Ways to Give

Tuition does not cover all the costs of educating a student at Saint Joseph Elementary School. As a result, support from our community is vital to our success. Saint Joseph Elementary School greatly appreciates your financial support. Gifts to the school may be made in a variety of ways: a gift of cash, by check or credit card, company matching gifts or through a bequest or charitable lead trust, to name only a few. The Development Staff is pleased to work with you in structuring gift opportunities that ensure your philanthropic goals are met while best supporting the needs of the school.

Annual Fund Raising Opportunities and Events

Annual Fund

The Annual Fund is our yearly fundraising effort that provides unrestricted gifts to the operating budget of the St. Joseph Elementary School. 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. For information about making a donation to the school's Annual Fund, please contact the school office at (510) 995-9415.


Please consider making a donation to Saint Joseph Elementary Sisters of Notre Dame Endowment fund. An endowment donation invests in the history and longevity of St. Joseph.

Family and friends can establish an annual scholarship in memory of a loved one to honor their many achievements and/or their community service work. A gift to the school in memory or honor of an individual helps perpetuate the values of a loved one’s life. Gifts may honor a person during his or her lifetime, or when that person has passed.

Please contact Carla VanDerveer for more information on how to leave a legacy for years to come. (cvanderveer@csdo.org or 510 995-9415)
