Annual Giving FAQ





This year St. Charles Borromeo School celebrates the launch of its Annual Giving Fund.  Celebrating the School’s 80-year mission of educating students to be Christ-centered, academically strong, and moral community leaders. 


We rely on our community of current and past parents, alumni, grandparents, friends and parishioners every year to ensure our ability to offer an exceptional education to all our students.  Contributions to our Annual Giving Fund touch every aspect of the school.


On an annual basis, your tax-deductible gift helps us apply financial resources to the areas of greatest need. Below are common questions and answers about our Annual Giving Fund. For more information, please contact Brenda Ianniciello at 818-508-5359 or


What is Annual Giving?


Annual Giving is St. Charles Borromeo School’s top annual fundraising priority.  Each year, members of our community (current and past parents, alumni, grandparents, friends and parishioners) are asked to make a tax-deductible gift to St. Charles Borromeo School.  The funds raised through Annual Giving ensures our school has all the necessary resources, facility improvements and flexible tuition to provide each child with an exceptional St. Charles education.


Why doesn’t St. Charles simply raise tuition to cover the true cost of a St. Charles education?


St. Charles endeavors to maintain tuition rates that are comparable with peer schools and kept at a level that makes a Catholic School education possible for a wide scope of families with varying economic circumstances.


Keeping tuition rates moderated, without compromising the quality of our educational program, is an important core value at St. Charles.


How much am I expected to give?


Our request is that you contribute at a level that is personally meaningful and that makes sense for your family, keeping in mind the number of children you have at St. Charles.  Gifts range from $50 to $50,000.  Every gift is greatly valued and deeply appreciated.


Is my gift tax-deductible?


Annual Giving donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.  All donors will be provided with a receipt listing our Tax ID number.


May I make pledge payments over time to maximize my family’s gift?


Yes. Please contact Brenda Ianniciello at, or call us at 818-508-5359 to arrange a personalized payment schedule.


Who is asked to contribute to Annual Giving?


All members of our extended community are asked to participate each year, including current and past parents, alumni, parishioners, friends, and grandparents.
