The Annual Fund is St. Patrick’s top philanthropic priority. The Annual Fund allows the Day School to continue meeting its strategic goals—including enhancing the student experience, maintaining competitive salaries for our talented faculty and staff, and building a diverse and global community. Annual Fund contributions make up 8% of the school’s annual income.
Last year, we achieved 100% faculty and staff participation, and nine out of 10 parents contributed the Annual Fund. More than 60 parents, grandparents, alumni, and parents of alumni volunteer as Annual Fund callers or class representatives every year. The 2016-2017 Annual Fund Chairs are current parents, Melissa and Doug Anderson.
The Annual Fund is a vital part of the Day School community—in terms of fundraising and volunteerism. We kick off the Annual Fund with an annual cocktail party every September. At Green & White Night, the entire adult community comes together to celebrate the start of the school year.
THE 2016-2017 ANNUAL FUND GOALS ARE:
- Raise $1.25 million
- Achieve 100% participation from our current families
✔ Achieve 100% participation from our Board of Trustees
✔ Achieve 100% participation from our faculty and staff
We also strive for strong support from alumni, grandparents, parents of alumni, and friends of St. Patrick’s.
