The Annual Fund Campaign celebrates the myriad of opportunities available to students at Saint Joe’s to ensure that the highly respected mission and Charism of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart in providing quality Catholic education is sustained.
The Brothers accept boys into the freshman class at Saint Joseph High School, and four years later graduate young men in the Saint Joe’s tradition, prepared to succeed in furthering their educations and ready to take their place as productive, responsible and giving members of our society. Along the way, the faculty and staff, our alumni and, of course, our current parents, all play an important part in making it happen.
Annual Fund support is critical
Participation is key
Participation by just 15% of our alumni would advance the Annual Fund to over $300,000. This affirmation of the value of a Saint Joe’s education would, in turn, enhance foundation and corporate support.
Tuition alone does not cover the costs of operating the school
A successful Annual Fund is necessary to maintain a high level of academic and institutional excellence.
The Annual Fund has two distinct segments:
- The Direct Mail and Phon-A-Thon campaign, which formally begins in September with the mailing of more than 7,000 invitations to participate. It runs through June 30th.
- The Brother Bernardine, SC Memorial Golf Classic, which strives to net $50,000.
The Annual Fund supplements the Operating Budget, helping to keep tuition affordable for our Saint Joseph families. This year, the Annual Fund will provide funding for financial aid for students in need, academic scholarships, technology upgrades, improvements and student activities/programs that enhance campus life.
If you have any questions regarding the Annual Fund or other giving to the school, please contact Mr. Ryan Michelson ’08, Director of Development, at (732) 549-7600, ext. 228 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
