“Go Make a Difference” Annual Fund

Gifts go a long way.


Alumni, parents, parishioners, grandparents, faculty and staff contribute to our greatest resource: the Annual Fund. As the primary fundraiser for the school, every dollar donated goes directly into operating our school. Tax-deductible gifts provide educational resources for students, professional development for teachers and tuition assistance for those in need.

Annual Fund participation is often used as a measure by donors and prospective families of how invested the community is in its school. Your contribution sends a powerful message. We receive gifts from $10 to more than $15,000 each year. Every gift matters.

Paver Program

Support the school and parish community by creating a message, in stone, for all to keep in their thoughts and intentions. This St. Athanasius landscape initiative centers around the well-traveled path connecting the church, grotto and school. Participate in the creation of an engraved stone walkway, by purchasing a brick to lay a foundation for the St. Athanasius community to tread upon for years to come. Paver Program gifts are tax-deductible.

Corporate and Individual Sponsorships

Sponsorship of a school event or underwriting a project allow for campus improvements and core academics. Some companies offer matching gift donations — we can help determine if your contribution qualifies.

Planned Giving & Recognition

Planned gifts and gifts of stock enable us to move forward and into the future. Some provide income and tax benefits. 

Memorial gifts can be made in memory of a loved one; honorariums are a meaningful way to recognize a dear friend, colleague, or loved one on an anniversary, birthday or other special occasion.

Parish Online Giving

St. Athanasius Church benefits from recurring and regular donations of school families and parishioners. Proceeds support ministries, youth services and maintenance of our historic church and parish house.

For more information on giving, please contact Principal Kelly Foyle at (847) 864-2650 or [email protected].
