Choir of Angels (COA) is our annual appeal, and it is the first and most important fundraising effort because it is built directly into the school's current operating budget. Holy Family's financial model is in line with many private schools in the nation. We face the challenge of tuition and fees covering 80-90% of the operating expenses and covering the remaining 10-20% with donations. This is often called the GAP. COA helps to control tuition increases, making Catholic education affordable to all families in our community. These gifts are used immediately, having a direct impact on the daily lives of our students.
The school community of Board members, faculty and staff, friends, alumni parents, grandparents, and parents are asked to make a gift to the appeal. This is the most efficient way for our community to support Holy Family. All school families are asked to participate in the full extent they are financially able. Please join us in reaching 100% participation from the entire school community. You can pledge now and pay later. COA runs from July 1, 2019, to June 30, 2020, in conjunction with the school's fiscal year. Make your pledge during this time and payments can be made at your convenience online or via FACTS, check, stocks and matching gifts. Thank you for your commitment to Holy Family and please contact the Development Office for further assistance.
In an effort to increase funding that allows us to respond to COVID-19, you can designate your annual appeal gift towards tuition assistance or area of greatest need. These gifts will be designated to assist the many challenges this pandemic presents for our school and our families.
