A private Episcopal school for primary through high school students in Houston, Texas

St. Francis Fund

St Francis Fund LogoThe centerpiece of our school’s fundraising initiatives, the St. Francis Fund is the first and most important gift we ask of our community each year. The St. Francis Fund is unrestricted, which allows the school’s leadership to remain flexible and nimble and face head-on any challenges that arise.  It provides critical resources that benefit every facet of our school’s operations, including faculty recruitment and retention, financial aid, student safety and security, technology, the arts, and athletics.

When the St. Francis Fund flourishes, so do the lives of our students. We invite parents, grandparents, alumni, alumni parents, faculty, and community members to share in our common goal to challenge and motivate students in the academically and spiritually stimulating environment that is our beloved school.

76% of 2019-20 St. Francis Families Donated to the St. Francis Fund
