SJSEF 2014 Annual Report

  1. 1. 2014
  2. 2. We, members of the St. James School Education Foundation, believe firmly in the profound role of Catholic education in helping us fulfill our parental obligation of forming children who follow Jesus Christ. We recognize that Catholic education has been a special gift for the Church in the United States, but in the last fifty years it has been threatened financially, as demonstrated by closings of elementary and secondary schools throughout the country. St. James School Education Foundation was founded to secure the future of Catholic education in St. James parish, ensuring that primary education, enlivened by our religious faith, will be passed on to coming generations. Building on the current success of St. James School, we strive to provide for its financial security. As part of ensuring the future of SJS, we recognize the need to invest annually in the school. Mindful that the school’s faculty is its primary strength, we support the school budget at a level that facilitates just compensation for faculty. The SJS programs and projects that SJSEF funds are designed to enhance the education of all SJS students.
  3. 3. St. James School Education Foundation (SJSEF) passed three milestones this year. One was reaching $1.5 million in assets. Our assets have allowed us to make significant contributions to the school over the last five years, including the following during the last fiscal year.  $80,000 for educational enrichment programs (see the graphs on the following pages)  $22,630 for the purchase of 8th grade laptop computers  Sponsored a hands-on robotics program for all students  Sponsored a speaker on credit protection for parents Clearly, the Foundation assets allow us to serve dual purposes: (1) providing current educational program support that benefits all St. James students, as well as (2) ensuring the future of a very high quality Catholic education in St. James Parish. Our second milestone was a decade of operations. When the SJSEF founders began this organization ten years ago, they did so to ensure that St. James School would continue thriving into the future. Since then, SJSEF has grown in supporters, assets, and service to the St. James community. Our third milestone is two advances in organizational maturity. Last year we doubled the size of the Executive Board and sought a wider variety of experience and leadership – educational, business, civic, finance, and church. Also, two of the Executive Board members, Mark Sur and Lynn Busia, have recently formed the 2020 Foundation Council that will develop a vision for education at St. James in 2020. These milestones mark progress in the life of SJSEF, but the true success of the Foundation is seen in the vibrant participation of SJS parents and other parish and community benefactors. In addition to supporting the mission of SJSEF financially, many of our participants contribute their talent and time through the work of the SJSEF boards and committees. Today, the Foundation plays a vital role in the St. James Church and School community, one that complements the Parent Association in supporting the Principal and School faculty as they continue to make St. James a truly great Catholic elementary school. We wish to thank all of you who have helped SJSEF grow. Your financial support really DOES make a difference. The School community will remember all of our benefactors in their prayers. Please remember all the benefactors of St. James Church and School communities in your prayers. Gratefully yours, Dan Houston, Ph.D. EXECUTIVE BOARD Lynn Busia Philip De Souza Stella Desjardins Mary Hellen Diarte Dan Houston Msgr. Mike Meyers Cindy Scotto Mark Sur
