What is the Annual Fund? The Annual Fund is an organized campaign appeal for general operating funds for the Bosco Catholic School System. It is comprised of gifts from alumni, parents, grandparents, faculty and staff, friends and area businesses. Why is it needed?

Why make a gift? Only with generous and consistent support can the Bosco Catholic School System provide and maintain the highest quality educational experience possible for our students today and in the future, thus helping them become the best they can be, both intellectually and spiritually. . . .

They like the concept of a fund that is guarded and invested separately from other assets so the principal of the fund will stay intact. Only the income or a portion thereof will be used to support Bosco. 2. A Positive Legacy . When donors attach their names to an endowment fund, they create an enduring legacy that will outlive them and . . .
