Fundraising

Thank You for Supporting Alphonsus

Thank you for your commitment to our school community and choosing Alphonsus for your children’s education. We take this responsibility incredibly seriously and value your partnership.

Families are also asked to partake in the school’s development efforts by fundraising. Student-led campaigns for Rocket Run and Rocket Raffle have dominated in the past, but we are aware that families support our school in many other ways such as the Faculty Fund, Annual Fund, and Art & Soul.

As such, all non-deductible contributions to Alphonsus Academy will now be counted toward your $500 family fundraising minimum. This includes Rocket Run, Annual + Faculty Fund, and Rocket Raffle. Art & Soul contributions must remain separate as there are benefits associated with those purchases.

Fundraising Opportunities

Annual Fund

The Annual Campaign for Alphonsus Academy & Center for the Arts is an invitation for our parents, alumni, and friends to support all of the reasons you love AACA. We ask that the first gift you make to our school each year be a monthly or one-time gift to the Annual Campaign.

In addition to tuition, we rely on the generosity of our parents, alumni, and friends to meet our operating needs. The Annual Campaign is an important source of that revenue. Your gift is an investment in our academic excellence, arts-integrated curriculum, and caring Catholic community.

Rocket Run

This fun-run encourages fitness and fun for students of all ages! Students in grades 1-8 will run laps around our 1/3 mile Outside Track (the block around school). Our littlest Rockets in tots, preschool, and kindergarten will run an obstacle course in the gym.

Faculty Fund

Over half of the faculty at Alphonsus Academy & Center for the Arts holds a Master’s degree and the average tenure is 7 years! 

In order to promote staff retention and show our appreciation for our dedicated staff, we offer Christmas and end of year bonuses through our Faculty Fund. 100% of proceeds benefit our staff, so every gift is appreciated!

Art & Soul

Art & Soul is Alphonsus Academy’s largest fundraiser and auction proceeds account for 50% of the event’s revenue. Thanks in large part to the support of people like you; our school is able to offer an excellent education to more than 500 children and a great place to work for our faculty and staff.

Rocket Raffle

As a final, fun way to support the school before heading into summer break, the Rocket Raffle is a student-led ticketed fundraiser which brings in roughly $50,000 to the school. Tickets are only $25 each but can result in winnings of $5,000, $2,500, or $1,000! The winning tickets are pulled at the Year End Celebration for students and families on the last day of school.

Sponsorship

We have developed a new tiered sponsorship platform for families and companies to invest in AACA.

Please consider joining us as a sponsor to ensure the vitality of the Alphonsus Academy mission and our ability to continue serving the community.
