Giving Opportunities

IMG_5304 (2)Since its founding in 1956, Devon Preparatory School has continued to grow, and its strength today is a tribute to all who have supported Devon Prep over the years. Your financial support for Devon’s immediate, short-term and future needs is essential. There are many giving opportunities and the Development Office can assist in tailoring a giving plan to meet your individual giving objectives.

Annual Giving

Gifts to the Devon Prep Annual Fund are the cornerstone of the School’s development program, providing the resources beyond tuition needed to cover the full cost of education. The Annual Fund is a significant part of the school’s operating budget and contributions are put to work immediately, used in the year that they are received to fund current needs. Annual Giving provides our donors with the opportunity to support the Devon experience–it 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. Donate to the Annual Fund.

Capital Giving

Capital gifts support long term strategic priorities for the future of the school. From time to time, Devon Prep conducts a capital campaign to secure funding to achieve major strategic objectives. Gifts to a capital campaign are generally larger pledges, usually made over a three- to five-year period, that fund long-term projects such as new construction, renovations or endowment.  We are currently conducting The Campaign for Devon Prep…Proud of our Past…Focused on our Future to complete the much needed renovation of our aging classroom building, fund needed infrastructure improvements and strengthen our financial position. During a capital campaign we rely on the Devon Prep community’s support of the campaign in addition to their support of the Annual Fund.  Donate to the Capital Campaign.

Endowment Giving

Funds designated for Endowment will help secure the future growth and stability of Devon Prep, and with an endowment gift, you can invest in that future. You may wish to make a gift to the General Endowment Fund or you may choose to give or gain a little immortality while making a lasting impact on future generations through the gift of an endowed scholarship or financial aid fund in your name or in the name of someone you would like to honor. Please contact the Development Office if you would like to discuss endowment giving options.

EITC (Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program)
OSTC (Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit Program)

Did you know that you can redirect your PA tax dollars to Devon Prep? 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. The EITC Program and the 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.

The Devon Prep Parents’ Association and the Devon Prep Alumni Association each host events, programs and activities throughout the year. Your support of these events as a donor, a volunteer or a participant provides an opportunity to share in the vibrant Devon Prep community spirit as well as helping to raise funds for the needs of the school.
