Annual Fund Drive

Every year, we conduct an Annual Fund Drive to address the needs of our school.
The monies generated from this Drive support our mission of providing our students and families the very finest Catholic, faith-centered, college preparatory education in a safe and nurturing environment.

The monies raised through the Annual Fund Drive specifically support four critical areas:

• The enhancement and improvement of our spiritual, academic, and extracurricular programs;
• The recruitment and retention of the  finest faculty and staff;
• The upkeep and improvement of the existing grounds and facilities;
• Need-based tuition assistance to deserving students and families who desire this educational experience but may not be able to afford it.

To generate the funds needed to address the areas listed above, we reach out to you, our parents, alumni, parents of alumni, and friends of Garces Memorial, to ask for your financial support.  The contributions we receive from the Garces Memorial community have been and continue to be critical to the over-all success of this Drive.  The difference between what we charge for tuition and what it actually costs to educate one student for one year is approximately $2,700.  We must have the financial support of our community to close that gap.  Your gift will do just that.   I ask that you be as generous as possible when considering the amount of your gift, while certainly giving within your means.

You may submit your payment by sending your contribution to:

Garces Memorial Annual Fund Drive
