Every year, gifts to the Annual Fund subsidize the cost of the school’s daily operations, including faculty salaries, academic and after school programming, technology, tuition assistance and building maintenance.
When you support the Annual Fund, your gift ensures that St. Joseph High School remains a place of new possibilities. Every gift, no matter what size, makes a difference in our students’ lives.
Our goal for 2015-2016 is to raise $800,000 through the Annual Fund, and to increase alumnae participation by 30 percent. Please consider making a generous tax-deductible gift to SJHS Annual Fund this year.
Endowed scholarships provide important tuition support to St. Joseph High School students. By making a donation to an existing scholarship, or by creating a scholarship in your name or the name of a loved one, you can ensure that a deserving young woman will have the advantage of an education at SJHS.
