FAQ for Annual Fund

Frequently Asked Questions for
The Share the Spirit Annual Fund

What is the Annual Fund?
The Annual Fund is a fundraising campaign to bridge the Gap in what we charge for tuition and what it costs to educate each student.  The Gap this year is $1,092. The Annual Fund supports the day to day operations of the school.

What is North Texas Giving Day?
North Texas Giving Day is a day where the Communities Foundation of North Texas has secured donations from Dallas Foundations to support non-profit organizations that participate in North Texas Giving Day on Sept 14, 2017 by awarding bonus funds for donations over $25.00.

Why doesn't the school charge the full amount for tuition?
In an effort to keep Catholic education affordable, Prince of Peace Catholic School hosts an Annual Fund.

An Annual Fund allows families and supporters to make a tax-deductible donation to the school.

An Annual Fund also allows the school to make the most of corporate matching.  Last year we had over $15,000 in matching funds.


Why should I contribute?
The Annual Fund is the single largest campaign to support operating costs at Prince of Peace Catholic School.  Your donation supports every aspect of a student's life from supporting teachers and the facility to providing materials and technology to allow your students to thrive in our Catholic School. 

How much should I give?
Ideally we ask you to cover the Gap in tuition for your student which is $1,092 per student. If you can give more we greatly appreciate your generosity and support. If you cannot give at the Gap amount we ask that you discern what is right for your family and still donate to the school. It is important to show foundations that our families support our school when asking for grants so our goal is 100% participation.
Every gift counts. Every child benefits.

Is my donation tax-deductible?
Yes your donation is tax-deductible. After donating, you will receive a letter for reporting purposes.

How can my company match my donation?
