The P Fund
Together we give. Together we grow.
In a challenging economy with few guarantees, an investment in St. Anne-Pacelli is one thing you can count on to show a strong return. When you contribute to The P Fund at St. Anne-Pacelli Catholic School, you are investing in a child’s future and in the future of the school. Donations to The P Fund are unrestricted and support a variety of needs throughout our school including academic programs, student financial assistance, technology updates, athletics, facility improvements and professional development for faculty and staff. We ask the entire school community including faculty and staff, alumni, parents of alumni, Grand Vikings, current parents, and current students to make a contribution towards The P Fund this year. Join us! Together we give. Together we grow.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why does St. Anne-Pacelli have The P Fund?
Tuition only covers 82% of the cost to educate students at St. Anne-Pacelli Catholic School. The P Fund is necessary to make up the almost $1,500 per student difference. It also allows our parents, staff, alumni and friends to show support for our school while receiving a tax deduction.
Why doesn’t the school raise tuition to cover the true cost of educating and quit relying on annual gifts to The P Fund?
Raising tuition to cover the actual cost of a St. Anne-Pacelli education would put it out of reach for many families. The P Fund is a way to allow families who have the means to pay more to do so while keeping education affordable for those who are less able to pay. Additionally, The P Fund contributions are tax-deductible, while tuition payments are not.
How are contributions to The P Fund used?
Donations to The P Fund are unrestricted and are, therefore, used for a variety of needs throughout the school. At St. Anne-Pacelli, The P Fund supports programs, salaries, student financial assistance, facility improvements and other operating expenses.
Why should I give?
If you are a parent, what could be smarter than putting your money where your child is? As an alumnus, you want to talk about your years here with pride so help us keep growing and improving. If you are part of the Catholic community, you will be helping the church family by giving children a strong foundation in their faith. Finally, if you are a friend or community member, your interest may be in developing good citizens. A St. Anne-Pacelli education molds young people into leaders who give back to the community. Your gift creates an immediate and lasting impact.
What if I can’t make a large gift?
Gifts of any size are appreciated! The amount of the gift is not what matters; what does matter is your continuous support and selfless giving to help us reach our goal. Smart people know that working together is the best way to succeed.
Can I make my gift in memory or honor of someone special?
Absolutely! We will make sure the special person receives notice of the gift and will recognize the honoree in the Annual Giving Report.
Can my gift be matched by my employer?
Many companies will match their employee’s charitable donations thus increasing your total gift. Please check with your Human Resources department to see if your employer offers matching funds.
How do I make a contribution?
You may make a gift by cash, check, credit card, online payment, or transfer of stock. You may also make a pledge and spread your gift out throughout the year.
