St. Andrew Catholic School has always appreciated financial support from generous parents, grandparents, parishioners, alums, and others who value Catholic education to help maintain, develop, and enrich our school and the lives of our students and families. We thank contributors for the generous donations, which have always provided St. Andrew Catholic School with that extra push and widened capacity for service, academic quality, and value.
Responsible Financial Management
As a private school, we cannot afford to take a single dollar for granted, and we never have. Because we strive to provide top quality education and enrichment programs to as many children as possible, we consistently channel our financial resources toward that end. To supplement these endeavors and operational costs, we use the interest earned from the Endowment Fund originally established through prudent planning and subsequent building efforts of our founders. The economic downturn has impacted that fund: even with the average $100,000 per year earned for the Endowment Fund by our famous annual school festival, St. Andrew Catholic School is constantly challenged to preserve its fiscal security. Although hardworking parents diligently working fundraisers will remain a mainstay of St. Andrew Catholic School, financial contributions will always be an essential part of our school’s financial wellbeing.
Our donation programs allow parents and others to target funding in many different ways, including adopting a classroom, providing various improvements, reaching out to interested children and families needing tuition assistance, as well as allowing donors to “make a wish” for the school. No donation has ever been too small. For more information as to how your thoughtful generosity can make a valuable difference, please contact our principal, Mr. David Perry, at 239-772-3922.
Unless you request otherwise, your donations will always be personally acknowledged. More importantly, you will be remembered in our prayers for our benefactors who have built St. Andrew Catholic School and continue to sustain it!
