Since St. Rose Academy is a private school, independent of the Catholic Diocese of Birmingham,Alabama, it receives no financial support from the diocese or from a parish. As a result, the school depends solely on tuition, fundraisers, and donations to fund its daily operations.
Our most important source of unrestricted funds available is the Annual Fund, a yearly fundraising campaign to support the operation of Saint Rose Academy. The Annual Fund provides operating monies that support the ongoing work at the school and bridge the gap between tuition and the actual cost of educating our students. A successful Annual Fund helps keep tuition costs as affordable as possible for students and their families.
Donations to the Annual Fund are fully tax-deductible and can be paid by cash, check, PayPal, or via stock transfers. Pledges can be paid in monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or in annual installments. The Annual Fund runs concurrently with the fiscal year: July 1 to June 30.
