ST. PIUS X FUNDRAISING PROGRAMS

Annual Fund

Each year St. Pius X conducts the Annual Fund campaign—the largest and most important fundraising project of the year—for which the entire school community is solicited for unrestricted gifts to the school.  All monies raised through the Annual Fund are tax deductible and are devoted entirely towards filling the gap between the cost of tuition and the actual cost to educate each student. We ask that you make your support of this effort your first priority after tuition.  The Annual Fund solicitation letter will be sent in September. Payments on Annual Fund pledges are due by May 31, 2016. Pledges and gifts can be made through checks, your FACTS account or online at www.spx.org/supportspx.  Due to the critical nature of this effort, we seek 100 percent parent participation—all parents are expected to contribute some amount. This means there are no insignificant gifts; all donations have both financial and symbolic importance. It is your act of giving that counts.

 

Athletic Association

The St. Pius X Athletic Association provides supplemental financial and volunteer support for our athletic programs. The association has membership fees and also sponsors a golf tournament, the Christmas basketball tournament, athletic physicals, and seasonal Coke product sales. General athletic ads and athletic program sponsorships are solicited as well.

 

St. Pius Arts Society (SPAS)

SPAS provides supplemental financial and volunteer support for the fine arts department and funds scholarship awards. SPAS has membership fees and sponsors one fundraiser each year.

 

Mothers’ Club

The St. Pius X Mothers’ Club provides volunteer support and funds scholarships, tuition assistance and other special student, family and faculty needs. The Mothers’ Club has membership fees and also sponsors the Marketplace Craft Fair.
