2021 ANNUAL FUND
We are so grateful!
The goal of our 2021 Annual Fund is 100% participation from all our families. Thank you to all our donors!! Your gift means more than just dollars and cents. Your gift at any level signifies your belief in the transformative power of St. Pat’s!
Why an Annual Fund?
The Annual Fund is critical because tuition alone does not cover the cost of operating our school. Operating costs will be supplemented through the Annual Fund where donations are tax deductible, unlike tuition. This year in particular, the impact on the school operating budget due to Covid-19 preparations has been significant.
Where does the money go?
Gifts to the Annual Fund provide resources to the school to have funding available to support financial aid, faculty resources and development, academic programs, student activities, athletics, the arts, and the daily operational needs, such as the maintenance of facilities.
Why not just increase tuition?
Keeping tuition at a competitive rate and supplementing operating expenses through charitable gifts provides many important programs and improvements that are essential to fulfilling our mission, while maintaining our small, close-knit community. Gifting to the Annual Fund allows the opportunity for you to receive an income tax donation on any gift to our school.
How much should I give?
Each gift makes a difference to our students, the gift too small is the one not given. Our goal remains, 100% support from our families.
