Donation and Support
Your gift benefits our students today and our leaders of tomorrow.
St. Nicholas School is always seeking better ways to expand the educational opportunities offered to our students, to further maintain our high academic standards, and update our equipment and facilities. Like nearly every private school, we require additional funds beyond the revenue provided by the annual tuitions to accomplish these goals. We must rely on fundraising and donations. Our parent organization, the St. Nicholas Boosters Club, accomplishes much through their annual fundraising activities. The following are ways you can support St. Nicholas School:
Unity in Community symbolizes the combined efforts of both St. Nicholas School and the Church communities joining together to raise funds to renovate our Auditorium and Gymnasium. As of October 2010, our campaign has already raised over $600,000 in donations of the $750,000 needed to meet our goal. The renovations were begun in April and are almost complete. We still have a few finishing touches to complete, such as additional speakers for our sound system in the auditorium and the bleachers in the gymnasium.
The Annual Fund
Contributions to the Annual Fund support all areas of the operating budget and enhance the education of our children.
The Annual Fund provides:
- Competitive salaries and benefits for faculty
- Quality classroom resources and materials, including computer technology and software, as well as new updated textbooks
- Expanded athletic program
- Extracurricular art and music
- Maintenance and repair of school facilities and grounds
- Unforeseen expenses that may arise throughout the year
The Scholarship Fund
St. Nicholas School strives to attract a diverse student body of the best students. Our scholarship program aims to support this effort and provide aid to deserving students who might not otherwise be able to afford a St. Nicholas School education.
The Endowment Fund
Endowment funds provide a strong financial base for the school and ensure its future financial security. Interest income is generated from the principal fund to be used as needed to attract and retain outstanding faculty or further support the operating budget as specified above under Annual Fund.

The Box Tops for Education program offers schools a way to earn extra money by collecting tabs from food items their students' families already buy. Some General Mills products carry the Box Tops for Education logo, which families can clip and send to the school. These can then be submitted to General Mills, and each box top earns the school 10 cents. The more students participating in the program, the more money you can raise for the school.
