3 Purpose of this Document The purpose of this document is to outline the plan for the execution of the Annual Fund. This document will be updated for future Annual Funds by the end of the school year preceding the Annual Fund year. Background The vision of St. Anthony of Padua Catholic School is to guide the mind, body, and spirit of the next generation of Catholic leaders to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet their full potential as people created in the image of God. (Genesis 1: 27; Matthew 28: 19; John 15: 14; Romans 1: 5; 2 Corinthians 5: 18-20, 10: 5; Revelation 14: 12) We strive to engender a strong sense of Roman Catholic identity, a deep reverence for the sacraments and a lifelong commitment to understanding and joyfully living our faith (CCC 133, ) Our mission is: Enrich each child's development by requiring academic excellence and providing opportunities that challenge students and recognize individual achievement; Develop with parents the moral compass that guides students to love all God's creation and serve humankind with Christ as their model. (1 Corinthians 11:1) (CCC 1959, 2032) In His spirit, we envision St. Anthony of Padua Catholic School as a beacon of light. (Matt 5: 15) The purpose of this document is to establish the plan that will lead the School Annual Fund committee to implement this year s Annual Fund (AF) campaign. In his Declaration on Catholic Education on October 28, 1965, Pope Paul VI stated, Therefore this sacred synod exhorts the faithful to assist to their utmost in finding suitable methods of education and programs of study and in forming teachers who can give youth a true education. It is in that spirit, that the annual School fund campaign supplements our school programs goals by increasing the available funds that tuition cannot cover, avoiding an increase in tuition and contributing to the Tuition Assistance Program, and enabling the school to make critical investments In people, programs, facilities, and technology all for the puporse of making high-quality Catholic education more available to the masses Annual Fund Plan 3

4 Goal of the Annual Fund The goal fo the AF is to raise $150,000 in unrestricted contributions to the school. In doing so, the AF will achieve 100% participation from school staff and families (participation defined as turning in the pledge form, even if a family cannot afford to give). While this more than 50% greater than previous AF results, we believe the school and parish community are poised to make this increase and elevate AF results in future years to come. The general objectives of the Annual Fund each year are to: 1. To build and develop the School s base of donors, including that of the general church community. 2. To establish habits and patterns of giving by regular solicitation. 3. To inform, involve, and bond the constituency of the school, thereby increasing parental and other stakeholder participation and volunteerism. 4. Use the donor base as a vital source of information to identify potential large donors. 5. Promote giving habits that encourage the contributor to make capital and planned gifts.
