Fellow Baylor Parents,
When we agreed to co-chair this year's Annual Fund we began thinking more deeply about what it means to be stewards of this remarkable community.
By definition, stewardship means to protect something considered worth caring for and preserving. When applied to the Annual Fund, what could be more important than providing the very best for our children while they are here and preserving all that is good about Baylor for future students?
At a personal level, we all have recent graduates attending college this fall. When we said our (yes, tearful) good-byes, we did so with pride and utter confidence that they are ready for the new challenges that lie ahead. We were able to do so because of how well they were prepared at Baylor.
We often hear other parents comment that Baylor just keeps getting better and better, and we join them in knowing how blessed our children are to have such a banquet of opportunities. We encourage you to make a gift to the Annual Fund to show that you appreciate what Baylor will do for your child this year, and to contribute to the continuous cycle of improvement that is imperative to great schools like ours.
A donation of any amount will make a significant difference. We only ask that you give from your heart and that you give to the best of your ability. Thank you for your consideration of this important fund-raising effort!
- Karen and Cody Sims (parents of Lauren '12, Sarah '17, and Connor '14)
- Susan Crimmins (parent of Will '12 and Elizabeth '14 )

Paying tuition is already a lot for us, why would my donation even matter?
No matter how small a gift is, it's important. Your contribution to the Annual Fund as a parent represents a decision. A decision that you know that the cost of a quality education goes beyond the price of tuition, uniforms, and books. The Annual Fund helps make the difference in making Baylor one of the best independent schools in the country .The Annual Fund is the perfect place to put gifts of all sizes to work by pooling them during the fiscal year, and seeing your child benefit.
