St. John School Annual Fund
Every year, donations from parents and friends of St. John Catholic School help students take advantage of all that SJCS has to offer. The St. John Annual Fund is our annual appeal for contributions from alumni, parents of alumni, grandparents, parents, staff, and friends of St. John Catholic School to help defray the costs of a Catholic education that tuition revenue alone does not cover. Our objective is to:
- Increase alumni participation in SJCS events
- Increase alumni donors
- Increase donor retention rates
Our goal for the 2015-2016 St. John Annual Fund is $50,000.00.*
*Donations to the Annual Fund are unrestricted and are, therefore, used for a variety of needs throughout the school. At St. John Catholic School, the Annual Fund supports curriculum enrichment, extracurricular programs, salaries, student financial assistance, facility improvements and other operating expenses.
Each donation acts as a bridge between the funds generated by tuition and fees, and the actual cost of educating a student.
