Why I Give
"St. Anne's is committed to transforming lives and building community. In the tradition of Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela, St. Anne's School strives to BE the change we want to see in our world. St. Anne's sees itself as a laboratory for the development of an equitable and just community, where learning to live compassionately and respectfully with others is as important as academic achievement.
The climate of the school's community is the fabric into which all critical and academic challenges are woven. Academic programs that integrate service learning and leadership opportunities through which students learn "that they do not exist apart from society, that society issues are their issues, and they are called to respond to the needs of others," in the words of the National Association of Episcopal Schools. This is just one of the reasons I've made a personal contribution to St. Anne's School and I urge you to contribute as well."
-- The Rt. Rev. Eugene Taylor Sutton, Bishop of Maryland
