Giving



With the support and generosity of our families, faculty, staff, church members and friends of Cross Schools, we are able to fulfill our mission of providing an education in the Anglican tradition of academic excellence, fostering respect for self and others, service to community and a commitment to know, love and follow Jesus Christ. There are many ways to give to Cross Schools. They include our Annual Giving Campaign, Endowment, Volunteering, and/or donating goods and services to our various fund raising events.


For further information or to make a gift, please contact Brittany Tarleton, Director of Development at b.tarleton@crossschools.org or 843.706.2000.


Annual Fund

Like most independent schools, we rely on our Annual Giving Campaign to meet the difference between tuition and the school's operating expenses. Your unrestricted, tax-deductible gift allows the school, for example, to increase teachers' salaries, provide technology purchases, and cover other operating expenses. Each and every gift makes a difference to Cross Schools!



Levels of Engagement are:


Trustee Circle$5000 and over
Headmaster Circle$2500-4999
Royal and Crimson Circle$1000-2499
1998 Club$500-999
CS Friend$100-499
CS Supporter$1-99


Your participation is greatly appreciated. Please help sustain Cross Schools in developing the children's spiritual and academic growth with your gift.



Endowment Fund

This fund provides a solid foundation for life long growth and the achievement of Cross Schools. It will secure our place in history and support the school eternally. Your donations and gifts will exist infinitely because the principal is never invaded and only the interest is used to provide, for example, scholarships to students that otherwise may not be able to afford a Christian education or allow the school to respond to changes in technology. The first 100 donors of $1000 or more, will be recognized as the Founders Circle of Cross Schools. Please consider investing in our future!



Cross Schools Legacy League

The Cross Schools' Legacy League is an association of members who have included Cross Schools in their estate planning. This could include, for example, gifts, insurance, or trusts.



Sponsorship/Volunteer Opportunities

There are many areas Cross Schools could utilize your talents! Our major fundraisers are:


  1. Our Fall event, Pearls to Pluff Mud Lowcountry Dinner and Silent Auction
  2. The DeDe Owens Memorial Golf Event.
  3. Family Fun Night.
  4. Fun Run.

If you are interested in attending, volunteering, or sponsoring one of these events, please contact Brittany Tarleton.
