Annual Fund

Catholic Prep Annual Fund FAQs

What is The Catholic Prep Annual Fund?

The Catholic Prep Annual Fund is a critical source of immediately-expendable funds that can be invested in meeting the ever-changing needs of SJCP. 

What are the Catholic Prep Annual Fund gifts used for?

The Catholic Prep Annual Fund gifts touch virtually every aspect of our students’ lives: academic program support, financial aid, athletics, student activities, facilities, and more. Saint John’s does not receive any federal, state, or local funding or financial contributions from the Archdiocese, parishes, or from any religious orders.

When will my gift be used?

Your gift to The Catholic Prep Annual Fund will be spent in the year in which it is received.

Can I specify where my gift is directed?

You may choose to make an unrestricted gift or designate your gift to a specific department.

Why is it important to give every year?

Saint John’s Catholic Prep’s fiscal year ends on June 30. Every July 1, the Catholic Prep Annual Fund begins at $0 with zero donors. We depend on your support to build it up again to meet emerging needs in the new year. Tuition and fees only cover 85% of Catholic Prep’s operating budget.

I can’t afford to make a large gift. Will it really make a difference?

Gifts of all sizes really do make a significant difference. In fiscal year 2017-2018, $26,770 was raised from gifts of $250 or less. Remember, your contribution will directly enhance the educational experience of each one of our students.

How can I make a gift to The Catholic Prep Annual Fund?

You may make a quick, easy and secure gift using your credit card online, or give by mail with a check or credit card.


Can I arrange a multi-year pledge or recurring fit payments?

Yes; these are convenient ways to support The Catholic Prep Annual Fund. Simply specify the billing or pledge reminder schedule (monthly, quarterly or annual) on your paper or online commitment form.
