The St. Francis Fund

Supporting the Most Vital and Valued Aspects of a St. Francis Education

Because it impacts every student’s educational experience, the St. Francis Fund is our most important philanthropic priority each year. Generous participation from parents, grandparents, alumni, and faculty and staff reflects a robust community commitment to continually enhance the exceptional quality of a St. Francis education.

Every donor who contributes to the St. Francis Fund provides support for tuition assistance, enrichment of the arts, expansion of athletic programs, new technology, and the development and retention of our outstanding faculty and staff, whose greatest joy is to see our students flourish as people for others.

By giving to the St. Francis Fund, you are:

Ensuring Academic Excellence
Attracting and retaining the best faculty enables us to provide instructional excellence and innovative programming designed to bring out the greatest potential in every student.

Opening Doors with Tuition Assistance
Your gift means we can offer financial support to talented students who otherwise would not be able to attend St. Francis.

Optimizing Athletic Programs
The best coaches, uniforms, equipment, and facilities allow all our teams to compete at the highest possible level.

Enriching the Arts
Visual and performing arts supplies, materials, costumes, scripts, and sets give students ample opportunities to showcase their talents.

Targeting Areas of Greatest Need
Thanks to your generosity, school leadership has the flexibility to address critical needs such as safety and security, technology, and campus improvements.

Leadership Circle

We invite you to consider a leadership gift of $1,952 or more to build a legacy that fulfills the promise of our St. Francis mission for every St. Francis family.

Circle of Excellence

Every gift is important. This community effort depends on participation from all current families, grandparents, faculty, staff, alumni, trustees, and other friends. By providing resources that tuition alone cannot cover, the St. Francis Fund ensures excellence in every facet of your family’s school experience.
