Parent Annual Fund

The Parent Annual Fund (PAF) preserves and enhances initiatives that are not covered by tuition revenue. The PAF is an impactful way for parents to contribute to their son or daughter’s Academy experience each year. Your gift supports academics, athletics, fine arts, financial aid, and professional development for our wonderful faculty and staff.

Why not just raise tuition? The Academy is sensitive to the financial considerations of our school families. We strive to keep our tuition as affordable as possible, while acknowledging that our current rate will not cover the “true cost” of educating each student. For this reason, we respectfully ask our parents, alumni, grandparents and friends to help us make up that shortfall through their annual support. And there is a financial advantage for donors since their PAF gifts are 100% tax-deductible.

Our goal is 100% participation. Participation by every school family, at a level commensurate with their ability, helps the Academy best serve its students. All gifts, large and small, make a difference. Your support is also a prominent sign of our shared commitment to the worthy mission of the Academy of the Holy Names.
