21-22 Monarch Annual Fund
The Monarch Annual Fund provides the flexibility we need to respond to new opportunities and challenges. This year’s Monarch Annual Fund will directly support our school’s biggest assets.
Tuition keeps our school GOING. The Monarch Annual Fund keeps our school GROWING.
Your donations will support various academic programs, enrich student life, opportunities to engage with guest speakers and allow for ongoing curriculum enhancements. Past annual fund proceeds have directly supported the annual STREAM Nights, Campus Ministry program, Makerspace upgrades, Brian Lies author visit, and a new ceramics kiln.
Faculty & Staff Opportunities
Your contributions help us invest in our most highly-regarded asset, our teachers. Your donations will support appreciation programs, degree advancement, professional enrichment opportunities, and classroom resources for our faculty & staff. Together, we support our teachers in fully engaging in their professional growth so they may continue to teach our students with continued purpose and passion.
Your donations will support ongoing technology upgrades and upkeep of our beautiful campus and facilities. Our library renovation is our most recent campus enhancement that was supported through the Monarch Annual Fund. Approximately $90K was spent to prepare for the new school year in the following areas: advanced technology to support online learning; iWave air purifier “scrubbers” installed in HVAC units; classroom preparation; personal protective equipment; advanced sanitizing supplies; and health room supplies.
Our Monarch Tuition Assistance program will remain a cornerstone of the annual fund. The increase in financial aid requests was at an all-time high this year with approximately 15% of St. Edward students receiving some level of financial assistance. The goal of our tuition assistance program is to provide support to families and students who might not otherwise be able to afford a Catholic education.
