What is the Annual Fund?
The Annual Fund is the School’s annual giving campaign organized to generate contributions from the school community for our general operating budget. Tuition alone does not cover the actual cost of education at St. Cornelius Catholic School. In fact, it only covers about 70%, with the remainder coming primarily from the Annual Fund and other gifts.
How can you lend a hand to the success of the Annual Fund?
- Make a commitment to keep St. Cornelius in your prayers.
- Offer your financial support to the Annual Fund each year.
Why is my contribution to the Annual Fund important?
A gift to the Annual Fund is the single most important gift you can make to the School each year. As with most independent schools, we depend on the partnership of the school community to help make that all-important difference between tuition income and the actual cost of a St. Cornelius education.
How much should I give?
Making a meaningful gift to the Annual Fund is one of the most important ways you can express your support for our school and your belief in our mission. The gift you give is highly personal and depends on your family’s individual circumstances.
What are some specific things the Annual Fund has made possible?
A Successful Annual Fund will enable Our School to:
Student programs including drug and alcohol awareness and motivational speakers, books and periodicals, all our faculty development activities including seminars, training, workshops and professional education opportunities and much of our campus security.
- Update technology and curriculum
- Beautify the school campus
- Improve textbooks
- Fund enrichment programs
