Philanthropic support is the backbone of every Catholic school. St. Dominic High School is blessed to have a multitude of benefactors who support the school in a variety of ways. Since tuition only partially covers regular operating expenses, fundraising is vitally important in providing much needed supplemental revenue. Catholic schools play an important role in today's education. To fulfill this role, Catholic schools rely on essential support from alumni, parents, grandparents, and other off-campus friends, as well as from their administrators, teachers, and students.
Support takes on many forms. Schools receive gifts of all sizes, from the modest contribution of a young alum just starting his/her career, to the leadership gift of a wealthy parent, to the bequest of a loyal alumnus. Hundreds of corporations match their employees' and retirees' gifts to education. In addition to financial support, volunteer support is much needed, as well. Parents, alumni, friends, teachers and administrators contribute time and energy to myriad volunteer activities, while students build goodwill for the school through service projects in the surrounding community. Volunteer support helps build some of the most distinctive qualities of our school: shared values and a sense of community and common purpose.
