Dear Saints Families,

As we begin the 2019-2020 school year, the 50th anniversary of St. Louis Catholic High School, we remain committed to building a culture of philanthropy that will keep StLouis Catholic vibrant for not only years, but generations to come.

In past years, Saints sports and activities have operated with a transactional approach because they were funding their own programs.  Now, we have entered a new age in Advancement – one that emphasizes a philanthropic approach, committed to stewardship and cultivation.  Now, the school’s operating budget funds all sports and clubs.

To better explain the contrast, we have built a “past and present” graphic to illustrate the many fundraisers our families were asked to do in the past and how we have streamlined the approach to better serve our students.

So, what are we asking of our families this year?

  • Give of your time – “Volun-serve” at the gates and help sell concessions (we rely on this income as part of our budget)
  • Purchase any consumable items that your student gets to keep (example: shoes, shirts, athletic wear, etc.)
  • In-kind gifts are a wonderful way to contribute to your child’s sport or club (example: sign up to feed your child’s team or club before or after an event)
  • Advance the mission of StLouis Catholic by: giving to the Saints Fund, supporting our two signature events, and/or becoming part of the Patron Saint Business Alliance
