Support Baylor

Every gift to Baylor makes a major difference - whether the gift is large or small - it signifies your confidence that Baylor is worthy of your support. Your confidence is well placed, and your gifts are much appreciated.


A Guide to Supporting Baylor School


By making a gift each year, alumni, parents, grandparents and friends help keep Baylor at the forefront of independent education. The Baylor Fund (formerly known as the Annual Fund) represents Baylor's commitment to providing the resources needed for an outstanding educational experience. The need for your annual support of Baylor hasn't changed - just the name!


Baylor Backers

The mission of the Baylor Backers is to provide additional financial and program support for the arts and athletic programs at Baylor. Funds raised are directed to “non-budgeted” items that are considered necessary to enhance the student/fan/audience experience. Baylor Backers is not a substitute for The Baylor Fund, as always The Baylor Fund comes first as the highest priority for giving to Baylor.

Capital Gifts

Capital Gifts are larger and generally given over a period of years. Capital gifts support both endowment and capital projects and serve as our "savings account." Capital gifts are vital to the school's ability to maintain it's position in the marketplace by attracting and retaining the highest quality faculty, offering a program which is continually evaluated for its relevance and effectiveness, and providing the funds to attract to students who are appropriate for our mission.

Endowed Funds

The greatest learning institutions are constantly evolving to meet the expectations of their students and faculty. We must continue our commitment to academic excellence by funding merit scholarships, and endowing our teaching faculty. Funding these scholarships will enable us to attract the finest boarding students from around the world, and the faculty endowment will help us put the best teachers in our classrooms.

Planned Gifts

Planned gifts take a longer term view. Planned gifts range from life-income gifts, to bequests, to creative arrangements using retirement-plan benefits. Some people choose to make either anoutright or deferred gift of assets such as stocks, bonds, and property. Making a planned gift may allow you to give more than you ever thought possible and, at the same time, benefit from tax advantages or income for a term of years or life.


We are pleased to take this time to recognize our supporters who graciously embody the spirit of Baylor’s mission to make a positive difference in the world. We are deeply appreciative of their contributions and for the example they’ve established for all members of the Baylor community.
