|St. Francis Fund|
Each year, St. Francis charges less for tuition than the actual cost of educating the students. We do this in an effort to make it as affordable as possible. This year, the difference between the actual cost and the charge for tuition is $2,450. If you multiply that by approximately 800 students you will see that we start each year needing to raise more than $1,960,000 in donations.
We raise this $1,960,000 through personal donations from parents, grandparents, alumni, friends, special events, businesses, foundations, etc. Without these donations the cost of tuition would need to be even higher. Over the next few years our goal is to raise more money from alums, businesses, foundations, and special events, to keep tuition affordable for the current parents.
Until then, however, it is the current parents whose children are receiving the quality education we provide, so we ask that they please donate through the annual appeal to help make up this difference between what we charge and what it costs.
Please know that your tax-deductible gift pays for library materials, technology, athletics, music and drama programs, quality faculty members, science equipment, ministry programs, and more.
You can now donate online!
