What is the Saint John's Fund?

The Saint John’s Fund raises unrestricted and restricted dollars that directly support the operating budget of the school each year. Alumni contribute 80% of the dollars raised.The Parent Fund is part of the Saint John’s Fund and raises approximately 15% of the overall SJ Fund dollars.  Gifts made to the SJ Fund provide immediate support for every part of the Saint John’s experience, including academic programs, athletics, the arts, financial aid, and campus ministry. Support of the SJ Fund provides immediate relief to the operating expenses in the year in which it is given.

In 2016-2017, the SJ Fund raised $1.335 million. Gifts ranged from $5 from a graduating senior to leadership gifts of $1,000 or more. In total, those contributions from over 2,800 donors worked together to help provide a solid financial foundation for Saint John’s High School.

Our fiscal year runs from July 1 through June 30 each year. Thank you for making Saint John’s High School a priority this year and every year. Your support of the Saint John’s Fund proves essential to enabling our school to continue to be an affordable, relevant, and premier preparatory school.
