The Annual Fund kicks-off in the fall and runs through the rest of the school year. It is a solicitation of funds from parents, teachers, and friends of HFCS to assist with the extra-ordinary cost of providing a Catholic Education.
Although parents pay tuition, which is the major source of our funding, it does not cover the true cost of educating a student. Last year, the gap between tuition and the actual cost of educating a student was approximately $2000.00. The revenue provided through the annual fund helps bridge this gap.
We are most appreciative of our benefactors and encourage them to be as generous as possible, so that Catholic Education can continue to be a reality on Galveston Island.
