Parent Annual Fund

Keep in mind that no gift is too small; what is far more important is that we all participate and demonstrate that all Academy families stand united in our common mission of providing the absolute best educational environment for our children.

The Parent Annual Fund helps to preserve and enhance programs that are not covered by tuition. The PAF is the best way possible for parents to help make a difference in the future of the Academy. It is necessary to sustain the life of the school through enriched academic, athletic and fine arts programs, financial aid, faculty development and overall operating expenses.

Why not just raise tuition rather than solicit gifts? This may seem like the quickest solution, but we wish to keep tuition as low as possible for several reasons. The Academy is sensitive to financial considerations of all of our families, therefore, we do not want to place our school at a significant competitive disadvantage by unduly increasing tuition. Additionally, there is a financial advantage that annual donations provide to those who itemize their tax returns.

Our goal is 100% participation! Participation by every family, each at their own level, helps the Academy achieve this goal. All gifts, large and small, make a difference. The support of every family is an important, symbolic indicator of our commitment to share in achieving the unique mission of the Academy of the Holy Names.

** The Blessed Marie Rose Society is a formal organization of lead benefactors to the Academy. Membership in the society is open to all individuals, companies and foundations who have made a minimum annual gift of $1,500 to one of our four leadership categories. Each year, members of The Blessed Marie Rose Society will be invited to a private reception in recognition of their leadership generosity. It is our hope that all donors aspire to this level of support.
