Why are fundraisers necessary?
Tuition covers approximately 81% of the actual annual cost to educate a student. The difference between what is paid in tuition and the other costs to educate our students must be made up by funds provided by the donations to the Annual Fund, the Resurrection Parish, and additional PTO fundraising events.
What is the difference in giving to the Annual Fund versus the PTO fundraisers?
The money raised is all used for the same purpose, to support Resurrection School. Donations to the Annual Fund are specifically used to meet the ongoing educational initiatives of our great school; it assures that we are able to provide an academic and spiritual education that is second to non in the Archdiocese of New York.
The difference between giving to the Annual Fund and purchasing an item at one of the other fundraisers is that 100% of the money given to the Annual Fund is a donation. No merchandise is received for the donation, thus making the donation fully tax deductible. In addition, unrestricted gifts to the Annual Fund provide maximum flexibility to apply funds where they are needed most and facilitate matching contributions from foundations and corporations.
Can I serve on the Resurrection School Foundation Board?
We welcome your support and participation to promote the foundation's success. If interested, please contact the Foundation President, Andrea Cipriani at firstname.lastname@example.org. School parents who express interest may be proposed for election to the Board for the three year term. The Board for each school year is established and voted upon during the first meeting of the academic year.
