Notes:
* Our tuition dollars cover between 92 and 93 percent of our operating expenses and while that is better than most schools, we still need to find ways to bridge the gap. The primary approach most schools employ (including Ascension) is through membership to our PSOs and our annual fund. Booster Club membership fees goes toward athletics; FAA membership fees goes toward Fine Arts; and PTO membership fees go toward facilities and faculty needs. Our annual fund goes toward programs of balanced excellence, first class facilities, professional development, stellar stewardship and community outreach and tuition assistance.

**In the past, the individual projects have been funded through fundraising events and individual donors. If you are interested in giving a restricted gift to any of the individual projects, please contact Joshua McClymont in the Development Department.
