The 2014-2015 Circle of Faith Annual Fund is designed to enhance the vision of Roncalli High School both now and for the future. Four areas of need have been identified through a strategic planning process. These projects will address some immediate needs of the school while also planning for enhancements for our current and future students. It is through the generous support of our alumni, parents and friends who make it possible to provide a Catholic education for our 1,180 students and commitment to our belief in the divine giftedness of each individual student. Our mission is to help our students discover their gifts and to inspire them to use those gifts in service to the world. Thank you for your past support and for assisting us in planning for the future of our Roncalli family.
Each area that will be funded through the 2014-2015 Circle of Faith Annual Fund is highlighted on the following pages:
Over the past ten years, Roncalli High School has had the proposed classroom addition in both the strategic and the facility plans. Our last capital campaign (that began in 2002) went over goal by $1 million and allowed us to complete everything that was a part of that campaign. Although that campaign was greatly successful, there was still an item from the original plans that needed to be finished --- building new classrooms. In the spirit of how we strive to complete our plans at RHS, we would like to build these classrooms over the next several months. Funds raised from the 2014-2015 Annual Fund would allow these six classrooms to be ready for the 2015-2016 school year.
As an educational institution, teacher training and continuing education are vital to our academic programs. The Annual Fund will provide additional funds for faculty conferences and to assist faculty and staff for a pilgrimage to walk in the footsteps of our namesake Saint John XXIII.
Future needs of Roncalli High School can be supported financially through the school’s endowment. Adding funds each school year will grow the endowment so that the interest gained can be used to provide tuition assistance. Also, Roncalli families are working at Lucas Oil Stadium and Victory Field in the concession stands as a part of our Future Foundations program. The money that Roncalli earns from these events will be invested in the school’s Financial Aid Endowment. This year’s Annual Fund will match that money from the Future Foundations to the Financial Aid Endowment.
We have experienced an increase in the number of students attending Roncalli High School, which increases our need for financial assistance to offset the cost of tuition for RHS families in need of aid. The Annual Fund will provide funds that will be disbursed to families requiring financial assistance. Other fundraisers throughout the school year, Walkathon and Rebelation, will also contribute to tuition assistance.
