St. Anthony Tri-Parish Catholic School Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization separate from St. Anthony Tri-Parish Catholic School.
St. Anthony Tri-Parish Catholic School Foundation was incorporated in 2003 with the intent purpose of supporting St. Anthony Tri-Parish Catholic School for the long-term.
Endowment accounts were created through family scholarship donations as well as the substantial E.D.G.E. endowment (Education, Development, & Growth Endowment). The EDGE campaign in the early 2000s was a fundraising effort to raise $3 million for the purpose of supporting teacher salaries and tuition assistance.
The next large endeavor by the foundation and other entities was to raise the substantial funds for constructing the new school (The Building Fund Campaign).
In 2011, to ensure the long term financial viability of St. Anthony Tri-Parish Catholic School, the JOY Fund was formed by a group of donors willing to offer a 1:1 challenge grant of $3.5 million. The 777 campaign consisted of the 7 Glories of God; $7M in 7 years. With the challenge match completed in February 2018, the $7 million JOY Fund Endowment provides tuition assistance on a yearly basis to the school.
Over the past two school years, the Foundation has granted over $1 million in assistance to St. Anthony Tri-Parish Catholic School. We are focused and committed to supporting the financial needs of St. Anthony Tri-Parish Catholic School.
The Board of Directors shall consist of at least six individuals and not more than fifteen, three of whom shall be ex-officio (the Pastors of St. Anthony of Padua, Our Lady of Fatima and St. Patrick’ Catholic Parishes), voting members, and the remainder of whom shall be selected in a manner determined by the Bylaws of the Foundation.
