Thanks to you, we are able to deliver an exceptional educational experience to the students 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 full cost of a St. Patrick's education.
For the past eight 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 2023-2024 Annual Fund Chairs are current parents, Marie Lee and Minjae Song. They are supported by this year's Vice-Chair, John Barabino, 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, Green & White Night, where 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 Annual Giving Kyle Tyson at 202-342-7012 or by email at TysonK@stpatsdc.org.
