Annual Eagle Fund
"A Bishop Watterson education forever shapes the type of persons our graduates grow up to be: bright, caring and engaged. It is the mission of Bishop Watterson to make that life-altering experience available to all families who desire to share in it. The Annual Eagle Fund makes that possible." -- John Stock, current and past parent
We are asking that all Bishop Watterson families, alumni and friends prayerfully consider a gift to the Annual Eagle Fund so that we can "Restore all things in Christ."
The third mailing for The Annual Eagle Fund will be arriving in mailboxes this week! Our goal this year is $300,000. Bishop Watterson is currently at 70% of goal with donations totaling $211,575.94. You can give by mailing a check in the envelope provided in the mailing or by clicking here.
The Annual Eagle Fund is the school's largest and most important annual fundraising campaign because it provides unrestricted funding that will be used for this school year's operating costs such as: Bridging the gap between the tuition charged and the actual cost of a Bishop Watterson education; Providing tuition assistance for students in need; Keeping pace with technology; Financing ongoing facility enhancements and upgrades; Maintaining the best learning environment possible
Last school year we raised $255,000 for the Annual Eagle Fund; this year our goal is $300,000. In order to reach that goal, one of our key objectives is to increase the percentage of our alumni and parents that give to the Annual Eagle Fund. Among Catholic high schools nationally, the average alumni giving percentage to an annual fund is 12%; for current parents, the average is 27%. Our averages at Bishop Watterson are 4% for alumni and 21% for current parents. We feel strongly that we are better than average and we are working hard to increase those numbers. All gifts, regardless of the amount are important, very much appreciated and will have an immediate impact on the school!
Think about how you can help us continue to make a difference.
