BUILD THE NEST... BUILD THE FUTURE...
The Build The Nest Annual Appeal is the cornerstone of all fundraising for St. Dominic Savio. To remain a competitive faith-based college preparatory school we rely on our community of parents, grandparents, Board members, faculty, staff, former parents and friends for their support.
Gifts to the annual appeal support the school's operating budget which includes faith formation, academic programs, extracurricular programs, facility maintenance, technology, faculty development and tuition assistance. We have set our tuition so that we can remain affordable to our families, but tuition revenue covers only a portion of what it costs to educate a student at St. Dominic Savio. The annual appeal helps bridge the gap between the actual costs of operating our school and the revenue from tuition and fees.
We encourage our community to consider giving to the Build The Nest Annual Appeal. We know there are many worthy causes asking for your participation. We are grateful for your commitment to St. Dominic Savio through a pledge or gift to the annual appeal. We welcome your participation, regardless of size, to ensure our students receive a quality education.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
This annual appeal provides essential support for operating costs related to classroom materials and equipment, facility maintenance, special events & programs, technology, staff development, tuition assistance and salaries.
The costs of educating a student in a Catholic college preparatory high school have increased consistently over the years. We have addressed this concern by charging each family only a portion of what it actually costs to educate their children. This provides an opportunity and a challenge to fill this difference through charitable giving.
We believe that all of our needs are best served in a diverse community, where tuition stays affordable for the most number of families possible. For that reason, the full cost of educating each child is not charged to families but is raised through the generous donations of friends and families of the school. Successful fundraising keeps tuition lower and it has the added benefit of providing possible tax benefits for our donors.
We encourage all friends of Catholic education and families enrolled in our school to consider an annual gift to the Build The Nest appeal, with each giving as they can. It will take the full support of the community to meet these needs. We always need volunteers to help us communicate with friends of the school about supporting the school through a gift to the annual appeal. For more information, please contact the at 512-244-4861.
Many families are employed in area companies that seek to support local non-profits such as parochial schools. This has the added benefit of doubling or significantly increasing the size of the gift that you make, which increases the benefits that you achieve. Please contact your company's Human Resource Department for their matching opportunities. For further assistance please contact at 512-388-8846, extension 5502.
