Eagle Fund Annual Appeal
The Eagle Fund is a way for our community to support the educational journey of every Savio student on an annual basis. It is the first and most important fundraising effort of the year because it is built directly into the school's current operating budget.
Help us provide a rigorous, comprehensive, college-preparatory education and a strong faith foundation, we encourage everyone to support these efforts annually.
Every dollar raised is used in the year for the current year, funding items such as tuition assistance, spiritual enrichment opportunities, teacher professional development, and resources and technology which elevate each child's learning experience.
Together we are stronger! We know there are many worthy causes asking for your participation but supporting the mission of Savio is of vital importance. That is why the school community of board members, faculty and staff, friends, alumni and their parents, grandparents, and current parents are all asked to make a gift to this appeal to the fullest extent they are financially able to. This annual appeal runs each year from July 1 to June 30, in conjunction with the school's fiscal year, is 100% tax deductible and helps keep tuition as low as possible - and our educational experience of each student is top-notch.
We are grateful for your commitment to St. Dominic Savio through a pledge, paid over time, a recurring gift, or a one-time gift to the Eagle Fund.
