Gifts to the Annual Fund support our students and programs in every area, including academics, staff and faculty training, athletics, fine arts, service opportunities, technology, campus maintenance and so much more. The Annual Fund directly supports the school’s current operating budget and gives us the flexibility to respond to new initiatives and meet emerging needs throughout the year.
 
As Saint Joseph Academy’s most important philanthropic effort, we ask that everyone's first gift to the school be one to the Annual Fund. Contributions to the Annual Fund represent a belief in our mission and an investment in our students.  

Your gift, no matter the size, makes a true difference in the lives of our young women and goes to work immediately by providing support for Every student. Every day.

Annual Fund gifts are accepted via personal check, credit card, or in stock. For your convenience, you may make a gift today online by simply clicking here.

List of 4 frequently asked questions.

  • Q: Why not just raise tuition rather than solicit gifts?

    As a school of the city, Saint Joseph Academy is proud of its wide socio-economic diversity and the rich experiences this provides all of our students. Although raising tuition would generate a certain level of revenue, it will not solve the ongoing needs facing the school. Furthermore, in order to generate the total support necessary, we would have to increase tuition for each family $1,540 to cover education costs.
  • Q: What is our Goal?

    We are setting an ambitious goal for the 2017-18 academic year (fiscal year is July 1 through June 30) and plan to raise more than $550,000. More importantly, we are hoping for high donor participation. Gifts like yours can inspire other donors, and broad-based annual participation plays a large role in encouraging significant support from corporate and foundation donors. A gift of any size to the Annual Fund is a vote of confidence in Saint Joseph Academy.
  • Q: Who is being asked to participate in Annual Giving?

    All members of the community who have been impacted by Saint Joseph Academy and support our mission are being asked to give. Our alumnae, faculty, staff, parents, the Board of Directors and friends have generously supported us the past with Annual Fund gifts. We rely on their continued support every year.
  • Q: What are employer matching gifts?

    Many corporations will match employees’ gifts to the school of their choice. Some companies may double or even triple the amount of your gift!

    It's easy to do:

    Check out the human resources website for your company – they often have the forms right there or -
    • Call Development Director Mrs. Susan Flood at 216.619.1938. We often keep common companies' paperwork on file, and can mail or email the form to you.
    • Send the matching gift form along with your gift to Saint Joseph Academy
    • We’ll process the matching gift form and contact you when the gift is received!
