The Annual Fund is for you and your family.
The Earth School is a big part of your family. The connections made here with other families, the time spent in sports, the after school events – the Earth School is a significant part of your lives.
The Annual Fund helps make that possible.
An Annual Fund is flexible, allowing school administration and governance to take meaningful action as necessary. Whether that opportunity means addressing the physical environment, dealing with staffing needs, or adding necessary programmatic upgrades, the flexibility to support the ongoing function and stability of the school is the key to using Annual Funds.
Annual Funds are generally unrestricted in nature. The open-ended nature of the gift allows an institution to utilize these funds they are most needed, in the timeliest manner.
At its heart, the Annual Fund is a group of fundraising activities focused on a single goal: to support the operations of this school.
- Annual Appeal
- Sponsored Events
Supporting the Earth School places your gift directly into operations and programs that benefit your student and family. It is fully tax-deductible, and can be paid as a single gift or pledge.
Through a variety of annual giving programs conducted over the course of the year, the Franciscan Montessori Earth School and St. Francis Academy closes the gap ($1,560) for every enrolled student) between the true cost of education and tuition. These generous contributions are received through many activities, programs and events managed by the Advancement Office.
