Annual Fund Donations 2020

Updated 12/31/20


As is the case with many privately-funded institutions, Saint James School relies upon donations to its Annual Fund Campaign to help finance necessary improvements that simply cannot be covered by the tuition paid by our families and are not supported by our other funding sources.

Annual fund donations, which come directly to our school, have helped us make many critical improvements in recent years such as bright, energy-efficient windows in the majority of our school and new, energy-efficient roofs over our classrooms and breezeway.  The impact of these improvements has been significant and your support – no matter how large or small – will make a difference!

This year, donations to our 2020 Annual Fund campaign will support school modifications and equipment purchases needed as we look to safely reopen our school classrooms in the fall (2020 Annual Fund Letter).

We hope that you will consider making a tax-deductible donation to our 2020 Annual Fund Campaign to help us fund these important purchases for reopening. There are three simple ways to participate:

1) Mail a donation to:

Saint James School 2020 Annual Fund
73 Park Street
Manchester, CT 06040
(please make checks payable to “Saint James School” and note “Annual Fund” in the comments)

2) Drop off your donation at the school office or church rectory;

3) Make an online donation using a credit card or your PayPal account by clicking on the button below.

For all donations, please include a completed copy of our 2020 Annual Fund Donor Card (click link to view and print).

Matching Gift Programs
Many companies will match their employees’ donations to qualified nonprofit organizations such as Saint James School. Please check to see if your employer will match your gift.
