What is the Annual Fund?
The Annual Fund is the largest and most important fundraising project of the year. We rely on your Annual Fund gift to support the current year’s budget. Our 2017-2018 Annual Fund goal is to raise $45,000 and increase participation from all the groups in our community. Every student benefits. Every gift matters. Every gift is appreciated and added to our Honor Roll in the Annual Report.
Why do we have an Annual Fund?
Annual Fund donations are not “bonus” dollars. They are a part of the budgeted operating revenues. Tuition covers 84% of the actual cost of educating each student. Without the Annual Fund, SJNRCS would have to increase tuition, cut the budget and/or reduce staff/faculty.
How are Annual Fund dollars used?
The 2017-2018 Annual Fund will be used to help cover the difference between the cost of student tuition and the actual cost to educate each student. Annual Fund gifts are unrestricted which allows the school to determine their use and avoid operating at a deficit. If Annual Fund donations exceed the budgeted amount, they will be used to address other fiscal needs of the school as determined by the Principal.
Who is asked to participate in the Annual Fund?
We rely on gifts from our entire SJNRCS community:
Faculty and Staff
Matching Gift Companies
You may be able to double or triple your gift by applying for your company’s corporate matching gift. Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses. Your company’s specific matching requirements are typically found on the company website or from your Human Resource department. If your company matches gifts, request a matching gift form, and send it completed and signed with your gift to Diane Beal, Advancement Director. See contact info below.
For a gift of $499 to the Annual Fund, businesses may market to the SJNRCS community via an ad on the Sponsor’s page on the school website through June 30, 2018.
When are Annual Fund gifts due?
Final payments for Annual Fund gifts are due by the last day of school, May 24, 2018.
