Supporting St. Joseph Catholic School

The Development Office works with our community to build and sustain strong bonds of collaboration and support for the school. The department works to acquire resources to provide tuition assistance to students, supply quarterly information to our stakeholders, and provide support for St. Joseph School’s vibrant programs. Ultimately our development office strives to support the on-going goal to plan for our long range vision.

St. Joseph School benefits from the generous support of donors and volunteers. The Development Office promotes a culture of philanthropy which is mirrored in the student body through the many service opportunities in which they participate. Each year, members of the community can show their support for exceptional Catholic college-preparatory education through giving opportunities such as: The Annual Giving Fund, Adopt-A-Student, Bazaar support, Flea Market donations, Endowment & Charitable Trust, and the HOOKS-Helping Out Our Kids’ School.
