Service & Fundraising
SERVICE AND FUNDRAISING
In order to meet the costs of running the school, we rely on several sources of income – tuition, fees, fundraising and the donations received from the Faith In Our Future Annual Giving Campaign. In an effort to keep our expenses low, we require that all Assumption School families perform service hours for those “jobs” for which we would otherwise have to hire staff.
Below are the general guidelines for Service, Fundraising and the Annual Giving Campaign. There are many ways families can meet these commitments and It is our hope that that these opportunities allow us to strengthen our community environment by building relationships among families while working towards a common goal. Detailed information will be provided to each new Assumption family at the beginning of each school year.
Annual Family Obligations:
- Participate in 30 hours of service
- Meet minimum fundraising requirement
- Contribute to Faith In Our Future Annual Giving Campaign
Fulfilling the service hour commitment gives each family an opportunity to be a part of their child’s Catholic education first-hand. Our program ensures that all families are involved equally in the responsibility of maintaining our school.
Every Assumption family is required to complete a minimum of 30 hours of service between September and June. Families who choose not to fulfill their service obligation will be billed $600.00 in May 1.
Assumption families are required to generate a minimum of $850.00 profit annually from the various opportunities listed below. Please note that each opportunity generates a different amount of profit actually donated to the school. If a family falls short of the $850.00, a 10% surcharge will be added to any amount owed at the end of the academic year.

FAITH IN OUR FUTURE ANNUAL GIVING CAMPAIGN
Each year Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary School asks members of the community to contribute to the Faith In Our Future Annual Giving Campaign. The purpose of the Annual Giving Campaign is to generate funds to cover those expenses that tuition and other fundraisers do not. We ask each family to contribute according to their means but all are expected to give some amount. 100% participation from school families is expected because foundations require it for all grant recipients. Over the years, Faith In Our Future donations have funded tuition assistance for families in need, major capital improvements and computer and much more.
