What is the Monarch Fund?
Gifts to The Parish School at St. Edward the Confessor Catholic Church Monarch Fund help to bridge the gap between the revenue generated from tuition and the actual cost of educating a student in a safe, nurturing and technologically advanced setting. Foundations often ask for annual fund participation numbers as a measure of an institution’s health. Support from our closest friends sends a signal that St. Edward the Confessor Parish School is a good investment. Your yearly support is a sign of your commitment to all that is The Parish School at St. Edward the Confessor Catholic Church.
How does the Monarch Fund enhance the school?
Each year, members of the Administration and Consultative School Board meet to determine the areas of need. The Monarch Fund was first introduced to our community in January 2015. Below is the history of our Monarch Fund:
2015 Goal: $25,000, Raised: $40,676
2016 Goal: $50,000, Raised: $84,281.79
2017 Goal: $75,000, Raised: $112, 750
The proceeds supported our enhancement and procurement of the following:
STREAM (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics)
Our goal for the 2017-2018 Monarch Fund which runs from July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018 is $125,000 in fulfilled pledges. With this support we will continue augmenting development in three areas:
1) Professional Training and Development for the entire Faculty and Staff;
2) Mathematics Instructional Resources and Manipulative Tools; and
3) Literacy Resources.
