St. Francis Fund


The St. Francis Fund

The St. Francis Fund is the cornerstone of the school’s fundraising efforts. Each year, there is a gap between tuition revenue and the actual cost of a St. Francis education, that amounts to $2,000 per student. The Annual Fund supports all the things that make the St. Francis experience so special—academic and co-curricular programs, athletics and the arts, faith experiences, and faculty compensation. The success of the St. Francis Fund reflects our community’s commitment to fostering a thriving learning environment for every student.

Each year, current parents, alumnae, alumnae parents, trustees, grandparents, friends, faculty and staff join to raise more than $1M for the St. Francis Annual Fund. We gratefully accept 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 a tax-deductible donation to the school, a not for profit entity. Advancement fundraising operates on a fiscal year basis (July 1- June 30), and the office produces an Annual Report of donors each fall. Supporters surpassing $2,000 in annual donations are invited to the President’s Society Cocktail Reception in the Fall.



Thankful Thursday
Annual Day of Giving

St. Francis High School holds an annual day of giving, where supporters are asked to show their gratitude with a gift made on Thankful Thursday. Our 12th annual Day of Giving will be held on November 2, 2023.

This one-day of giving engages more than 1,000 supporters and raises a significant amount for financial aid. Without your support, nearly 24% of our Troubies would not be able to attend St. Francis. 

Help us reach our goal of raising $225,000.
