The St. Joseph School Development Office works to ensure a lasting future for St. Joseph School through alumni relations, grant writing, special events, communications and public relations, and the Annual Fund. Over the past two years, the Annual Fund provided a new school bus for the school and parish, with over $150,000 donated from individuals and businesses. In past years, the Annual Fund has contributed to the Elementary School playground, a Kindergarten aid, new science textbooks, tuition assistance, curriculum updates, and technological upgrades, including teacher and classroom computers, graphing calculators, an intercom, and an updated computer lab. We are excited to announce that this year the Annual Fund will be designated toward technology.
A large part of the Annual Fund’s success can be contributed to the many hard-working people who believe in the value of and commitment to the integration of Faith, Learning, and Living. These achievements through the years would not have been possible without the support of contributions to the Annual Fund. We are blessed with supporters who are very aware of the challenges facing society and who believe St. Joseph School meets a need and makes a difference.
We now invite you to help the Development Office continue its work for generations to come by prayerfully considering an investment in the Annual Fund. Annual giving is a benevolent way to ensure that the mission and vision of St. Joseph School grows. It is the best kind of investment that we can make in our young people that will keep on giving for their lifetimes.

After the Parish investment to the school, the Annual Fund is the primary vehicle for supporting the school’s operating needs each year and the most fundamental way you can support the mission of St. Joseph School. The Annual Fund helps to bridge the gap between tuition and the cost of educating our students. We are very fortunate that St. Joseph Parish supports our school so strongly, but there are many costs associated with running the school.
This is why we are asking you to support the St. Joseph School Annual Fund Drive – to narrow the gap between the amount St. Joseph School receives in tuition and its actual operating costs. Without this effort, where would the money come from? We don’t want to raise tuition costs; we want to keep Catholic school as affordable and accessible as possible for all families.
This year we will be furthering our leadership role in technology. In the past 8 months, we have given 3 technology tours to administrators and teachers from around the state and facilitated a technology professional development session on our campus for Arkansas non-public schools. Annual Fund dollars will help to purchase the necessary bandwidth we need and more iPads for student learning.
