100% in 100 Days
GIVE TO THE SERVITE ANNUAL FUND
The Servite Annual Fund is the most important fundraising effort at Servite. It touches each student and every teacher, making our distinctive programs possible. The Annual Fund represents roughly 10% of the school’s annual operating budget and plays an integral role in day-to-day operations. The success of this annual solicitation relates directly to faculty salaries, curricular and extracurricular programs, financial aid, site maintenance, and much more.
Between September 9th and December 17th, our aim is participation from 100% of our current Servite families. That's 100% participation in 100 days.
By giving or pledging early, your dollars will be put to use immediately for our wonderful faculty and students.
No matter the size of your contribution; $5, $500, $5,000—any amount that is meaningful for your family—it is your participation that counts.
And to show the power of participation, the class that has the highest percentage of family participation will leave a permanent legacy on our campus, with a bench installed in the Alumni Garden with a plaque for the winning class. (Percentage of participation of the winning class must be 70% or more, or prize will not be awarded.)
Every gift is appreciated and helps us meet our goal of 100% participation.
Providing a Servite education takes the support of our entire community. Help us get to 100%. Please be as generous as you can.
- Why 100 Days?
- How is the money used?
- How much should I/we contribute?
- How do we reach 100%
- Is my donation tax deductible?
- My son receives Financial Aid, so you don't expect me to give, right?
- I'm paying full tuition so I know you're not expecting ME to give, right?
- Why don't we just raise tuition?
Gifts made to the Annual Fund are used in the current school year and provides across-the-board support for the school, allowing us to recruit and retain top faculty, ensure academic excellence and provide distinctive programs such as Priory and Formation, and provide financial assistance to qualified families.
Each family is counted toward a class's 100% goal once we receive their Annual Fund gift or pledge. (Families with multiple students do not need to make multiple gifts, unless you want to!) Your gift will be "counted" for all of your sons' classes. When more parents donate, the school is positioned better to receive grants from others who naturally want to see you donating to the school your student attends.
We really are. There is a gap between what tuition pays for and the actual cost of a Servite education. This year, that difference is approximately $1,850. That's why we ask that everyone give something - to close the gap and ensure that each student receives the full benefit of a Servite education.
