Areas of Support

Annual Fund

The Annual Fund is to bridge the gap between the actual cost of educating our students and the income we receive from tuition. Without the Annual Fund we would not be able to keep the annual increase in tuition to a minimum. Gifts made through the "School Envelope" support the Annual Fund.

 

Scholarships

At St. Vincent de Paul Catholic School, we believe that financial limitations should not be a barrier to families desiring to provide their children with a Catholic education. Scholarships are currently given to families in financial need through the interest obtained from the Endowment Fund. Unfortunately, the need is greater than the funds available.

You can support an existing scholarship fund or create your own. If you are interested in creating a scholarship, please contact the Parish Office.

If you would like to donate to our Endowment Fund please use the monthly envelope marked "Endowment Fund" that is distributed through the Parish.

Technology

St. Vincent de Paul Catholic School is committed to providing a technologically advanced education. Gifts to support technology at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic School would purchase items such as:

  • Laptop Computers (30 @ $1,200/each)
  • Apple Ipads (30 @ $500/each)
  • Smart Boards
  • Additional Faculty training

 

Gifts In Kind

If you have a good or service that you would like to donate to the School or Parish, please contact the School Office. Examples include: construction material, computers, instructional equipment, printing costs, items for fundraisers, sports equipment, facility maintenance materials, marketing, fundraising, or development expertise, etc.

We rely on the dedication and service of our parish families. Volunteers are an important part of our school. If you are interested in volunteering your time, please contact the School.
