The St. John’s Giving Fund is our most important fundraising effort of the year because it provides SJPDS with unrestricted resources that are used where the need is greatest. In an effort to keep tuition increases to a minimum, gifts to the St. John's Fund help to bridge the gap between student tuition and the actual yearly cost to educate each child. Not only do gifts to the St. John's Fund advance the Mission of the School, but they will also help us realize all of our goals!
Grants contribute significantly to the financial needs of St. John's Parish Day School. Competitive grants are awarded to schools with a high percentage of donor participation from school families, faculty, staff, and members of the Board of Trustees.
Our goal is to always have 100% donor participation in donating to the St. John's Fund. Year after year, 100% of the SJPDS faculty, staff, and Board of Trustees members generously donate to the St. John's Fund. We challenge every SJPDS family, alumni, and alumni family members to do the same! We gratefully celebrate the many everyday heroes who generously support the vision and mission of St. John's Parish Day School!
