St. Andrew School Foundation

Our History

The St. Andrew School Foundation was established in 1988 to develop ways to bridge the widening gap between what parents can afford to pay in tuition costs versus the actual costs of operating St. Andrew the Apostle School.

Specifically, the foundation is building an endowment, the income of which will supplement the school’s budget, primarily in providing tuition assistance and supplementing faculty salaries.

The Foundation is an unincorporated, non-profit parish organization, operating under a foundation constitution and by-laws. It directs its efforts toward the following goals:

* Supporting an endowment fund that will yield minimum-risk investment results sufficient to supplement the monies needed to operate St. Andrew School and thereby minimizing the increase in tuition costs;

* Planning, developing, and carrying out special fundraising activities, the resources of which supplement the endowment fund;

* Maintaining a public information program to increase community awareness of the Foundation’s activities and goals;

* Cultivating and securing active, dues-paying members;

* Developing a planned giving program for donors wishing to leave bequests, charitable remainder trusts and gift annuity agreements that benefit the Foundation.

The St. Andrew School Foundation is administered by a Board of Trustees and an Advisory Board and managed as part of the Catholic Foundation of New Orleans.
