The Verbum Dei 2018 Spring Gala will recognize dedicated friends for their loyal support and personal achievement. At this year's dinner, we are raising funds for the Adopt-A-Student Program that will provide scholarship support for Verbum Dei students. Our goal is to have every student adopted!
As you may know, it costs Verbum Dei about $18,000 to educated each pupil per year, while the tuition is only $2,700. However, families pay on average about $1,100 as no one is turned away for lack of funds. The Corporate Work Study Program generates on average $7,650 per student per year which goes directly toward their education. Some students, but not all, receive support from the Catholic Education Foundation. So, that leaves $10,000 per student each year that must be secured through fundraising efforts. And with over 300 students, the gap is quite large. So, please consider sponsoring the Verbum Dei High School Spring Gala. Your sponsorship will directly impact our students by providing much needed scholarships to fill the funding gap.
