Annual Fund

Supporting Springer's Annual Fund directly impacts our greatest need - financial aid.

Last year we were also able to provide workshops and programs to 716 children, parents and professionals through our center.

SGO Scholarships

At Springer, we are part of a unique initiative that enables donors in Ohio to benefit from a tax credit matching their contribution, dollar-for-dollar, when they donate through the Ohio Association of Independent Schools. This esteemed organization is acknowledged by the state of Ohio as a certified Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO).

When you choose to donate through an SGO, your contribution is allocated towards need-based scholarships, helping students to access quality education. For Ohio residents, this opportunity comes with the advantage of receiving a tax credit of up to $750 for individuals or up to $1,500 for couples filing a joint return. The process of giving online is straightforward and convenient.
