The Annual Fund is the cornerstone of Saint Clement School’s fundraising efforts. The day-to-day operating expenses of the school are not covered by tuition alone. Contributions to The Annual Fund go directly to the school’s operating budget and tuition assistance program. Through generous donations to The Annual Fund, Saint Clement School balances its budget and secures the resources it needs to provide an exceptional education to its students. Once The Annual fund meets its budgetary requirements, the additional funds go to a long wish-list of projects such as technology updates, curriculum enhancements, faculty development and facilities improvements.
School Family Commitment
The Annual Fund seeks contributions from 100% of school families. This goal reflects the school’s high expectation of parent involvement in all aspects of their child’s education. Parent engagement in fundraising through The Annual Fund is an essential part of belonging to the Saint Clement School community.
Gifts of all sizes make an impact! In addition to school family commitments, we welcome contributions from alumni, parishioners interested in supporting catholic education at Saint Clement School, parents of alumni and our Lincoln Park neighbors. The Annual Fund offers several giving levels for donors to choose the appropriate level of support for their specific situation. Giving levels include:
|Platinum Anchor||$10,000 and above|
|Gold Anchor||$5,000 - $9,999|
|Silver Anchor||$3,000 - $4,999|
|Blue Anchor||$1,500 - $2,999|
|Anchor||$1,499 and below|
Some donors will have the means and desire to donate at a high level. Gifts at the Silver, Gold and Platinum Anchor levels help the school continue to improve its top-notch curricula, obtain specialized training for teachers, give much needed T.L.C. to our 100+ year old school building and to expand tuition assistance to families in need. To acknowledge this level of giving, the Pastor and Principal will host an annual appreciation celebration for Silver, Gold, and Platinum Anchor donors.
