St. Genevieve School Alumni Association


How can we assist St. Genevieve’s in meeting its Advancement Plan?


What is an Advancement Plan?


Modern companies have developed a documentation format that provides for a yearly updated plan which details how money will be raised and sub-divided to meet the future goals of the company.  These plans often describe projected new hirings, investments in new equipment or office facilities, projected new projects that will serve to increase company cash flow, and how the company seeks to measurably make its operations more efficient and profitable.  This documentation format has become accepted by schools such as St. Genevieve’s as a tool to detail how the school seeks to improve the teaching staff, bring new technology into the classroom, make the curriculum more reflective of modern societal needs, and maintain the infrastructure of the school so that students can study in a building that is safe, comfortable, and designed to meet the evolving needs of the St. Genevieve community.  It insures that donation flow into the school will not be utilized in a haphazard, make-it-up-as-you-go-along fashion but will instead be controlled to meet documented needs and guided by written plans with measurable outcomes.


What does the St. Genevieve School Advancement Plan provide for?


The current plan delves into many aspects of operating the school including (but not limited to):

  1. How to utilize marketing techniques that inform the community about the goals, resources, and opportunities that St.Gens can offer the children who attend.
     
  2. What technological advancements and innovative teaching techniques can St. Gens provide that may not be currently found in public schools  within the surrounding area.
     
  3. How do we attract the best teachers to work for St. Gens.
     
  4. How do we plan to expand the student population at St. Gens.
     
  5. How can involvement by the school in community projects help both the students and their families.
     
  6. What new equipment, teaching supplies, and extended training for the faculty can be employed to keep the educational standards at St. Gens at the highest level.
     

Where does the St. Genevieve Alumni Association fit in?


By mutual agreement with St. Genevieve management, all funds raised by the Alumni Association are under the sole control of the school.  None of the donations will funnel back into the arch-diocese fund, therefore all money raised will be used by St. Genevieve School and no one else.  All funds raised will be utilized, in full, according to the Advancement Plan.  There are no slush fund or rainy day accounts where money can be diverted to.  All funds will be used for the sole purpose of meeting the Advancement Plan which is designed to benefit all students equally and none of the donations will be used for funding tuition programs.  


All donations would be tax deductible as determined by federal & state regulations.  The St Genevieve School Alumni Association is an approved 501(c)3 organization.


Why are we reaching out to the St. Genevieve Alumni now?


We have been informed that an anonymous donor has pledged that for each of the next two years, he would provide a yearly $10K match for an equal $10K raised by the Alumni Association.  Yes, this means that in 2019 and 2020 if the Alumni can raise $10K each year then this donor would give an additional $20K over those two years.  Opportunities such as this are rare, and the Alumni Association does not want to miss this two-year window where we can double the benefit to the school.


 It is our hope that the membership of the Alumni Association can grow and provide an ever-expanding resource for making St. Genevieve School a constantly improving educational institution.  Your help and your involvement are needed.  Please join the Alumni Association and please pitch in to help us meet challenge goal set by this anonymous donor.
