Our entire community comes together each year in support of the Annual Fund. The need is real and every student benefits. Beyond the very important dollars we must raise each and every year, your participation in the Annual Fund reflects the strength of our community, and our shared commitment to our students.
The Annual Fund helps pay for everything from faculty salaries and professional development opportunities to new curricular initiatives, from financial aid to technology maintenance and upgrades, from the electricity needed to keep the lights on to supplies and books. It helps Spence attract and retain a talented and committed faculty and provides support for extracurricular activities, clubs, sports, arts initiatives and other programs. Tuition does not fully cover the cost of educating each student, so every Annual Fund gift matters.
And 266 Annual Fund Class Reps from across all decades
