Corporate Sponsorships

Corporate Sponsorship Levels

For over 100 years St. Joseph School has provided quality education for our children. Many St. Joseph graduates are respected leaders in the community and many have gone on to make significant achievements. The support of businesses has been critical to St. Joseph's continued success and to the growth of our community.

Tuition at St. Joseph School and most parochial schools does not cover the full cost of educating students. To help keep tuition affordable, and to address an ever increasing need for financial assistance, we raise additional money to support our programs. Corporate/business sponsorship goes directly to underwriting the costs of producing the auction.

Your generous support as a corporate sponsor will be recognized and honored during the Friday and Saturday night live auctions where your company’s name will be seen by over 1000 auction patrons.

Your contributions may be tax deductible, please contact your tax adviser: St. Joseph tax ID # 91-1109787.
