The Ignatius Fund

The Ignatius Fund is the foundation for all giving and our first philanthropic priority. The fund, which replaces smaller, school wide fundraisers, provides for the schools’ most immediate operating expenses.

With tuition covering 88% of the grade school’s and 95% of the preschool’s operating budgets, the Ignatius Fund is crucial for filling in the gap between tuition charged and the true cost of a St. Raphael education.
