Because tuition alone does not cover the cost of educating a student, funds raised through the annual St. Francis Fund appeal ensures the operational welfare of the school, including providing much-needed tuition assistance and important curricular, spiritual, artistic, and athletic offerings. St. Francis High School strives to offer state-of-the-art educational programs and learning tools in an environment that encourages each Troubadour's faith journey. We are only able to do so through the generosity of parents who support the school beyond tuition, our alumnae community and other generous donors.
All are invited to partner in this important mission by donating to St. Francis Catholic High School. St. Francis gratefully accepts checks, cash, and online donations. We also offer charitable investing opportunities, planned gifts, vehicle donations and/or donations of stocks and securities. All gifts are appreciated and acknowledged as a tax-deductible donation to the school, a not for profit entity. Advancement fundraising operates on a fiscal year basis, and the office produces an Annual Report of donors in a special edition of the Pax et Bonum Magazine. Supporters surpassing $1,000 in annual donations are recognized as "Benefactors" and are invited to the President's Society Cocktail Reception in the Fall.
The office manages the St. Francis Fund (our annual fund), Thankful Thursday (our Day of Giving), fundraising events including the Crab Feed and Revelry Gala and Auction, scholarship outreach, planned giving and capital campaigns. The Advancement office ensures that donations are appropriately acknowledged and administrated consistent with donors’ intended purposes.
