Annual Fund

The Annual Fund is designed to bridge the gap between tuition and the actual cost of providing students a St. Theresa education. Tuition alone does not cover all of the operational expenses of the school. This yearly program is supported by all current St. Theresa families and is a critical component of our fundraising efforts. The School Board asks for an $800 donation per family for each school year. Donations can be made by check, credit card or monthly deductions using FACTS.

A number of Bay Area employers offer company matching programs for charitable contributions as well. Please consider consulting with your employer to find out if they have an eligible program.

Annual Parents’ Club Fundraising Events and Programs

The Titan Read-a-Thon

The annual Titan Read-a-thon is a new program that seeks to both nurture a love of reading in St. Theresa students and raise funds for the school. Classes engage in friendly competition to win prizes, and individual winners vie for top awards and bragging rights. This school-wide program is held in the fall and contributes over $40,000 in funds to support academic excellence, enrichment programs, and important school initiatives throughout the year.

The Holiday Wine Cellar

The Parents’ Club kicks off the holiday season with this festive community fundraising program that offers families a way to give back to the school and, for one lucky winner, restock their wine collection just in time for Christmas entertaining.

Annual Parents’ Club Auction

The St. Theresa School Auction is the Parents’ Club’s biggest fundraiser of the year.  Held in the winter, it is an evening event attended by parents, parishioners and community supporters of the St. Theresa School and Parish.  The Auction raises over $120,000 in funds each year to be used toward school and classroom upgrades, new educational tools and facility improvements.  Each family is asked to volunteer a minimum of five hours on an auction committee.
