Since tuition only partially covers regular operating expenses, annual fundraising is vitally important in providing much needed supplemental revenue. Funds raised from the annual Crusade Appeal and the annual Dinner Auction including the Tuition and Crusader raffles make a strong impact on the operational budget of the school. Gifts from events sponsored by the Athletic Association and the Performing Arts Lovers group including the annual Crusader Golf Classic and Trivia Night provide funds to enhance academics, athletics, performing arts, and the physical plant. Such contributions help bridge the gap between the cost of tuition and the cost of a St. Dominic High School education, keeping tuition affordable for all students.
Memorial & Tribute Gifts
Memorial and tribute gifts support annual giving. They are a wonderful way of memorializing or honoring a friend or loved one.
Gifts to the Endowment
A gift to the endowment will help ensure the continuing availability of affordable Catholic secondary education at St. Dominic High School. All monies contributed to the endowment are restricted to scholarship assistance and continuing education for faculty.
For a number of years, the focus of St. Dominic High School's advancement activities has been the immediate capital needs of the school. Phases I, II, and III of the Crusade for the Future capital campaign were a success and have been completed. The entire St. Dominic community is currently enjoying the fruits of the past capital campaign.
Through planned giving, friends of St. Dominic High School may leave a testamentary gift to the school in their will or estate plan. Membership in the Dominican Society is offered to all who have decided to include St. Dominic High School in their estate planning or have made any kind of deferred gift to the school. The only requirement for membership is to make it known to the school that a provision for a gift has been made.
