We are excited to kick off the “Race to 100,” our 2022-2023 Annual Fund Campaign!
WHAT IS RACE TO 100?
Race to 100 is a competition among each grade level, in support of the SEES 2022-2023 Annual Fund. Each grade level will compete as one team.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Each grade will work together to “fill” 100 “envelopes” posted on their grade-specific site listed below. The number on the envelope is equal to the dollar value. Example: if you are making a gift of $25, add the #25 envelope to your cart. Making a gift of $60? Add the #10 envelope and the #50 envelope to your cart.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN OUR GRADE HAS FILLED ALL OUR ENVELOPES?
Congratulations! The order in which grades finish will determine the shopping order for our Secret Santa event. Example: 3rd grade finishes first, they are the first to shop. 7th grade finishes second, they are second to shop. Each class will also receive a Tag Day and class party, including a treat and extra recess!
WHAT IS THE ANNUAL FUND?
SEES is proud to offer the lowest tuition for Catholic education in our entire Diocese and beyond. The tuition we collect from families covers roughly 89% of our total operating budget (faculty, facilities, curriculum). The 11% gap is closed with parish/diocesan subsidies and fundraising. Along with School/HSA events, the Annual Fund is a mission-critical part of our fundraising platform and is what allows us to maintain the lowest tuition possible.
Thank you so much for all that you do to make SEES such an amazing place!
