The Annual Fund is St. Patrick’s top philanthropic priority, allowing 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 7% of the school’s annual income, directly supporting the operating budget.
Last year, we achieved 100% faculty and staff and Trustee participation, and nearly nine out of 10 parents contributed the Annual Fund. Parents, grandparents, alumni, and parents of alumni join together to support the Annual Fund by giving generously and volunteering. The 2018-2019 Annual Fund Chairs are current parents, Matt Alion and Matt Blocher.
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.
Our fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30. For more information on the Annual Fund, please contact Director of the Annual Fund Megan Maturo at 202-342-7010 or by email at MaturoM@stpatsdc.org. Information on giving securities or wiring a donation can be found here.
