The Annual Fund is the Day School’s first philanthropic priority. Because tuition only covers 88% of the cost of a St. Patrick’s education, we rely on donors to help meet our ongoing academic and co-curricular programming costs by supplementing the operating budget.
Unrestricted gifts to the Annual Fund allow the Day School to continue meeting its strategic goals—including continuing to enhance the student experience, maintain competitive salaries for our talented faculty and staff, and build a diverse and global community—while also providing a potential tax benefit for donors.
We invite all St. Patrick’s families to contribute according to their capability. Donors with financial capacity are encouraged to make leadership gifts. Each and every gift, regardless of size, is received gratefully and truly makes a difference in the life of this special place.
