St. Francis High School

Annual Fund


St. Francis High School has been, and continues to be, a ONE IN A MILLION experience for students, parents, alumni and friends.  As the only Capuchin Franciscan high school west of the Mississippi, St. Francis High School is truly ONE IN A MILLION.

Our legacy is only as strong as those who share the vision and make an investment in St. Francis to ensure that our alma mater, which we love, remains vibrant and viable for generations to come.  We are blessed to witness this investment come full circle, as this year we welcome three 3rd generation Golden Knights into the Freshman class.

Make your gift in honor of, or in memory of, that teacher, coach, friar, mentor or friend that made your St. Francis High School experience ONE IN A MILLION!

The Annual Fund is critical in supporting the general operating budget of St. Francis High School as well as its ongoing campus deferred maintenance plan and renovation projects. Efforts to maintain a socio-economic diverse student population and a reasonable tuition translate into an operating budget that can not be solely supported by tuition. Gifts to the Annual Fund therefore are critical in supporting the day-to-day school operations as well as addressing ongoing deferred maintenance needs. Each year, with the advice of our Board of Directors and Director of Operations, facility, technology and equipment needs and requirements are reviewed. Also considered are needs for classroom, computer and science labs and other student-related space. The Annual Fund, therefore, directly supports general operating requirements, technology enhancements and physical space maintenance and enhancements.
Parents of current students are asked to commit to an annual gift or pledge to the Annual Fund for each of the four years their son(s) is at St. Francis High School. Alumni, parents of graduates and friends of the school are encouraged to support the Annual Fund – this investment enables the school to satisfy its immediate financial needs and plays a significant part in maintaining financial stability.
