The Monarch Annual Fund is St. Edward’s cornerstone fundraising initiative and supports the school's current operating budget. Gifts to the Annual Fund provide immediate resources to enrich teaching, inspire learning, and enhance the strong educational experience offered at St. Edward Parish School.
Every gift to the Monarch Annual Fund makes an impact at St. Edward.
2020-2021 Monarch Annual Fund Designations:
Annual Fund designations give you the opportunity to designate your dollars to the area of St. Edward Parish School that resonates with you while supporting programs that are at the heart of a St. Edward education. A gift to any of these areas, or to where the need is greatest, supports the current school budget and ensures a continued tradition of an excellent Catholic education.
Area of Greatest Need
An unrestricted gift allows St. Edward to utilize your contribution where it is most vitally needed, directly benefiting students through the support of faculty, staff, and programs.
Support St. Edward’s commitment to enroll students with a diversity of talents, backgrounds, and experiences by providing tuition supplementation to families who otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford a Catholic education.
COVID Relief Fund
St. Edward endured significant and unplanned expenses in order to open school following all guidelines set by the CA Health Department and CDC. Approximately $50K was spent to prepare for the new school year in the following areas: advanced technology to support online learning; classroom preparation; personal protective equipment; advanced sanitizing supplies; and health room supplies. COVID-related costs will continue through the school year as we adjust to further adhere to rules and regulations set by the CDC.
