Blue & Gold Fund
Shady Side Academy's Blue & Gold Fund, also known as the annual fund, supports the highest needs of the Academy by providing necessary and critical resources for the annual operating budget.
Our superb faculty, innovative programs, caring community and remarkable range of opportunities in athletics and the arts would not be possible without the generous support of our alumni, parents, faculty and grandparents.
Your Participation Matters!
The Blue & Gold Fund succeeds only as a collective effort; every gift, regardless of size, makes a tangible difference. Even a small increase in the percent of participation or the size of an average gift can have a big impact on our success. In addition, outside funding sources look closely at our alumni and parent participation when reviewing our grant proposals.
