Annual Giving FAQs
What is The Annual Fund?
The Annual Fund is comprised of gifts from a dedicated group of alumni, parents, and friends that are generally unrestricted and are used by the school where thay are needed most: in supporting the school's day-to-day operations. Academic programs, need-based financial aid & scholarships, campus technology, and library resources are a few of the many areas that benefit from your gift.
What does a gift to Salesianum's Annual Fund do?
Your gift helps to bridge the gap between what the school receives in tuition and what it actually costs to educate each student. Your annual gift helps Salesianum School support vital programs at the school and helps ensure that no deserving student be denied a Salesianum education due to an inability to pay. As an unrestricted fund, it provides the school flexibility to absorb unexpected costs and maintenance throughout the campus without increasing the tuition rates.
Why should I contribute?
Your gift to the Annual Fund helps keep tuition increases to a minimum by providing much-needed financial aid to ensure that these increases do not become a burden to those students who most need it. It also supports the budgets for many valuable programs on campus that make the Salesianum School experience unique. We invite you to take part in this important tradition, by helping the current generation of students benefit from the Catholic education that Salesianum provides.
How important is my participation?
Your support is vital to the financial health and reputation of the school. The participation rate of those who contribute to the school's annual fundraising effort is an important measure used by foundations and other grant-giving institutions in dispensing grant funding. It is also a good tool to measure how pleased alumni are with their high school experience and how happy parents are with the education and guidance that Salesianum School has provided for their sons.
How will I be contacted?
We will contact you about Salesianum School Annual Fund through mail, through our phonathons and by e-mail.
Alumni Participation - It's not how much, but how many
The rate at which alumni give is an important statistic and a barometer of an institution's relevance. The participation rate is an important measure used by foundations and other grant-giving institutions in dispensing grant funding. Making a gift to Salesianum School is a gauge of the value alumni place on their educational experience and is an affirmation of the good work we continue to do today.

Thank you for your continued support of Salesianum School!
Salesianum School recognizes that the greatest gift we can give, as parents, is the responsibility of educating our sons in their formidable years. Salesianum understands the importance of family and we are blessed to call our family all who share a common bond - the Salesianum School experience. This includes the bright and motivated students, a skilled and caring faculty, and generous alumni, parents, and friends who support the mission of the school.
Because tuition only covers 88 percent of the actual cost of educating each student, these contributions make a significant impact on the daily experiences of current students.
No matter how much you decide to give to Salesianum, know that it is your participation that matters. Every gift helps offset the school's current operating expenses and makes up the difference between what tuition covers and the actual cost of running the school.
