At St. Thomas Aquinas High School, we look to the future with 20/20 vision. We know that the need for financial assistance has increased by 20% in the last 5 years. We also view our students’ future with clarity, depth and a peripheral awareness that comes from keeping things in faithful perspective.  We are asking our current donors to consider increasing their gift to St. Thomas Aquinas High School by 20%, and if you have never made a gift to our school, perhaps you will consider a gift of $20.  Your generosity fortifies our mission to be a light in darkness, thereby effecting perfect vison in our students: one where they learn to live by faith, not by sight.  Thank YOU for your support!
The Aquinas Fund is the main source of fund raising at St. Thomas Aquinas. All donations large or small have a critical impact on every aspect of the St. Thomas Aquinas High School experience. Your investment in our students and faculty, and your commitment to our mission, are essential to the continued success of St. Thomas.  With an annual operating budget of over $7 million, over 6% of our revenues comes from our annual fund, the Aquinas Fund.  Donations received by June 30, 2016 are included in this year's campaign.

Recurring Gifts:  As you know, the St. Thomas Aquinas High School Aquinas Fund helps the students in many ways.  From academic programming to athletics to our financial aid program to extracurricular activities, the Aquinas Fund helps to make all of these programs possible, ensuring a transformational experience to all students. We’ve made it even easier to give to the Aquinas Fund. We can now accept Recurring Gifts online – split your gift into easy, budget-friendly monthly installments that can be automatically charged to your credit card.
Why Participation Matters: The percentage of participation in our annual appeal by parents and alumni is a good indication to others of how our community members value St. Thomas Aquinas. When we ask foundations to invest in our school, they look closely at the investment our parents and alumni are willing to make. No gift is too small – your participation in the Aquinas Fund makes a difference. St. Thomas is a 501(c)3 organizations, donations are fully tax deductible as allowed by law.
