The students at St. Joseph School deserve your support. The school provides children and their families with a foundation for academic achievement, discipline, character building, and spiritual development. For more than 100 years, St. Joseph School has educated the whole child and provided a caring community for families. You can make a difference in the lives of children here at St. Joseph School by including a gift in your estate plans.
While the school strives to balance its budget through fundraising and parish support, the costs of education continue to escalate. If a community suffers a few tough years economically, a school may incur debt that threatens its survival. Rising tuition costs cause families to question whether they can afford Catholic education for their children, and as a result, more now apply for tuition assistance than ever before.
The Endowment for St. Joseph School was incorporated in January 1979 to ensure that St. Joseph School remains open, excellent and accessible. Our mission is to provide tuition assistance to needy families and budgetary assistance to targeted programs like world languages and our Learning Resource Program, and support for programs that build teaching excellence and faith formation. We are achieving these goals by building endowment funds that will provide tuition assistance and program funding.You can make a difference by including a gift in your estate plans to St. Joseph School directly or to the Endowment for St. Joseph School. We leverage your support and make sure that assistance reaches families and programs that need it.
