2016-17 Campaign Priorities
St. Jude the Apostle School began its Annual Giving appeal in 2001 to help off-set the additional educational costs that tuition does not cover. As the school pursues its mission, your gift provides resources to help maintain our reputation of excellence.
Please consider making a donation to the 2016-17 Annual Appeal. Tuition and fees alone do not cover the cost of educating the child, and we rely on your gifts to continually make improvements to our school. We have three curricula which need updates: Social Studies across the school, Middle School Literature, and Elementary Language Arts . In order to do so, our 2016-17 campaign will help to offset the costs associated with purchasing textbooks, workbooks, and teaching materials.
We want to thank each of you in advance for your many contributions to our school community. Please take a moment to prayerfully consider your response to this year’s campaign. This is an opportunity for you to have a lasting impact on the students of St. Jude the Apostle School.
2016-17 Annual Appeal Parent Chair-Couple
We are excited to announce Mr. & Mrs. Chris Elliott as this year’s parent chaircouple! Chris and Kelly have two children at SJS; one in middle school and one in elementary. Their oldest son is an SJS alumni and flourishing in high school! Chris has a background serving as a former Treasurer for the St. Jude School Advisory Council. Kelly gives her time generously through various H&S committees, athletic association and group leader for “Come, Lord Jesus”. The Elliott’s will bring a wealth of knowledge to this year’s campaign!
Ways to Give
A pledge allows a donor to plan a giving schedule that is convenient, and may enable a donor to consider a larger gift rather than making a one-time cash payment.
Securities, or stock, can be made as a one-time gift or as a payment on a pledge.
Your company or business may have a matching gift program that will double, or possibly triple, your donation to St. Jude School. Please ask your company for a matching gift form and send it to the school along with your payment. For your convenience, a list of popular companies with matching gift programs can be found by CLICKING HERE.
If you or someone you know may not be able to make a gift at this time, but would like to consider sustaining the future of St. Jude the Apostle School through acknowledgement in their estate plans, please contact us at (225) 769-2344.
