The Saint Anthony Foundation for Education at work…
The Saint Anthony Foundation for Education develops and manages programs that fulfill the long-term fundraising efforts of our school. Since its beginning, the Foundation has been able to grow an endowment that funds programs that help ensure the student’s Catholic education now and for the future. Today’s students are the future generation of Catholics in America.
Three important areas benefit most from Foundation funds raised. First, we support scholarships and financial aid that are used to make sure that every child has the chance to benefit from a Catholic education. Secondly, teacher enhancements, such as raises and bonuses are supported from the funds we raise. Finally, funds are raised for special educational and technological programs that benefit both teachers and students. As you can see, the Foundation is appropriately named – as teachers and students are the true “foundation” of our Catholic community!
There is no better investment than money spent on a child’s Catholic education.
Studies document the effectiveness and quality of America’s Catholic schools. As adults, students who received a Catholic education were more likely to be active leaders in their church and community as well as educate their children in Catholic schools. Your gift to the Annual Giving Campaign is not only an instrument in Catholic education, but a legacy; a legacy that passes on the faith to the next generation.
We are very proud that nearly 100% of our school parents donate to the Foundation each year – in good times and in bad – and help us to generate over $160,000 annually. Our Parish Community is overwhelmingly generous and supportive of our school. As a community, we need for each and every member not only to participate in the events at our school, but to support Saint Anthony Catholic School financially as well. Our school children directly benefit from the support of the Saint Anthony Parish Community.
As you know, the Foundation for Education is committed to providing for the continuing long-term needs of Saint Anthony Catholic School. In addition to funding the endowment, we have provided teacher bonuses twice a year, scholarships, financial aid and special educational programs. You have shown our school wonderful support by your participation in our Annual Giving Campaign. The 2013-14 Annual Giving Campaign reached its goal. Because of your generosity in the past, our current students and future generations will continue to be the beneficiaries.
