The fundraising year begins on March 1st and ends on February 28th (or 29th in leap years). Each St. Philip family in Grades K-8 has a Fundraising Quota (FRQ) of $550 annually. Families may opt out of their fundraising responsibility by paying a $550 fee directly to the school on March 1. Most families choose to raise the money throughout the fundraising year and easily meet or exceed their goal. If a family does not meet their fundraising goal by the end of the cycle, the are required to pay the balance.
St. Philip School requests that each family volunteer 20 hours of service each year.
Families may opt out of this requirement by paying an annual fee of $200.
Families who volunteer, but do not fulfill their 20 hour requirement, will pay a balance of $10 per unserved volunteer hour at the end of the annual cycle.
The volunteer and fundraising cycle runs from March 1st though the last day of February of the following year.
