Auction to Benefit Financial Aid
More than one in four St. Patrick’s students receive direct financial aid, but the program benefits 100% of our children by enabling talented students who couldn’t otherwise attend St. Patrick’s to become part of this special community. For more than four decades, the Auction to Benefit Financial Aid has supported a socioeconomically diverse student body by providing as much as one-third of the annual financial aid budget. Every year, we are dazzled by the imagination, creativity, generosity, and abundance that our community invests in the Financial Aid Program that is critical to the quality of the education our students receive.
At the annual Auction to Benefit Financial Aid, there is an opportunity to donate directly to the bottom line by raising your paddle for “Fund-A-Scholar.” This lively and inspiring portion of the Live Auction ensures that the entirety of your gift will go directly to benefit the Financial Aid program. In 2018, the Fund-A-Scholar portion of the Grand Prix-themed evening broke records, raising more than $320,000.
We are so grateful to the community for the strong support of the Auction to Benefit the Financial Aid Program.
