The Annual Fund drive happens each fiscal year, July 1st through June 30th, to make up the difference between the reasonable tuition price charged for a Saint Rose education vs. what it actually costs to educate a Saint Rose student. The 2015-2016 cost to educate an elementary student this year is $6095, while this year's tuition rate is $5310 (and even less for multiple children). We make up this difference by holding the Annual Fund Drive which provides for educational materials, tuition assistance for those in need, emergency scholarship assistance, technology and all of the needed items not covered by tuition.
The Annual Fund Drive includes proceeds from Starry Night, grants, endowment donations, Choice Gift envelope donations to general fund or tuition assistance fund, and honorary and memorial donations made to the school. Participation in the Annual Fund can also be through gifts of prayer to the school.
