The generosity of Saint Patrick Academy supporters throughout the years has allowed our students to thrive. Now, more than ever, your support is needed to ensure that the next generation of Catholic school-educated students can serve as ambassadors to the faith, leaders within the community, and role models for younger generations.
The Saint Patrick Fund is a fundraising program that provides an opportunity for parents, alumni, grandparents, parents of alumni, faculty, and staff to secure the continued quality of a Saint Patrick Academy education.
The Saint Patrick Fund is critical to the School’s continued success, as it helps underwrite the budgetary gap between tuition and the true cost of educating each child. As gifts to the Saint Patrick Fund remain unrestricted in use, the Saint Patrick Fund supports every facet of the School’s operation: Faculty salaries and professional development, financial aid, technology, and our many enrichment programs.
A gift to the Saint Patrick Fund is the first and most important gift we ask of every parent, grandparent, faculty, alumnus, and friend.
As an independent, Catholic school, Saint Patrick Academy operates without financial support from local, state, and federal governments in New Hampshire. The School relies on tuition income, annual fundraisers, and a strong Fund to maintain operations. Each year, the Saint Patrick Fund raises money critical to balancing the school’s budget. A robust Fund enables the School to sustain its unparalleled faith-based academic offering for students from PreK-3 through 8th grade.
The Saint Patrick Fund provides you an opportunity to contribute to the growth of our students as citizens, scholars, and leaders. Your gift to the Saint Patrick Fund makes a real difference to our School, and we appreciate your ongoing support.
When you contribute to the Saint Patrick Fund, you are supporting our current and ongoing needs to ensure that we can continue to deliver an Education Fully Alive. The Fund goes toward the cost of operations and includes utilities, equipment, and administrative costs. For example, in keeping with our commitment to incorporate technology into our daily experience for the benefit of both students PreK-3 through 8th grade and staff, we have crafted a 4-year Technology Plan which will deliver the following and more:
– Hardware rotation and software maintenance
– Firewall maintenance and user device protection
– Increased number of student-devices
– Improved parent experience with a unified platform for resources
– Faculty laptop upgrade
– Upkeep and upgrades to classroom smartboards, etc.
