Each fall, we launch the Annual Fund, an appeal to the entire O’Neal community for financial support that offsets the School’s annual operating budget. The Annual Fund is made up of unrestricted gifts that go to work immediately by providing funds for faculty salaries and professional development, financial aid, facility upkeep and renewal, and for programmatic needs such as athletic uniforms, musical props, art supplies, and teaching supplies. Additionally, the Annual Fund has supported the additional costs due to COVID-19. While tuition covers most of the cost of an O’Neal education, the Annual Fund plays an important role in making up the difference.
Thanks to the generosity of O’Neal parents, alumni, faculty,
staff, the Board of Trustees, parents of alumni, grandparents, and friends, last years’ Annual Fund raised $160,092, exceeding our budgeted goal. The 2020-21 Annual Fund begins in the fall of 2020 and closes on June 30, 2021. Gifts must be received by June 30, 2021, to be counted towards the 2020-21 Annual Fund. To get involved, or for further information, please contact Katie Novak at 910-692-6920 x113.
