Parent Giving

Gifts to the Santa Catalina Fund from parents and our greater Catalina community help support what we call the “everyday magic” of Santa Catalina. From professional development for our teachers, guest speakers, and field trips, to upgrades in technology, the Santa Catalina Fund serves as a financial backbone for it all.

Every year the Santa Catalina Fund takes place over a six-week time period in the fall. Starting at the beginning of October and ending mid-November. While our main message during those six weeks is PLEDGE NOW, full payment is not due until June 30.

In recent years, participation from Lower and Middle School parents has been growing. A high level of support from our parents is essential when Catalina submits grant requests to foundations. Of course, increased participation across all grades would not be possible without our wonderful team of Santa Catalina Fund parent volunteers who reach out to their fellow parents each fall.
