Invest in Their Future Today
The St. James Annual Fund Campaign will kick off on Thursday, September 14th.
The Annual Fund allows us to fulfill our mission to challenge students ethically, academically, & artistically.
Like most private schools, St. James relies on annual, tax-deductible gifts – in addition to tuition and endowment returns – to balance the budget each year and continue to provide enhanced educational opportunities and facilities for the children.
The Annual Fund provides us with the flexibility to make financial investments during the school year that may not otherwise be possible.
Examples of these expenditures include:
- In-year financial aid for families that have hit a financially difficult time
- Investment and updates in the Computer & Technology Lab
- Enhanced teacher Montessori training & continuing education
- Additional classroom supplies and works, and more.
Last year, gifts for the Annual Fund Campaign totaled more than $26,000.
Our goal for 2017-2018 is to raise $25,000. We are kicking off the fundraising next Thursday, September 14th, to take advantage of North Texas Giving Day. This program will multiply any donation over $25 with bonus funds and prizes for the school.
Help us create our butterfly donor wall with your gift. Specific donations will earn a butterfly at the following levels:
- Blue Butterfly: $500
- Pink Butterfly: $750
- Yellow Butterfly: $1000
- Green Butterfly: $1500
The annual fund campaign will continue through November 19th.
We will be tracking our progress with our “Legometer." In exchange for your donation, your child will receive class color Legos to deposit into the Legometer to track each class’s participation in the Annual Fund. The class with the largest percentage of participation will be rewarded with a special day of Lego building activities.
