Annual Gifts
Annual gifts to St. Francis DeSales High School  make up the ongoing financial support provided by alumni, parents, faculty and staff, parents of alumni, grandparents, and friends every year. These contributions provide a source of income for both the expected and the unexpected opportunities that surface throughout the year, and therefore are needed each fiscal year (July 1 through June 30.)  The school has two drives to support annual gifts: the first is the Holiday Give in November/December and the other in the spring with the Parent and Alumni Giving.

Why is Annual Giving -- and your paricipation -- so important?
Gifts by alumni, parents, past parents, grandparents, faculty, staff, and friends enable St. Francis DeSales High School to immediately act on programs and opportunities, including scholarships, upgrade in technology, curriculum development, student leadership and service opportunities, and support for arts and athletics. Simply put, each dollar you donate directly improves the experience for our talented, unique students.

You Choose where to designate the gift!
When you make a gift, you are welcome to designate your gift to one of the following areas: Academics, Area of greatest need, Capital improvements, Scholarships, Technology, or Theology. *If you choose to split your gift between more than one area, select 'add donation' when prompted.

Making a tax deductible gift of any size is easy.
