The Annual Fund is the single most important gift you can give to the school, raising unrestricted donations to support the day to day operations of St. Pius X. Our mission calls us to keep tuition low, and this year’s gap between what we charge in tuition and what it actually costs to educate is $1,546 per student.

Your financial contribution provides:

•  SECURITY: Daily officer patrol, officers for every event

•  TECHNOLOGY: Computers, monitors, tablets

•  ARTS: Young Center projector and lighting

•  ACADEMICS: Educational software, faculty salaries

•  SPIRITUALITY: Rise Against Hunger service project, Campus Chaplain

•  ATHLETICS: Golf cart, concession iPads, shot clocks

•  OPERATIONS: AC unit and roof replacements

We’re adapting quickly by providing the college preparatory education you seek for your student, while keeping your children safe from harm. Please help us in this important work by making your contribution today as we work to provide the college preparatory education you seek for your student. Every gift, however modest, pushes us closer to our goal of raising $925,000 and increases our participation numbers. 

 

The Pius Way

By banding together and each family doing what it can, St. Pius X will come through this pandemic stronger than ever. 

Pride - Integrity - Unity - Sacrifice  

Thank you for living out your Pius pride by participating in the 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 $1,546 per child must be raised by other means. The Annual Fund provides the largest source of financial support for making up that difference. Your gift to the Annual Fund provides the margin of excellence at St. Pius X, supporting a wide range of needs across campus. It also provides unrestricted support, allowing the school administration to determine the most pressing needs while relieving the burden on tuition.
 

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 $1,546 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 $400 for the 2021-22 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. The participation goal for current parents is 80%, and the goal for alumni giving is 800. Outside funders, especially Foundations, want to know that those directly affected by the school show their support through Annual Fund participation.

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 nearly $70,000 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, 2022. 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 2021-22 Annual Fund is June 30, 2022.

Current parents are asked to make their gift or pledge by December 31.
