The Development Office at Benedictine Academy is responsible for helping our school remain on a firm financial footing. Through donations, fundraising, events, publications, and more. This office is essential to the continuation of our school's mission and operation. There are several funds to which you can lend your support:
The Annual Appeal is our single most important fundraising effort each year. Because tuition does not cover all of the day-to-day expenses of running the school, the monies contributed by alumnae, parents and friends of the Academy to the Annual Fund help cover operating costs to pay teachers and keep on the lights and heat in the school buildings.
Our Tuition Assistance Fund is necessary to maintain (and replenish each year) because it provides students' academic scholarship monies and emergency funds to qualified families who find it difficult to pay the entire amount of the Academy's reasonable tuition. Your gift to this fund supports dedicated, bright, young women who would not otherwise attend the Academy.
The Academy's Special Events are carefully selected and planned to appeal to various groups within our constituency, to offer something of interest to people of different ages and pursuits. A couple of examples of events are the annual fall Golf Outing and our recently added Taste of the Towns. We also host periodic Grand Reunions and induct Hall of Fame individuals every several years.
The Endowment Fund offers donors an opportunity to make an investment today that will yield benefits to Benedictine Academy for many years to come. Gifts to this fund remain as principal to generate earnings for the school in perpetuity. Income from endowment funds may be used to support tuition assistance or to fund professional staff development.
