The SPSV Fund (Annual Fund) support programs in the current school year like campus ministry retreats, student leadership through Linked Crew, and professional development for faculty.
Current SPSV parents participate in the annual fund through the Parent Pledge program. Contributions are 100% tax-deductible and ensure that all students receive the very best educational experience possible. Our most important goal is 100% participation by all families, including families receiving financial assistance.
All SPSV Fund gifts (both Annual Fund and Parent Pledge Gifts) can be made throughout the fiscal year (July 1 - June 30) and are reflected in The Bridge published in early fall.
What is the Parent Pledge program?
The Parent Pledge Program helps ensure that the highest standards of excellence are met for the vital components needed to educate students in this academic year. Since all Parent Pledge gifts support our current freshman, sophomore, junior and senior students as they strive to achieve their best, it is our hope that St. Patrick - St. Vincent will be your highest giving priority while your children are students here. All parents are asked to participate so we can achieve 100% participation—an important message we take to alumni and foundations when asking for their support.
What are the benefits of participating in the Parent Pledge program?
Parent Pledge gifts support important initiatives in the current school year and help assure that all needs are met to make each year an exceptional experience. These initiatives will enhance the educational experience of every student attending St. Patrick - St. Vincent Catholic High School. An additional benefit is that gifts to the Parent Pledge Program are 100% tax deductible.
How much should I give?
Annual gifts to the Parent Pledge Program range from $500 - $5,000. Only your family can decide what your Parent Pledge gift should be. We realize some families make great sacrifices to send their children here and ask that all parents, including those receiving financial assistance, make a commitment that is personally significant to your family so that we can reach our goal of 100% participation.
What if I have more than one child at SPSV?
While we realize that sending multiple children to St. Patrick - St. Vincent Catholic High School constitutes a major financial commitment; the cost to educate each child remains the same. Therefore, we ask parents to make a pledge for each of your children for the time they are enrolled here.
Can I pay my pledge monthly?
Yes. Parents have the option of paying their pledges annually or monthly. Families who select the monthly payment plan must use our Direct Debit Program. This is an easy way to budget your payments. The Development Office at SPSV automatically debits your bank account or credit card on the 22nd of each month for your agreed upon payments. If the 22nd falls on a holiday or weekend, the debit will be processed on the first banking business day following the 22nd. Parent Pledge gifts can be structured as monthly amounts or can be made as one-time gifts.
