The St. Pius X Annual Fund was established in 1988 to encourage and recognize the loyalty and support of alumni, parents, parents of alumni, grandparents and friends of St. Pius X. Annual Fund gifts relieve the burden on tuition (which accounts for approximately 85 percent of the yearly expenses for each student) and assist with the daily needs of St. Pius X.

Our goal for the 2014-2015 Annual Fund is to increase participation levels in all of our constituent groups and to raise $750,000, which will be used in its entirety to help cover the difference between the tuition per student and the actual cost to educate each student, which stands right around $1,600 per student.

We have split the total goal into four sections, and are asking for our current parents to pull together to raise $480,000, our alumni to raise $125,000, our parents of alumni to raise $110,000, and our grandparents to raise $35,000 in donations. The financial support we receive will help our community achieve our objective and allow us to keep the high standards of a St. Pius X education.

As St. Pius X improved the stadium and cafeteria in 2004, we felt a pressing need to expand in other directions and determined that practice fields, a baseball field, and parking facilities would have the most positive impact on our campus. In 2006 friends of St. Pius X signed a purchase option on the land adjacent to the school, and in 2008 the school closed on the land.  In 2009, in an effort to raise money for the property and new facility construction, St. Pius X launched the Expanding Our Legacy Capital Campaign that has since grown into the Fields of Dreams initiative. 

Today, through the overwhelming generosity of the community, the campaign is nearing its goal of $8 million, with only $2.2 million remaining. Our fundraising efforts have triumphed in the face of one of the worst economic downturns in the nation’s history. Now, thanks for our work together, our athletes can enjoy training and playing, and our parents and fans can cheer the Golden Lions to victory on beautiful, state-of-the-art fields.

Though the construction of the fields is complete; the balance due remains. We need you to Help Us Get Home!

There are three general types of scholarships at St. Pius X: endowed scholarships, funded scholarships, and the Memorial scholarship.
 
Endowed scholarships are established with a minimum gift of $20,000 to St. Pius X. Named after the donor's designee, these endowed gifts are held in perpetuity while the interest on the corpus provides for student scholarships. Funded scholarships are funded by the various parent organizations at St. Pius X or other individuals. Award monies are provided directly from the organizations or individuals that are responsible for these scholarships. The Memorial Scholarship is a pool of funds endowed by gifts from various donors to memorialize a deceased individual. When a loved one passes away, families may ask that donations be made to the St. Pius X Memorial Fund in memory of the deceased. For any accumulated amount of $1,000 or more in the name of a memorialized individual, a nameplate is placed on the Memorial Scholarship plaque in the Young Center Lobby.

All St. Pius X scholarships are awarded based on need, and are awarded by the scholarship committee based on the nomination of St. Pius X faculty (for current SPX students) and elementary school personnel (for incoming freshmen).

Gifts may be directed to specific school programs. Program wish lists are prepared by department heads, coaches, and moderators to provide prospective donors with school program needs. If you desire to make a donation for or towards one of the wish list items, send the donation to the development office, clearly indicating the program and item for which the donation is made. The donation will be used only for the indicated program and item specified by the donor. Donations made to specific programs for unspecified purposes are to be used by that program for wish list items first. If wish list items are exhausted, then the donation will be carried over to the next budget year.
