Tuition alone does not cover – and never has – the entire cost of educating a student at Pope John. The school has relied on charitable giving since the school’s founding clergy donated their salaries (minus modest living expenses) back to the school to fill the gap. Since then, loyal alumni, parents, friends, and corporations have helped to ensure that this legacy of generosity continues. In this way, the benefits of a Pope John education will continue to produce educated young men and women of character, promise, and purpose.
As an independent Catholic high school, Pope John receives no government resources and no subsidy from the Archdiocese of Boston. Therefore private support is critical to meeting the changing needs of today’s students. As caretakers of a school with a tradition of excellence, we have a responsibility to sustain and enhance this wonderful institution. We ask our community to give generously, to the extent each member is financially able, and to know in advance that every gift, no matter the amount, will make a difference and is important and appreciated.
ANNUAL FUND GIVING
Gifts to the Pope John Annual Fund help fill the gap between tuition and the true cost of educating students, and, at the same time, make much more possible. We are eager to fuel the growth of this fund,through the generosity of alumni, family and friends who recognize the value of a Pope John education and who commit to making the school an annual part of their charitable giving.
Gifts to the Annual Fund may be made online by clicking here or by sending a check to:
Pope John XXIII High School
888 Broadway Everett, MA 02149
Gifts can also be made to the Scholarship or Memorial Funds. For information about other ways of giving including gifts of appreciated assets such as stocks or gifts in-kind, please contact Kelleyrobin Mulvihill, Director of Advancement, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-389-0240 ext. 1500.
Your gift can count twice when you take advantage of employer matching gifts programs. Many businesses and corporations offer the benefit of an employer matching gift program to support the charitable giving of their employees. Pope John XXIII High School encourages you to check with your employer on the availability of matching gifts. Last year alone Pope John received over $20,000 through this type of giving!
