K-8 Annual Appeal

K8_Annual_Appeal_LogoThe K-8 Annual Appeal has made aggressive strides over the last several years. These strides are a direct reflection of alumni, parents, and friends making gifts each year. The K-8 Annual Appeal has continued to provide excellence in Catholic faith formation and academics by providing for special projects, the purchase of equipment, and improvement of facilities through its unrestricted gifts.

The K-8 Annual Appeal continues to involve several hundred alumni and parent donors each year. In 2007, a new record was set with the participation of 730 parents, friends, and alums making a gift. The K-8 Annual Appeal has also been responsible for several other enhancements to the system including computers, iPad labs, and other equipment needed to maintain the quality of academic excellence for which we are so well known.

The K-8 Annual Appeal has grown from $76,000 to the record of $282,679 in 2005-06, the final year of the Annunciation Building Project at the Elementary K-3 Campus.

For the convenience of all alumni, parents and friends, the K-8 Annual Appeal accepts Visa, MasterCard, checks and cash to make a gift. Simply charge-by-phone by calling 270-686-8896, or sending your donation to:
