At St. Columba’s Nursery School, we believe that each child, each family, and each staff member has an infinite capacity to learn and grow. We cultivate their God-given and unique abilities in a joyful atmosphere of supported inquiry, sociability, and inclusion.

St. Columba's Nursery School Annual Fund:
The Piggy Bank Campaign
The School's Annual Fund, affectionately known as the Piggy Bank Campaign, enables the school to deliver its mission and welcome children of all backgrounds in a safe, happy environment of learning and growth.
The Piggy Bank Campaign is unique in that it is the only fundraising activity held by the School each year. Therefore, each gift is extremely valuable.
Gifts to the Campaign provide funding for:
Welcoming a diverse community of needs
Purchasing classroom supplies
Providing professional development for faculty and staff
Maintaining our facilities
Maintaining our extensive playground equipment for both the school and community
Our goal is to acheive 100% participation by our current families. Last year, we reached 97% participation. Alongside current parents, we are supported every year by gifts from alumni, teachers, staff, Board members, grandparents, friends, and the church vestry.
