Parents Annual Giving Event (PAGE)
Click here to make a donation online.Each year, parents of all CHS students are asked to make a financial contribution, in addition to tuition, through the Parents Annual Giving Event (PAGE). These gifts are designated to meet the operational needs of our school and support the charism of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart and the mission of Catholic High School.What is PAGE?
PAGE stands for Parents Annual Giving Event, and is an opportunity for parents to invest and partner in their son’s education on a tax-deductible
basis. The 2012-13 school year marks the 28th PAGE appeal.How are PAGE gifts used?PAGE gifts go directly into the school’s operational budget.
They are used to fund teacher salaries and benefits, technology infrastructure, technology in-service for teachers and other aspects of the school's daily operation.Why doesn’t CHS just increase tuition?
As with all Brothers of the Sacred Heart Schools, CHS strives to remain cost-accessible to as many families as possible. CHS is very blessed to have parents, alumni and friends that believe in the vision and value of a Catholic High education. A strong and successful PAGE program enables tuition to remain at a level that is achievable for all CHS families.
What is the difference between tuition and registration paid by each student and the actual cost of his education?For the 2012-13 school year, this difference is $2,030. This is referred to as the “Gap.”
What are the goals for PAGE?The goal for PAGE 28 is 100 percent parent participation and $500,000 in gifts and pledges.
Is a PAGE gift mandatory?All PAGE gifts are free-will donations. However, it is hoped that 100 percent of the families will participate as 100 percent of our students directly benefit from gifts to PAGE.
How much do you expect me to give?
Ideally we would love for each family to make a gift in the amount of $2,030, the "Gap." It is our belief that all families can participate at some level. We realize that everyone is blessed with different giving capacities, and our hope is each family will prayerfully consider a gift at a level appropriate for their family and value of the education their son is receiving from Catholic High.Will I be recognized for my contribution?
Yes, your name (not the amount of your gift) will be included in the Principal's Newsletter, which is published monthly.
