Why does St. Pius X have an Annual Fund?
Tuition does not cover the cost of most private schools’ program needs. Therefore, these schools must raise funds over and above tuition to bridge the funding gap. At St. Pius X, tuition covers about 84% of the cost of educating a student. The Annual Fund, the largest and most important fund raising project of the year, is the primary means by which the cost to operate St. Pius X is subsidized. Without the Annual Fund, St. Pius X would have to dramatically raise tuition or undertake steep budget cuts.
