students and faculty have the tools they need to soar.
We are deeply grateful for your support!
Unrestricted gifts to the Annual Fund reinforce the cornerstone of philanthropy while bridging the gap between tuition and the cost of providing a distinguished education. To be included in this year’s Annual Fund, be sure to make your gift prior to June 30th, the end of our fiscal year.
