About our Annual Appeal

What is the Annual Appeal? The Annual Appeal is a program designed to broaden and strengthen the base of financial support for Holy Family School by communicating with the entire Holy Family School community. This enables us to expand awareness of the school’s mission and values and create an increased sense of ownership.

Who will be asked to participate in the Annual Appeal? Each year, the entire Holy Family School Community is asked to participate in the Annual Appeal -- including:

  • faculty and staff
  • the School Advisory Council
  • parents and grandparents
  • Holy Family alumni and parents of recent alumni
  • Holy Family parishioners and parishioners of area Catholic churches with students at Holy Family School -- as well as other members of the surrounding community that share our values and commitment to Catholic education

How are donations to the Annual Fund spent? All of the money raised through our school's Annual Appeal go directly into the school’s general fund and will be used for ongoing school operations, tuition assistance, and the implementation of Strategic Planning Goals as established by our School Advisory Council Strategic Planning Committee.

For more information or to make a donation, please contact Mary Babbles ( or the school office at (315) 487-8515. We thank you for your support!
