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. Currently this amount is over $2,000.  We ask that you make your support of this effort your first priority after tuition.  You will receive a request to contribute in the Fall.  Payments on Annual Fund pledges are due by May 31 of each year.  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 an opportunity to join in fellowship, spiritual growth, faculty appreciation, and service to the community.  The St. Pius X Mothers' Club also has annual fundraising opportunities from the ever-popular Holiday Marketplace to the very helpful Used Uniform Sale.  Proceeds from Mothers' Club fundraisers are used to contribute to the scholarship programs, students in need, and other endowment projects.
