SVDP Annual Fund

Your investment in the St. Vincent De Paul Annual Fund does not merely benefit current students; it also secures tuition for future leaders, adds value to young alumni resumes, and inspires donations from those whose experiences were enriched by your generosity. 

By giving today, your impact is lasting and immeasurable.

The SVDP Annual Fund offers essential funding for programs crucial to a St. Vincent education, addressing the school’s most pressing needs each year and bridging the gap between the cost of educating each student and tuition income. By receiving this support, we can retain exceptional faculty and staff, and sustain arduous academics and extracurricular programs. Your contribution to the SVDP Annual Fund has a direct and meaningful impact on the lives of every student in our community.

The SVDP Annual Fund plays a crucial role in directly supporting the current operational budget, which helps keep tuition increases at a minimum. Setting tuition at the actual cost of education would burden many families and hinder the attendance of an economically diverse student body. By containing tuition costs through Annual Fund support, SVDP can uphold its commitment to welcoming talented and deserving students.

Absolutely! St. Vincent De Paul appreciates every gift, no matter the amount. In the previous year, gifts of $100 or less made up over 40% of our SVDP Annual Fund. 

Each and every contribution holds immense value, and achieving 100% participation ensures the ongoing strength of our school. With a gift equivalent to a family movie night or a meal at your favorite restaurant, you can significantly impact SVDP every year. 

You may also set-up monthly or quarterly recurring payments, making your gift more manageable.

St. Vincent De Paul deeply appreciates the longstanding tradition of leadership displayed by our devoted and generous benefactors. Among the most generous philanthropists are current parents, alumni, trustees, grandparents, and parents of alumni.

Numerous companies offer to match the value of charitable donations made by their employees. Usually, your employer’s Human Resource department can inform you if your company participates in such a matching program and, if applicable, will provide the required forms and instructions to initiate the match.
