An independent day school serving grades K-12 | St. Paul, MN


SPA remains an exceptional school that lives its mission to shape the minds and the hearts of the people who will change the world. One of the ways alumni/ae can support the mission of the school is by giving to the Annual Fund. Your contribution and those from fellow alumni/ae have the power to change a student’s life. Gifts help provide those experiences that are not covered by tuition. In fact, you can designate your gift to a specific target of interest: financial aid/scholarships; student programs; faculty support; or areas of greatest need. Your gift can support what was most meaningful for you at SPA — to benefit others like you. 

Giving is easy and your donation is tax deductible. The Spartan Gold Club is SPA’s recognition program for young alumni/ae that graduated in the last 15 years (2007-2022) and have given to the SPA Annual Fund. We hope all alumni/ae will consider helping SPA build on that success with a gift every year. Be sure to mark your calendars for these special SPA alumni/ae philanthropy events listed below.
