What is the Annual Fund?
The Annual Fund is St. Edward-Epiphany Catholic School’s yearly appeal to our school community to give generously in support of our students. The goal of the Annual Fund is to support the growth of our school, enhance our curriculum and bridge the gap between tuition and our operating expenses.
The purpose of the Annual Fund is to cover this gap and provide a solution that allows to:
• Keep tuition increases to a minimum
• Continue to enhance the educational environment and academic programs
• Retain a experienced and devoted teaching staff
• Qualify for certain grants from foundations that support Catholic education
Annual Fund contributions are exclusive of fundraising done through the Home and School Association (HSA).
How are Annual Fund dollars used?
Annual Fund dollars are used to support financial aid awards, academic and extracurricular program support and development, competitive faculty salaries and benefits, professional development opportunities and facilities enhancements.
Why should I contribute to the Annual Fund?
Every gift -- no matter the size -- will enable the school to offer better opportunities to our students. The funds allow our school to minimize tuition increases and help to ensure the school’s financial security and continued success.
Who should contribute and how much?
Family circumstances are unique and we understand that means different things at different times. Whether you are a parent, alumni, faculty, staff member or friend of St. Edward-Epiphany Catholic School, the Annual Fund is a significant way to show how much you value the excellent academic and spiritual foundation the school continues to provide. High participation shows how the stakeholders feel about the school and greatly influences outside income sources when we apply for grants. Every gift makes a difference. St. Edward-Epiphany Catholic School truly appreciates every gift received, no matter the size.
