St. Nicholas relies on the generosity of parents, grandparents, parishioners, and community partners to ensure our students receive an education that honors academic excellence, dedication to community service, and the teachings of the Catholic faith.
We offer opportunities for you to financially support our students and programs through a variety of fundraisers and programs, including:
- Annual Fund
- Guardian Angel Program
Give a Gift Today!
You can donate or pledge to the Annual Fund and Guardian Angel Program anytime during the school year. We are happy to receive your auction sponsorship and procurement donations until the day of the auction. The school accepts cash, check, and credit card payments. You can also use the links below to submit an Annual Fund, Auction, or Guardian Angel donation online. If you choose to pay your pledge in installments, the school will invoice you, or we can set up a recurring payment to your credit card. All contributions are tax deductible and any gift amount is truly appreciated. We hope that you will prayerfully consider supporting these vital programs and campaigns.
You can maximize your gift through a matching gift program. Many employers offer matching gifts for charitable donations. Matching gifts comprise a significant amount of our Annual Fund revenue each year and we are grateful to our supporters for taking the opportunity to stretch their contribution this way.
The Annual Fund campaign helps make tuition more affordable for our families by offsetting the cost to educate each student. It also provides opportunities to enhance our facilities, technology, and curriculum.
Our contributors’ support gives this community an educational experience that offers students excellent academics with an emphasis on the Catholic faith and our calling to serve others. Thank you all for your commitment to our school!
Every staff, PTO, and school commission member has pledged his or her support to the 2017-18 Annual Fund drive. Our goal this year is to raise $60,000. So far, we’ve raised $27,500! We’re also striving for 100% participation from our school families. The higher the percentage of school family participation, the greater chance the school has to receive valuable grant funding. Last year, 91% of school families donated. Please make your pledge by November 15, 2017. Thank you so much for your support.
The first class to reach 100% family participation will be treated to a frozen yogurt party at Menchie’s, courtesy of Sue Nelson. Thanks Sue! Here are the class participation rates to-date:
1st Grade: 25%
2nd Grade: 25%
3rd Grade: 30%
4th Grade: 44%
5th Grade: 64%
6th Grade: 33%
7th Grade: 17%
8th Grade: 83%
Our annual auction is the school’s largest fundraiser. This year’s event will be Saturday, March 10, 2018 at the Connelly Center at Bellarmine.
The generosity of our event sponsors and guests provide important facilities, equipment, and curriculum upgrades. Last year’s auction on May 6 was one of our most successful ever. Thank you for your support!

Guardian Angel Program
As Catholics, we are called to serve others. Our Guardian Angel Program offers a unique opportunity to serve our St. Nicholas community and invest in our future. The program provides tuition assistance to local families who wish to make Catholic education a priority in their lives. Your contribution to this program makes that dream a reality. Since the program began in January 2015, 36 students have received tuition assistance to attend St. Nicholas Catholic School and 19 more have been awarded scholarships for the 2017-18 school year. On behalf of our school families and Guardian Angel scholarship recipients, thank you for your support!
Make a difference in the life of a child – and an entire family – by becoming a Guardian Angel. Your gift to fund Catholic education will help assure no child is turned away from St. Nicholas Catholic School due to hardship. All gifts to the Guardian Angel Program will be used exclusively for tuition assistance to a St. Nicholas Catholic School family in need.
Give the lasting gift of education in the Catholic tradition. Become a Guardian Angel!
