Fund-A-Vision & Spirit of San Damiano Award

For the benefit of all current and future St. Francis Troubadours, and to honor Monsignor Kidder, this year’s Fund-a-Vision supports an effort that is near and dear to Monsignor’s heart: ensuring a St. Francis education is accessible to all who desire a Catholic education based on faith, excellence, leadership and service. 

Need-based tuition assistance perpetuates our distinguished history of providing support for students from middle and lower-income families. As Monisgnor Kidder models, a St. Francis education is too important and too valuable not to be accessible to all who desire it.

Giving to this year’s Fund-a-Vision means you are empowering the next generation of smart leaders, creative thinkers and global citizens. Every gift has a direct impact on our students, empowering them with the tools they need to become the leaders and givers of tomorrow. On behalf of today’s 1,080 Troubies and yesterday’s 11,000-plus alumnae, help us continue the legacy of St. Francis. Learn more and support here

Revelry 2019 Recap

Paris in Bloom Transformed our Campus and Hearts

As we start to catch our breath after our 13th Annual Revelry Gala & Auction, Paris in Bloom, we find ourselves missing the excitement, beauty and magic of a spectacular evening. It is no wonder Revelry is the school’s premier event!

Our guests grabbed their passports and packed their bags as they were transported to a Parisian neighborhood complete with cobbled passages, quintessential Parisian shops and tree-lined avenues. Wherever you looked, Paris was truly in Bloom (with a few raindrops to help it along)!

The ambiance and magic of the evening was a result of the vision and leadership of our two amazing Revelry co-chairs, Lisa Breslau (Sophia ’20 and Sara ’21) and Kristin Stassi Venegas ’83 (Juliana ’20). They led an executive team comprised of both long-serving and new members who headed up the many areas that needed to come together for a great event. We can’t thank this team enough for the heart, soul and hard work they put into making this event so very engaging and successful. Thank you to the hundreds of parent volunteers who supported this team and helped make the magic happen. Nothing on campus would happen without the teamwork of our dedicated Faculty and Staff, from advancement, to facilities, arts, finance and all of our departments were all-in to raise support for our Troubies.

Guests were welcomed by St. Francis student ambassadors, entertained by our Show Choir and SF Players, who appeared as Mimes and French ladies, before Miss Clavel and her little girls in two straight lines led them through the Arc de Triomphe to see a beautiful dining room laid out for them, complete with an Eiffel Tower. And instead of dining and dashing, many stayed late to enjoy our soirée post-fête with libations and dancing! It was a perfect end to an amazing evening.

Two remarkable women were honored with the Spirit of San Damiano award—St. Francis’s first President, Marion Bishop, and alumna from the class of 1948, Marion Slakey. Both women received standing ovations recognizing their love, loyalty and service to St. Francis and our Troubadours.

The 2019 Revelry Fund-A-Vision raised a substantial amount for the St. Francis Endowed Scholarship fund. With the generous support of a $30,000 lead donor, nearly $100,000 was raised in the room and then generously matched by an attendee. The success of this year’s fund-a-vision helps us fulfill our mission by providing the financial assistance that ensures a St. Francis education is accessible to all who desire a holistic education based on faith, excellence, leadership and service.

Because of the generosity and support of more than 450 Revelry guests and supporters, we raised more than $500,000 for today’s and tomorrow’s Troubies. Thank you to the entire St. Francis community for giving so generously.
