The SFCCS Advancement Program will now focus on cultivating new financial opportunities, strengthening alumni relations, and moving the school forward in the community. Two main programs that will be the focus of the new Advancement Program will be the Annual Fund and the Foundation. The definition of these school programs are:
St. Francis School Annual Fund
This is the general fundraising account of the Advancement Program. The money from these donations can be used for a number of different school areas, such as specified projects, maintenance issues, tuition assistance, budget concerns, and donations to the St. Francis School Foundation. This is a fund that participants will make a donation to as an annual pledge either with our mailings or through our Annual Fund Online Giving Portal.

St. Francis School Foundation
This is the future-planning account of the Advancement Program. Donations from this program will not be used for any immediate needs, but will instead be allowed to grow to ensure the future of St. Francis. This fund will flourish from donations, money from the Annual Fund, and the One Day of Giving Program.
Donations can be made at our Foundation Online Giving Portal.
We are also excited to introduce the St. Francis Giving Levels, where donors to our school are recognized for their extreme generosity. The added amounts that benefactors donated to both the Annual Fund and Foundation will be the determination of the benefactor’s giving level. The St. Francis Giving Levels are as follows:
- Founders Society: $25,000 and above
- Father Flynn Society: $10,000 to $24,999
- Father Bandiera Society: $5,000 to $9,999
- Trojan Society: $2,500 to $4,999
- Red & Black Society: $500 to $2,499
- Alumni: $100 to $499
- Friend: $1 to $99
If any current student’s family, community member, or alumni of St. Francis who would like to donate, has any further questions, or would like to discuss further donation options, please contact Advancement Director Rachel Vitt at (304) 291-5070 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
