Each year Saint Clement School relies on the Annual Fund to bridge the expected gap between tuition revenue and the cost to operate Saint Clement School. In lieu of higher tuition, the expectation is that every school family participates in the Annual Fund and contributes at the financial level that they are able. Once the operating budget is balanced, contributions will go towards renovating our school rooftop, enhancing curriculum, updating technology, increasing our Tuition Assistance Program, and addressing any direct and immediate needs in the school. All gifts to Annual Fund are charitable donations and unlike tuition payments are tax deductible.
For the 2021-2022 school year the Annual Fund contribution goal is $500,000, with 100% school family participation. Last year, the Annual Fund reached all-time highs by surpassing the monetary goal and achieving a record of 98% school family participation. Each gift demonstrates who we are as a community of faith, and our participation reflects the importance in advancing the academic and faith lives of our students. Let's join together to reach 100% participation!
