The Saint Matthew School Annual Fund provides support for the programs of the school, because tuition and parish subsidies do not cover the financial resources required to provide an exceptional education for our children. Because the funds are unrestricted, they are available for current needs, giving the administration the flexibility to respond to challenges and opportunities throughout the year. In past years, funds have been used to expand the middle school math program to accommodate different learning styles, teachers have participated in professional development programs to enhance and broaden their skills, and middle school offerings have expanded to include Model UN, Drama/Forensics, Science Olympiad and Mathletes.
A robust Annual Fund provides that margin of excellence that distinguishes Saint Matthew from other schools. The current year’s goal is $125,000, but more importantly, to increase parent participation to 100% and join the faculty and Board who have participated at that level for the past six years.
