Did you know that tuition alone only covers 79% of the cost to educate a student at Father Ryan? The Annual Fund helps to bridge the gap by supplementing revenue received from tuition and fees, endowment income, and parish subsidies so that the school can meet its operating costs and help keep tuition increases to a minimum.
Monies raised through the Annual Fund are applied where needed and subsidize areas such as faculty/staff salaries and benefits, facility and grounds maintenance, and co-curricular programs in the yearly general operating budget.
Our goal for the 2016-2017 Annual Fund is $675,000. Every gift, no matter the size, makes a difference in the lives of our students every day. We hope that our parents, alumni, faculty and staff, grandparents, alumni parents, and friends will make the Father Ryan Annual Fund a philanthropic priority.
