ANNUAL DEVELOPMENT DRIVE                                                          (Annual Development Drive Brochure)

Our Annual Development Drive is a “simple” fund raiser that asks current school families, faculty/staff, parishioners, alumni, grandparents, and friends to show support for Saint Henry School.. Currently we are asking supporters to donate to one of the three (3) following categories:


  • An endowed gift is a gift that keeps on giving. Endowment is essential to the long-term financial stability of our school. Anyone who is interested in the continued success of Saint Henry School can make a gift that will benefit the school’s future.    

  • A gift made to our school through this fund is invested and only the income is spent, never the invested principal. This fund is designated to offer you the opportunity to support our school so that future generations may benefit from its continued excellence.

      Francis Fund - Tuition Assistance

  • We are aware of the burden tuition places on some families who are committed to Catholic education but may not be able to manage full tuition. Saint Henry School is committed to assisting families who have demonstrated financial need. If you share our belief that Saint Henry School plays a significant part in developing the future of our faith, please return the commitment card with your tax-deductible financial contribution.

      General Fund

  •  Would you like to help?   Saint Henry School relies on the support and dedication of its parents, grandparents, parishioners, alumni, and friends for the needs and operational expenses it incurs to educate all students and to maintain and improve our facility.

  • A quality, faith-filled education is a tremendous gift in itself.  If you have benefited from a Catholic education or appreciate the value of such an education, please consider how you might be able to help our school financially.  Your participation does make a difference and whether the gifts are small or large in size the student population of Saint Henry School is sure to benefit.

Matching Gifts
You may not be aware of it, but it is possible that the company for which you work has a matching gift program. Many large corporations and several smaller companies support these programs, which either match contributions dollar-for-dollar or at a set percentage of your paid gift. Double or even triple the impact of a gift by obtaining a matching gift from participating companies. Learn if your employer has a matching gift program by contacting a representative from your company’s Personnel or Human Resources office.

What is the time line for the Annual Fund?
The Annual Fund Campaign coincides with the school’s fiscal year which is July 1 through June 30. All gifts and pledges are due by June 30 of the year in which you would like to be recognized in the SHS Annual Report.

How much should we give?

Only you can decide. We ask that you remember that your contribution, along with those of all our donors, will directly enhance a young child's catholic education. The only gift too small is no gift at all!

By supporting the Annual Fund each year, you are helping to continue Saint Henry School’s tradition of providing the highest quality catholic education. Gifts to the Annual Fund are 100% tax deductible. Simply click here to obtain the commitment card.

Gifts should be made payable to Saint Henry School and mailed to:
Saint Henry School
