Support SJCS

We cannot do it without YOU!

Saint Joseph Catholic School has a tradition of successful fundraising through our development efforts including our Saints Fund and several PTO-led fundraising projects. However, we cannot continue to flourish without the support of our entire school community of students, parents, parishioners, local businesses, and those friends who believe strongly in the mission of Catholic education.

Please view the ways in which you can help us continue to provide a strong academic curriculum and faith-based education that teaches our children to live according to gospel values.

Other Ways You Can Support St. Joseph Catholic School

What is the Saints Fund?

Saints Fund
The Saints Fund is our annual fund, an ongoing campaign that allows families, grandparents, faculty, alumni, friends, and parishioners the opportunity to financially assist in the school’s operational well-being. Each year, the school applies the Saints Fund monies to the area(s) of greatest need within Saint Joseph Catholic School.

How Will Your Gift be Used?

All gifts to the Saints Fund are unrestricted funds. Each year, the school advisory council, principal, and pastor determine where these dollars will be spent based on the priorities generated from their strategic planning efforts. These areas include but are not limited to campus improvements, enhancing a chosen department, providing for continued faculty development, and offering tuition assistance.  All Saints Fund proceeds remain in the school.

Past Saints Fund gifts have been used to: hire a Campus Minister, supplement other teacher positions, buy computers, SMART boards, and new technological infrastructure, and enhance teacher training and classroom reading libraries. These funds have sustained us when emergency repairs were needed to our roof and HVAC. Tuition dollars only cover a portion of what is needed for our school to be successful. The Saints Fund bridges the gap to make our goals a reality.

Run with the SaintsSaint Joseph Catholic School created the Run with the Saints 5K in an effort to raise money for and awareness of our school, while also raising money for the Saint Vincent de Paul food pantry. Typically held in January, this beautiful run through the Shandon community around our school was a success at its first step. Hundreds of runners have taken to the start line to enjoy exercise and fellowship. With the fastest finishers even taking home some cash!

We have been honored to receive generous sponsorships from our community’s biggest supporters, helping to make this race a must-attend for even the city’s most elite runners. In its first year alone, the Run with the Saints was ranked as one of the top 20 races in South Carolina.

Sponsorship information for 2024 will be available soon.
