Funds from Annual Giving bridge the gap between what tuition covers and the actual cost of educating each student. This past year alone, donations to the Annual Giving helped pay for CPR and First Aid training and certification for all faculty and staff, basketball stanchion pads for the upper playground, chapel books, composting supplies for the first grade program, as well as other much needed items. Furthermore, 100% of the Annual Giving contributions go directly to funding the operating expenses and all gifts are tax deductible.
Our goal is 100% participation from our St. Patrick’s families. Your participation confirms to the community, foundations and other potential donors, the dedication of each family to provide a top tier education for their child. The Annual Giving campaign runs from October to May of each year. We hope you will consider making your gift earlier in the year to allow the school access to the funds. Gifts can be made by either returning your Annual Giving envelope to St.Patrick’s main office or by clicking on the Donate Now button.
Many companies have programs that will match the amount given to the St. Patrick’s Day School. This can make your gift go twice as far! Check with your Human Resources Department or the corporate Giving Department to see if they might match your gift. If your employer does not have a matching gift program but makes charitable donations, why not ask them to match your donation!
