WAYS of GIVING
Thank you for your interest in making a donation to St. Cyprian’s Episcopal School. SCES’s independence from local, state and federal governments provides unparalleled opportunities to develop challenging, innovative, and creative educational programs. That independence, however, makes SCES’s completely dependent on tuition income and other revenue sources (annual giving, major fundraisers, endowment earnings) to support the faculty and the broad range of programs we offer. We appreciate all levels of support and contributions to the school.
- Annual Fund Gifts are normally given in the fall in the form of a one-time payment or several payments throughout the school year. Annual fund donations go toward the general needs of the school.
- Endowments are a way to make a permanent gift to St. Cyprian’s School. Contributions can be made to scholarships, the John Caskey Dyslexia Endowment, program support, faculty support and facilities support.
- Restricted Gifts are earmarked for specific purchases from the operating account.
- Gifts may be given to provide assistance for current students or to provide future scholarships funding.
- Gifts Of Remembrance are unique way to remember a loved one, teacher, mentor or child on a special occasion. Honorariums or memorial gifts may be designed to benefit a special program.
The following programs are designed to give a percentage of purchases back to the school:
- Amazon Smile – Designate St. Cyprian’s Episcopal School as your school of choice on your Amazon account.

Annual Auction & Dinner
This is the largest school fundraiser of the year. This is a huge dinner and auction that we encourage participation in by all of our all families. Each class provides an item to be auctioned in addition to the many items and services donated by businesses and families in our community. Many volunteers are needed to help with the planning, soliciting and decorating for this fun and exciting St. Cyprian’s legendary event known as Bayou Bash!
SCES Guild is our Parent Teacher Organization. SCES’s Guild strives to enhance the overall educational atmosphere of our school. Through this organization, parents actively volunteer their time and talents to enrich the school and its programs. Our SCES Guild volunteers help out in a variety of ways, from assisting teachers with office duties to providing occasional meals for our faculty and staff. Additionally, SCES Guild works to raise much-needed funds for the school. Funds raised by SCES Guild have provided the school with new cafeteria tables, picnic tables and classroom funds for teachers.
