DEVELOPMENT/ ANNUAL APPEAL

Development Program

The Development Program was founded at St. Aloysius School in 1984, being the first elementary school in the Diocese of Baton Rouge to found such a program. The objectives of the program include:
 

  • To emphasize the mission of the school

  • To develop a broader base of people involvement

  • To secure financial support for the school

 

Two funds are used to accomplish the objectives. The Development Fund and The Endowment Fund. The Endowment Fund is a long-term growth fund. It also houses the Teacher’s Salary Enhancement Fund. Both funds are built by donations through the Annual Appeal, memorial gifts, gifts to specific scholarships funds, special gifts (stocks), and planned giving.

The Annual Appeal
 

The Annual Appeal is a yearly campaign sponsored by the Development Office to seek additional funds for the school and is both long term and current in nature. The Annual Appeal gifts are recognized throughout the entire school fiscal year,
July 1 – June 30. The focus of appeal funds may vary from year to year.

 

Innumerable projects have been completed through the Annual Appeal under the direction of the Development Program. The yearly appeal focuses the generosity into two major categories: to build the Endowment and to provide classroom enhancements.  The following is a partial list:
 

  • Establishment of a Computer Lab

  • Establishment of a STREAM Lab

  • Establishment of an Art program

  • Grant awards from various companies and industries

  • Extensive purchases of educational enhancements and supplies

  • Furniture, fixtures, equipment, and capital expenditures for the school buildings
