The future of Catholic school education depends on the entire Catholic community embracing wholeheartedly the concept of stewardship of time, talent, and treasure, and translating stewardship into concrete action. ~ Renewing Our Commitment to Catholic Elementary & Secondary Schools in the Third Millennium, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops
Current Goals for the Fundraising Efforts for the Alliance
Newly adopted State of California mathematics textbooks for all Alliance Schools
for academic year 2008-2009, over 2200 books - $184,000
Professional Development for all faculties in Differentiated Instruction - $166,066
Family Discounts - in most AMDCS discounts given to families for siblings, or lower rates charged for parishioners, is an unfunded item in their budget. While a mission component, this shortfall in operating income can be a hardship on the schools and faculty. Forty-five percent of the students enrolled in AMDCS schools receive tuition assistance from BASIC Fund, the Archdiocese, and generous foundation and individual donors.
The AMDCS Strategic Plan calls for the establishment of an endowment to support tuition assistance by July 2011. This will provide financial assistance to the most needy families in our community.
The AMDCS Strategic Plan calls for the establishment of an endowment to support the ongoing capital improvement needs of the member schools by July 2011. The days when the parish community could build and maintain schools buildings have passed us by! Parents who struggle to pay tuition are not capable of providing for the facilities’ needs and keep their child enrolled in our schools. An endowment that provides annual resources will complement the master site plan under development.
