DEVELOPMENT

St. Agatha Catholic School development is a community wide mission of expanding our enrollment, maintaining a solid connection with alumni, solidifying a bond between school and parish, building a strong financial reserve to ensure the long-term future success of the school and bridge the gap between the actual costs of educating a student and what we receive from tuition.

The Friends of St. Agatha was founded in 1993 to help ensure the viability of St. Agatha Catholic School by providing sustaining income to offset the increased costs of providing a quality Catholic education. The original founders and volunteers went door to door to secure pledges from the community to support the school. Since its inception the Friends of St. Agatha Trust has provided nearly one million dollars in operational support for the school. This support has enabled our school to continue its mission and offer a Catholic education to those who otherwise lack the ability to pay full tuition.Generous gifts from the Wizer and Tennant Families have allowed the trust to evolve and offer income from a professionally managed investment portfolio in addition to the sustaining gifts given by our members. A volunteer board and manager help ensure that over 99% of all income is returned to the school.The Friends of St. Agatha Trust is available currently for those who are considering dedicated and legacy gifts to benefit our school.
