St. Paul's Academy in Bellingham, WA

Bellingham's Pre-K to 12 College Preparatory Academy



Donating to St. Paul’s Academy makes a difference in the lives of each child, every day.

How to Give

Building an outstanding local independent school is possible only with the generous support of community members like you.

St. Paul's Academy provides promising young people with exceptional opportunities to learn, to grow, and to lead. Here they find challenges to engage their talents, and teachers who have time to inspire and guide them. They mature as individuals and as members of a close community. They are urged to pursue lives of significance.

Our school is growing every day. As our community becomes larger and more complex so do our needs.

Why Give

A tradition of support from alumni, parents, and friends helps ensure that students continue their growth into positions of community leadership. If you ask, "Why should I give?", the reasons are many:

  1. Attract Top Educators

    A great school is built one superb teacher at a time. Gifts to the school enable us to continue improving our compensation program, and attract and retain proven, outstanding educators.

  2. Attract Eager Students from Diverse Backgrounds

    We aim to pair excellent teachers with bright students in the community. Need-blind admission is a critical goal for us, and we need your support to achieve it.

  3. Enduring Legacy of Local Excellence

    Your gift ensures that we can continue developing a high quality independent school that will serve current and future generations in Northwest Washington.

Please Give Generously to Our Annual Fund

The Annual Fund

Gifts made to the Annual Fund are unrestricted. They constitute a flexible resource that allows St. Paul's Academy to meet operational needs as they emerge during the year, and to help the Academy support its strategic plan and mission. All gifts, whether large or small, benefit and sustain the vitality of our school. Tuition at St. Paul’s covers approximately 73% of the total cost of educating a student: the balance is made up through contributions from donors like you.


St. Paul's Academy relies heavily on the time and energy of its many generous volunteers. The school is fortunate that parents and students alike consider volunteering an important part of the St. Paul's experience. Volunteers help lower our operational costs and help keep tuition affordable.

The main avenue for volunteering is through the parents' group called PALS (Parents Actively Lending Support). Please see the calendar for a list of upcoming volunteer activities and events.

The annual Salute Gala and Wine Auction also needs volunteers October through January to assist with that event.

Annual Auction

This year, the Saluté Auction will be bigger and better than ever!  On January 25, 2014, we will present the auction at the Silver Reef Hotel Casino Spa

The majority of the proceeds will fund the school's general operating budget. This will ensure that SPA can continue to offer superior programs and quality education to each of its students at an affordable cost.

Proceeds from the Dessert Dash will help fund international travel adventures this Spring.

We would like to sincerely thank our generous sponsors, auction guests, donors and volunteers who all make this event possible!

Hope to see you next year! Saluté!

Opportunities for giving include silent auction and live auction items, sponsorships and underwriting.  Call Heather Carter for more information at 360-733-1750, x1202, or email
