Annual Gift Campaign

WE DID IT!!! We reached 98% overall participation from our families and have donations and pledges totaling $202,400.  We have earned an additional $20,000 for St. Rita because of the generosity of our families.  Thank you to all who participated in the Annual Gift Campaign.  Our community has come together for the greater good of all families.  This campaign helps keep tuition increases to a minimum for all families, enabling us to maintain an affordable parish school.


Pizza Party Time!!  This Monday, December 3 is the Pizza Party! 


Once again, congratulations to the following homerooms on reaching 100% participation by the contest deadline!  Thank you for helping the school exceed our goal and reaching over $220,000 in this very important fundraiser.  We will have a choice of pepperoni or cheese pizza for each student (2 slices of pizza per child).  Any other items a student would like for lunch (including drinks) should be brought from home or purchased through the lunch line, as usual. 



























Tuition revenues alone do not cover the full costs of educating our students. Therefore, the school depends on annual contributions from our school families and other supporters during our Annual Gift Campaign to off-set this difference.  Our goal is to raise a minimum of $200,000 and have 100% participation from our school families.  As added motivation for our families, a group of anonymous donors will contribute an additional $20,000 if we reach at least 98% participation and $200,000 by the end of our campaign on September 30. (Donations are accepted to the annual fund year round.)

The video below explains the campaign in more detail.


We will kick-off our 2018 Annual Gift Campaign in conjunction with kicking off a new school year. It will begin on August 20 and it will continue until September 30. The campaign is sponsored by the St. Rita Advisory Council.


“Participation” is defined as:  (1) making a financial pledge online with payment now or in the future or (2) making an online pledge agreeing to pray for our school each day.  Since this campaign’s mission is to raise funds for our school, prayerful consideration and commitment of a monetary pledge is preferred.

The offsetting of the difference in tuition and the actual cost of educating a St. Rita student is called “Bridging the Gap” so you will also hear this campaign referred to as the "GAP Campaign." The actual estimated cost to educate a St. Rita student for the 2018-19 school year is $11,002.  If you are able to completely "Bridge your Gap", please do so.  If not, a suggested minimum donation is $325 per student. 

All homeroom classes that reach 100% participation by September 30 will receive a pizza party! 
Those contributing $1,000 or more will also be invited to the Donor Appreciation Dinner in the fall of 2019.
