Annual GAP Giving


The Annual Gap Fund is an ongoing fundraising effort to secure gifts from current families, alumni, past parents, and grandparents and bridges the difference between tuition and actual costs incurred to educate each child.

Annual Fund dollars are used to support St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic School’s operating budget. That means they pay for books in the library; basketballs, hula hoops, and baseball bats; a favorite teachers’ salary; paint brushes, play costumes and pottery clay; Petri dishes and microscopes; online learning tools and classroom manipulatives; sacramental preparation and school Masses; and much, much more.

Tax-deductible Annual Fund giving corresponds to STA’s fiscal year, not the calendar year. That is, the Annual Fund campaign opens on July 1 of each year and ends on June 30 of the following year. Nearly 10% of the school’s total operating budget came from Annual Fund giving last year.

Our goal is for the Annual Gap Drive to reach 100% participation of all school and parish families and get support from our alumni, family, and friends.

By bridging the gap through fundraising, tuition stays affordable allowing more parish families the opportunity to choose a Catholic education for their children.


Please make your contribution to the Annual Gap Drive today.
