Annual Fund

Providing the margin of excellence

At St. Pius X, tuition covers about 91 percent of the cost of educating a student. The difference of roughly $1,200 per child must be raised by other means. The Annual Fund provides the largest source of financial support for making up that difference. Thanks to the generosity of the St. Pius X community, tuition increased just $350 for the 2018-19 school year. Your gift to the Annual Annual Fund contributions provide the margin of excellence at St. Pius X, supporting a wide range of needs across campus. Your Annual Fund gift provides unrestricted support, allowing the school administration to determine the most pressing needs while relieving the burden on tuition. The financial goal for the 2018-19 school year is $900,000, providing more than five percent of the annual budget.

Why does St. Pius X have an Annual Fund?

At St. Pius X, tuition covers about 91 percent of the cost of educating a student. The difference of roughly $1,200 per child must be raised by other means. The Annual Fund provides the largest source of financial support for making up that difference. Thanks to the generosity of the St. Pius X community, tuition increased just $350 for the 2018-19 school year. Your gift to the Annual Fund is the most important annual gift you can give to St. Pius X. Without the Annual Fund, St. Pius X would have to dramatically raise tuition or undertake steep budget cuts.

Participating in the Annual Fund

​The entire St. Pius X community - current parents, alumni, parents of alumni, faculty and staff, grandparents, and friends - are invited to participate in the Annual Fund. One way you can double, or even triple your gift, is through your company’s matching gift program. By utilizing the matching gifts program, and increasing your gift, you may qualify for one of the leadership donor levels. Last year, we received more than $80,000 in matching gifts. More information regarding this program is available here.

When are Annual Fund gifts due?

We strongly encourage you to make your gift by May 31, 2019. This will ensure your donation is put to use this school year, and that you are properly recognized in the school's Annual Report published in the fall. The final payment deadline for the 2018-19 Annual Fund is June 30, 2019.
