Each year, Saint Joseph’s conducts a Jaguar Fund campaign to raise dollars that are essential to maintain and to enhance our students' education. These funds meet the operating expenses of the school not covered by tuition.
Gifts to the Jaguar Fund are utilized by our school in many ways to support our operating budget and to enrich the day-to-day experience of our students. The Jaguar Fund provides additional resources for many of the programs that make Saint Joseph’s so special.
Examples of Jaguar Fund dollars at work include: sending our faculty members to workshops and conferences, acquiring new music and art materials, and the purchase of computers and software. The funds are also used for the upkeep of and enhancement of our wonderful campus. We may also use Jaguar Fund gifts for sports equipment, team uniforms, and other items needed for our athletic programs.
Did you know?
Tuition covers only about 80% of a student’s Saint Joseph’s education. Like most independent schools, Saint Joseph’s relies upon voluntary annual giving from families and friends to bridge the gap between tuition and operating expenses.
All gifts to Saint Joseph’s Episcopal School are tax-deductible as allowed by the IRS.
Why give to the Jaguar Fund?
A gift to the Jaguar Fund ensures that every student on our campus continues to experience what Saint Joseph’s is known for – outstanding teachers, diverse enrichment programs, extracurricular activities, and most importantly, the academic excellence, leadership, and Christian values that are synonymous with a Saint Joseph’s education.
Your gift, in any amount, will greatly benefit each and every one of our students every day!
