The Pittsburgh Diocese mandates that 10% of a school’s operating budget must be raised through fundraising.
For St. Louise, this equates to approximately $230,000 a year. To meet this fundraising goal, each family is responsible for raising/contributing $600 during the school year. Annual fundraising provides the necessary funds to support the operational, academic, extracurricular, and special programs at St. Louise. There are many opportunities to reach your Family Share fundraising requirement, often without any out of pocket expenses. If we exceed the school’s Diocesan mandate for fundraising, we may utilize the excess amount for special projects and renovations to the school.
