Annual Fund

What is the Annual Fund?

The Annual Fund is our yearly fundraising effort that provides unrestricted gifts to the operating budget of the St. Joseph Elementary School. Tuition only covers 90% of the cost to educate a child of St. Joseph. Your support is essential to the school’s success in providing an outstanding academic program, attracting and retaining dedicated faculty members, supporting students financially and maintaining our facilities.

How can you lend a hand to the success of the Annual Fund?

  • Offer your financial support to the Annual Fund each year.
  • Make a commitment to keep Saint Joseph Elementary School in your prayers.

Why is my contribution to the Annual Fund important?

A gift to the Annual Fund is the single most important gift you can make to the School each year. As with most independent schools, we depend on the partnership of the school community to help make that all-important difference between tuition income and the actual cost of a Saint Joseph Elementary School education.

How much should I give?

Every person's financial situation is different, so please make a gift that makes you comfortable. Some people make monthly contributions; others make one large gift to the school. Every contribution helps! Please consider donating today.
