Thanks to you, we are able to deliver an exceptional educational experience to the girls and boys who call St. Patrick's their school-home.
The Annual Fund is St. Patrick’s top philanthropic priority, allowing the Day School to continue meeting its strategic goals—including enhancing and enriching the student experience, maintaining competitive salaries for our talented faculty and staff, and building a diverse and global community. Annual Fund contributions provide the second-largest revenue stream for the operating budget, after tuition. They help bridge the gap between tuition and the actual cost of a St. Patrick's education.
For the past five years, we have achieved 100% Board of Trustees participation, 100% faculty and staff participation, and over 85% current-parent participation in the Annual Fund. Grandparents, alumni, parents of alumni, and friends also join together to support the Annual Fund by giving generously and volunteering. The 2021-2022 Annual Fund Chairs are current parents, Harv Lester and Don McMinn. They are supported by this year's Vice-Chairs, Tiffany and Duane King, and a wonderful group of parent volunteers who make up the Annual Fund Leadership Council.
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. We have been unable to host this party for the past couple of years due to the pandemic, but we look forward to continuing on with this tradition once circumstances allow.
Every gift, no matter the size, makes a difference.
