Gifts to the Annual Fund are an important part of the School’s development program. Annual Giving helps to promote quality instruction, defray the cost of needed renovations and repairs, provide scholarships and financial aid for deserving students, and secure the growth of Devon Prep. Gifts to the Annual Fund may be unrestricted, or may be directed to a specific concern or project including:
Where the Need is Greatest
By allowing your gift to be used where the need is greatest you give Devon Prep the operating funds which allow small class size and a wide selection of Advanced Placement course.
Funds designed for Endowment will help secure the future growth and stability of Devon Prep.
Gifts to the Technology Program will enable Devon Prep to update and enhance the computer laboratory, thus providing our students the ability to keep pace with the fast-breaking developments in technology.
While unrestricted gifts to the Annual Giving Campaign provide Devon Prep with operating funds to help maintain the quality of its academic programs, scholarship gifts enable the school to award scholarship aid to deserving students. Funds earmarked for scholarships will be used to finance full and/or partial scholarships that are awarded yearly for academic achievement.
You can also give or gain a little immortality while making a lasting impact on future generations through the gift of an endowed scholarship in your name or in the name of someone you would like to honor.
The easiest way to make your gift to Devon Prep grow is through matching gifts. Donors (or their spouses) employed by companies with matching gift programs can double or triple their contributions by designating Devon Preparatory School as the recipient of matching gifts.

Devon Prep is eligible to receive corporate gifts through two programs offered by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania: the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program and the Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC) program. Companies that do business and pay corporate taxes in Pennsylvania receive substantial tax credits for donations to Devon Preparatory School’s student financial aid program. The EITC Program and the recently established OSTC Program, which benefits students who reside in underperforming school districts, each provide a wonderful opportunity for Devon Preparatory School and for our corporate donors. Our financial aid program, which provides financial assistance to needy students, is currently funded by individual contributions to the school. Corporate support through the EITC program and the OSTC program provide financial aid funds which allow us to offer access to a private school education to more students, who may otherwise not be able to attend Devon Prep. The process is simple. Visit www.newpa.com for more information on these programs or contact the Development Office for more information.
