Periodically St. Andrew’s-Sewanee School runs a capital campaign to fund specific bricks and mortar projects and to fund the endowment.
In recent years the school raised $2.2 million to fund a comprehensive renovation of the Chapel and to endow the maintenance of this historic building in perpetuity. In addition, areas of campus physical plant stewardship and security were addressed. Today, St. Andrew’s Chapel stands as a testament to the generosity of its many benefactors.
In 2012, the school completed a $10.3 million campaign to honor the retirement of the Rev. Bill Wade, longtime Head of School. Collectively known as The Wade Initiatives, the campaign included construction of a Wade Hall for the Sciences, an LEED Gold-Certified science building, and endowment for financial aid/scholarship. The maintenance and upkeep of Wade Hall was endowed to ensure its viability for current and future generations of students. Also included in this effort was McCrory Hall for the Performing Arts, renovation of the Agee Library, and additional endowment for the physical plant.
The school is currently in the process of creating a comprehensive campus master plan looking at all facilities, programs and land use. When approved in October 2017, this plan will provide a road map for campus development and funding for decades to come.
