Annual Fund

Did you know that tuition only covers 81% of educating a Father Ryan student? As the school's number one fundraising priority, the Annual Fund provides significant and immediate annual revenue and bridges the gap by supplementing 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.

With your ongoing support, we can: continue to enroll qualified students from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds; provide the remuneration necessary to attract and retain an exceptional faculty; implement ongoing technological upgrades; maintain campus facilities, and enhance academic, co-curricular and athletic programs.

We ask that our parents, alumni, faculty and staff, grandparents, alumni parents, and friends will make the Father Ryan Annual Fund a philanthropic priority.

For more information about the Annual Fund and the impact of your support, please contact Angie (Jacobson) Coffey '95, Annual Fund Manager at (615) 269-7926.
